Going into the summer, the Green Bay Packers knew Aaron Rodgers was their quarterback. The question was who would back him up.

Well, that question has been answered. Green Bay has traded Brett Hundley to Seattle in exchange for a 2019 draft pick, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter and Rob Demovsky.

With this move, DeShone Kizer officially wins the backup job in Green Bay. Kizer was acquired by the Packers from the Cleveland Browns in March.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Seahawks are sending over a sixth-round pick in return for Hundley.

Hundley played in 15 games for the Packers over the last two seasons. He was a fifth-round pick of the team out of UCLA in 2015.

Last year, Hundley played in 11 contests, making nine starts for an injured Rodgers. He completed 60.8 percent of his passes for 1,836 yards, nine touchdowns and 12 interceptions.

Kizer, meanwhile, started 15 games for the Browns last year as a rookie. He threw for 2,894 yards and 11 touchdowns, but also tossed 22 interceptions.
