The Green Bay Packers don’t have a reliable No.2 quarterback on the roster. There are multiple players available that would make for suitable backups to Aaron Rodgers.

The Carolina Panthers released Cam Newton a week into free agency. He might end up signing with a team, such as the Los Angeles Chargers, that would allow him to compete for the starting job.

Jameis Winston and Andy Dalton are also available. Winston is a free agent with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers acquiring Tom Brady. Dalton is expected to be either traded or released by the Cincinnati Bengals.

Both Winston and Dalton are probably hoping to start somewhere in the 2020 season, but it’s looking more and more likely that they’ll have to accept being the second quarterback on a depth chart.

It’s been suggested that the Pittsburgh Steelers might be a fit for Winston. Why not Green Bay? The Packers also have a veteran quarterback that’s had trouble staying healthy in recent seasons.

Rodgers missed nine games in the 2017 season because of a broken collarbone. He played all 16 games in 2018, but he did so almost the entire year with a knee injury.

Green Bay is 5-10-1 in the last seven seasons when a quarterback other than Rodgers starts.

Undrafted players Tim Boyle and Manny Wilkins are the other quarterbacks on Green Bay’s roster. Boyle has attempted four career passes. Wilkins hasn’t played an NFL game.

DraftKings Sportsbook gives Green Bay +2500 odds to sign Winston. Eleven other teams are given a better chance to acquire the NFL’s leading passer. There is no clear landing spot for the former No.1 overall pick.

The Packers have +3300 odds to acquire Dalton. Nine teams are given a better chance to have Dalton on their roster in Week 1.
