With only two quarterbacks on the roster, and one – MVP Aaron Rodgers – currently skipping the virtual offseason workout program while battling the organization, the Green Bay Packers are on the hunt for a new quarterback to add.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Packers have “begun exploring” the quarterback market, which includes veteran quarterback options.

General manager Brian Gutekunst confirmed following the draft that he would need to add at least one or two new quarterbacks at some point this offseason.

The issue isn’t just tied to Rodgers’ situation. The Packers lost Tim Boyle in free agency, leaving only Rodgers and Jordan Love on the roster at quarterback. Even if Rodgers remains, the team will need a third option to develop.

An experienced passer makes sense given that Rodgers could sit out the entire offseason workout program and potentially even training camp. Love has no playing experience at the NFL level, so a veteran could provide some insurance at the game’s most important position while Rodgers determines his own future.

The Packers did not add an undrafted free agent at quarterback immediately following the draft. It’s possible the team could sign both a college free agent and a veteran free agent at some point this offseason.
