I had somewhat forgotten about Brett Hundley, Aaron Rodgers’ former backup. That might be because Brett Hundley is forgettable.
The Green Bay Packers traded Hundley to the Seattle Seahawks during the preseason for a 2019 sixth-round pick. That’s pretty much the last we’ve heard of Hundley. He is Russell Wilson’s backup, but Wilson doesn’t come out and he doesn’t get hurt. So predictably, Hundley hasn’t played in a game this season.
Well, we remembered Hunley today. Certainly not for anything he did with the Packers. More like what he’s telling the Seahawks about the Packers ahead of Thursday night’s game.
Hundley said he doesn’t have any secrets to tell his coaches, although he does have some knowledge about how the Packers run their offense. Specifically, he noted how Rodgers extends plays and what the receivers do when that happens. Apparently, these things are scripted.
Hundley has been running the scout team, mimicking the Packers, this week. Certainly, he can bring something there too.
The question is, will it matter?
Here’s the report. The part about Hundley is toward the end.
More from #Seahawks HQ, where Pete Carroll sees parallels to 2015 — when Seattle started 4-5, then won 6 of last 7 to reach playoffs — and Brett Hundley is playing old friend Aaron Rodgers in practice. @nflnetwork pic.twitter.com/K68juQGjFq
