LATEST NEWS: Former Green Bay Packers Quarterback Leads Current Team To Championship Game…

The Green Bay Packers have a rich history of quarterbacks. Of course, Bart Starr, Brett Favre, and Aaron Rodgers are the three mainstays that every fan knows about. There have been multiple others like Lynn Dickey and Don Majkowski who had significant impacts on the organization.

According to Justis Mosqueda of Acme Packing Company:

starting quarterback Danny Etling, a former member of the Green Bay Packers, in the team’s USFL Conference championship game against the Birmingham Stallions this weekend.

Interestingly enough, the two teams also faced off this past Saturday when Etling’s Panthers fell short by one point to the Stallions after kicker Jake Bates — who is drawing NFL attention — missed a 53-yard field goal with time expiring.

On the year, Etling has completed 69 passes off of 114 attempts for 787 yards (6.9 yards per pass), three touchdowns and two interceptions. He’s also ran for 143 yards and two scores during the UFL’s regular season.

Etling first got an opportunity in Green Bay when he was signed as a one-week practice squad player in 2021 while then backup quarterback Jordan Love was dealing with being on the COVID/reserve list.

At the end of that season, he signed a reserve/futures contract with the team, leading to Etling making the full-time practice squad for the duration of the 2022 season. He also signed a reserve/futures contract following that year, which kept him on the roster until his final release from Green Bay on August 6th of 2023. In December, he signed with the Panthers after previously playing for seven NFL teams and the CFL’s BC Lions.
