Former Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Hundley is participating in the Minnesota Vikings rookie minicamp this week with the hopes of landing a job.

Earlier this year, we saw a pair of former Green Bay Packers in Za’Darius Smith and Chandon Sullivan sign contracts with the Minnesota Vikings. Now there’s a possibility that the Vikings might add another former member of the Packers to their 2022 roster.

Minnesota held their first session of rookie minicamp on Friday, and among the players participating this year is former Green Bay draft selection, quarterback Brett Hundley.

After spending his college career with Eric Kendricks at UCLA, Hundley was picked in the fifth round by the Packers back during the 2015 NFL Draft. Since then, he’s bounced around the league, spending time with Green Bay, the Arizona Cardinals, and the Indianapolis Colts.

Currently, the Vikings already have four quarterbacks on their roster in Kirk Cousins, Sean Mannion, Kellen Mond, and Nate Stanley.

This offseason, Cousins was given an extension, and Mannion was re-signed, so Minnesota’s new coaching staff clearly feels comfortable with these two at the top of the team’s quarterback depth chart.

But behind Cousins and Mannion, it’s anyone’s guess. The people in charge of the Vikings have zero attachments to Mond or Stanley since they weren’t part of the franchise when the team drafted either of them. Perhaps Hundley was brought in to see if he could challenge for the No. 3 spot in the team’s quarterback room.

Some Minnesota fans might not be too familiar with Hundley at first, but a bell might ring when we remind you that he was the guy who stepped in as Green Bay’s starter in 2017 after Aaron Rodgers was injured on a tackle by Anthony Barr.

The Packers ended up only winning three of Hundley’s nine starts during the 2017 season, and it became pretty obvious that his role in the NFL was going to be as a backup at best.

We’ll just have to wait and see if Hundley is able to do enough during this year’s Vikings’ rookie minicamp to earn a spot on the team’s 90-man roster.
