XFL: Las Vegas Vipers Sign Former Green Bay Packers QB Brett Hundley

The Las Vegas Vipers of the XFL have announced a huge signing with just days to go before the XFL kicks off, bringing in former Green Bay Packers veteran quarterback Brett Hundley.

The Vipers released former USFL and Spring League quarterback Bryan Scott over an apparent dispute in playing time. Shortly thereafter, the team announced the splash signing of nine-year NFL veteran Brett Hundley.

Hundley, 29, is best known for starting nine games for Aaron Rodgers in 2017, where he threw for 1,836, nine touchdowns, and 12 interceptions. The now 29-year-old most recently spent 2022 season with the Baltimore Ravens, after stints with the Arizona Cardinals, Seattle Seahawks, Indianapolis Colts, and Green Bay Packers.

The seven-year NFL vet is one of the highestpaid players in the XFL, reportedly making well over $200k for the season.

Prior to the NFL, Hundley spent three seasons at UCLA and finished his collegiate career with 9,966 career passing yards to go with 75 touchdowns. He also rushed for 1,747 yards and 30 touchdowns. Hundley holds numerous records for the Bruins, including career touchdown passes and total offense yards at 11,285, and touchdown passes. Following his junior season, Hundley was named to the All-Pac-12 second team.

Hundley joins a quarterback room that also features Luis Perez a staple in alt-football and probably the best quarterback in last year’s USFL. He will however be joining former teammate wide receiver Geronimo Allison from his team with the Green Bay Packers in Las Vegas.
