The Packers have signed four-year Boston College QB Chase Rettig as an undrafted free agent, the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel’s Tyler Dunne reports.
In his career in Chestnut Hill, Rettig completed 55.2% of his passes and 52 TDs, helping his Eagles make it to two bowl games.
Last week, it was reported that Green Bay wanted to bring four QBs to training camp, with Pittsburgh’s Tom Savage, San Jose State’s David Fales, Ball State’s Keith Wenning, and North Dakota State’s Brock Jensen all being considered as possible acquisitions.
Three of those four, however, were drafted this weekend, with Jensen also being signed as a UFA by the Miami Dolphins.
So, it seems like Gettig was the best possible arm remaining. He’s not incredible by any means, as no team he led in college won more than seven games, but since he is a decent scrambler and possesses a solid arm I guess he’s an overall good signing. Again, he’s no superstar, but him giving Tolzein a run for the practice squad this year wouldn’t surprise me.
Anyway, since Gettig obviously wasn’t the only prospect the Pack signed yesterday, I’ll put a link for the rest here. Make sure to check it out.
