NFL Rumors: Green Bay Packers Eyeing 4th Quarterback For Camp

According to a report, the Green Bay Packers want to bring a fourth quarterback to training camp this summer and are in the market for young prospects … again.

Last year, the Packers had Graham Harrell and B.J. Coleman in training camp, but neither made the 53-man roster.

Right now, Green Bay has Aaron Rodgers firmly entrenched as the starter, with Matt Flynn projected as the backup and Scott Tolzien as the third-stringer.

According to Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the Packers will add another quarterback at this week’s draft or from among the undrafted free agents who aren’t picked this weekend.

Green Bay hosted four quarterbacks earlier this spring, including Tom Savage of Pittsburgh, San Jose State’s David Fales, Keith Wenning of Ball State and North Dakota State’s Brock Jensen.

Savage has been seeing some late movement up many of the pre-draft boards, with some draft forecasters now projecting him as a second-day pick in the second or third round.

He began his college career at Rutgers, transferred to Arizona, sat out a year, transferred again to Pittsburgh without ever playing at Arizona, and wound up missing two full seasons before finishing his career with the Panthers.

Savage completed 62.1 percent of his passes last season for 2,958 yards with 21 touchdowns and nine interceptions.

Fales put up gaudy numbers at San Jose State the last two seasons, throwing for 8,382 yards with 66 touchdowns and 22 picks, completing 68.1 percent of his throws.

Wenning had 4,148 passing yards for Ball State last season to go with 35 touchdowns and seven interceptions.

Jensen is a Wisconsin native—he played at Waupaca High School—and led North Dakota State to three consecutive FCS championships. He threw for 8,598 yards in four seasons, completing 62.5 percent of his passes for 72 touchdowns with 21 interceptions.
