The Seahawks added to the competition at quarterback just before the start of the season, acquiring Brett Hundley in a trade with the Green Bay Packers for an undisclosed 2019 draft pick.
Hundley, 25, was a 2015 fifth-round pick out of UCLA, where he established school records for touchdowns passes (75), total touchdowns (105), and total offense (11,713 yards) in just three seasons.
After playing sparingly his first two seasons in Green Bay, Hundley took over the starting role last season when Aaron Rodgers went down with a broken collar bone. Hundley started nine games in place of Rodgers, and finished the year completing 192 of 316 passes for 1,836 yards, 9 touchdowns and 12 interceptions, giving him a 70.6 passer rating. Hundley also rushed for 270 yards and two touchdowns on 36 carries.
Prior to this trade, Austin Davis, last year's backup, and Alex McGough, a seventh-round pick in this year's draft, had been competing for the backup job behind Seahawks starter Russell Wilson.
Linebacker Jason Hall was waived to make room on the 90-man roster. Hall, an undrafted rookie out of Texas, initially signed with Seattle following the 2018 draft, then was waived in May before eventually re-signing earlier this month.
