Brett Hundley is on the move from Green Bay to Seattle. The Packers have dealt their former backup QB to the Seahawks, who needed some stability at that position behind Russell Wilson. While Hundley is no Russell Wilson, Hundley has similar dual-threat athletic potential that surely attracted Pete Carroll.
Packers are trading QB Brett Hundley to the Seattle Seahawks for a 2019 draft pick, per @RobDemovsky and me.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) August 29, 2018
It's looking like it will be a sixth-round pick heading to Green Bay, but Hundley was a fifth-round pick himself.
When the Packers traded for Browns second-year QB DeShone Kizer earlier this offseason, it was clear he was coming in to compete with and potentially replace Hundley. The UCLA product struggled in place of Aaron Rodgers last season, going 3-6 with 9 touchdowns and 12 interceptions in his nine starts for Green Bay.

Brett Hundley now will back up Russell Wilson in Seattle.
DeShone Kizer now will back up Aaron Rodgers in Green Bay.
This trade does seem to solve the backup quarterback question for both teams, and could also benefit those QBs.
