MILWAUKEE - A person familiar with the deal says that the Seattle Seahawks have acquired quarterback Brett Hundley from the Green Bay Packers.
The person spoke Wednesday to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the trade hasn't been announced by the teams. ESPN.com first reported the deal.
The trade was completed on the cusp of the conclusion of the preseason and gives the Seahawks a proven backup behind Russell Wilson. The Seahawks are reportedly sending a late-round draft pick to Green Bay.
Hundley stepped into a starting role last season for the Packers when Aaron Rodgers went down with a broken collarbone. Hundley started nine games and the Packers went 3-6. He threw for 1,836 yards and nine touchdowns, but also threw 12 interceptions.
His acquisition likely means the end of Austin Davis's stint as Wilson's backup in Seattle. Davis has been with the Seahawks since the start of the 2017 season.
In Green Bay, the deal means that DeShone Kizer has won the backup job behind Rodgers.
