By Nick Freimuth The Green Bay Packers have traded Brett Hundley to the Seattle Seahawks this morning. Talking with the Packers quarterback at 7:29 AM, Hundley told DoorCountyDailyNews.com that the trade had occurred. The announcement comes as sad news for Door and Kewaunee Counties as the QB had been the host of the Jim Olson Motors Red Zone for the past two seasons. Hundley made thousands of new friends on the Door Peninsula with his infectious attitude and love for life.
Hundley had a great opportunity last season playing in Aaron Rodgers absence. He finished the season with 1,836 yards passing, nine touchdowns, 12 interceptions, a completion percentage of 60.8% and a QB rating of 70.6. Hundley will serve as the primary backup to Russell Wilson in the Seattle Seahawks offense. This is not the first time a Packers backup is packing his bags for Seattle. Matt Flynn spent the first four years of his career in Green Bay then joined the Seahawks in 2012.
Hundley was a regular on Door County fishing charters, hunting excursions, snowmobile trips, sheepshead games, countless meals at Sonny’s Italian Kitchen and Pizzeria and even made appearances at local elementary schools in the county. Door County will certainly miss #7 but the impact he had on the area and his fans will be long-lasting. Thank you Brett Hundley, we love you and best of luck in Seattle.
