The Packers needed to find a better backup after last season's debacle.
The trade was the last in a flurry of moves made by Dorsey on Friday, coming shortly after he acquired quarterback Tyrod Taylor from the Buffalo Bills and franchise-tagged wide receiver Jarvis Landry from the Miami Dolphins. He's spent time at both free safety and cornerback for Green Bay and can help the Browns no matter which position they decide to play him at. The former Notre Dame quarterback started 15 games as a rookie with the Browns, but he apparently has been identified by new G.M. John Dorsey as a player who needed to go - possibly due in part to the 28 turnovers he generated past year. Hundley filled in for Aaron Rodgers after he went down a collarbone injury.
The Toledo, Ohio, native completed 255 of 476 passes for 2,894 yards and 11 touchdowns. He finished the year as the Packers' leader in interceptions (four) and pass break-ups (13). He also has experience playing safety. Kizer had an NFL-high 22 interceptions as well as nine fumbles (six lost) in his first season.
The Notre Dame product had a rough rookie season, as he found himself in and out of the lineup in what would be just the second 0-16 season in National Football League history.
A year ago, quarterback DeShone Kizer was a borderline first-round prospect.
