Potential quarterback moves for Packers with Rodgers out
FOX Sports Wisconsin
Let's face it, you can't replace Aaron Rodgers. But the Green Bay Packers are going to have to find another quarterback (or two) to put on the roster with Rodgers out for a while, and possibly the season, with a broken collarbone. FOX Sports Wisconsin offers up a few suggestions.

Ride it out with Brett Hundley
Green Bay made Hundley the backup this season and last, which means the Packers have to have some trust to put him in a game. Hundley had a decent preseason -- completing 63.2 percent of his passes with three touchdowns and one interception. Hundley likely has had little time with the first team in practice, so don't just go by his emergency performance against Minnesota. He threw his first career touchdown pass in relief in the second quarter and finished 18 for 33 for 157 yards. He was also picked off three times and sacked four times. A bye week in two Sundays also could help Hundley get up to speed faster. It's time to find out what he can do.

Trade for Taysom Hill
Hill was electric in the preseason for Green Bay -- completing 14 of 20 passes for 149 yards and two TDs -- and the Packers had hoped to put him on their practice squad. However, New Orleans picked him up off waivers. Hill is currently the No. 3 QB in New Orleans behind Drew Brees and Chase Daniel, so there's little chance he plays. Perhaps the Saints would flip him to Green Bay for a seventh-rounder? He'd already know the system, which is an advantage.

Promote Joe Callahan
We expect the first move Green Bay to make it call Callahan up from the practice squad. It would be hard to sign a QB unknown to the system and expect him to back up next week. Callahan has been with Green Bay on and off the past couple of years, and some thought he should have been the No. 2 instead of Hundley last year. Bring him up as at least a one-week insurance policy.

Sign Colin Kaepernick
Want to make a run at the playoffs, how about a guy with Super Bowl experience? It's not like the NFC North isn't up for grabs. Kaepernick reportedly is filing a grievance against the NFL for collusion. Green Bay has a chance to nip that in the bud by signing a guy who passed for 2,241 yards in 12 games last year with 16 TDs and just four interceptions. Might there be a furor over his politics? Maybe. But winning usually solves any issues.

Sign Robert Griffin III
OK, the former No. 2 overall pick's NFL career hasn't gone as planned. Maybe he's worth a risk? If you've seen the other available quarterbacks out there, trust us, the Packers could do a lot worse. We wouldn't expect miracles, but, again, Green Bay has just one game before its bye, so there's time to get him up to speed.
Convince Tony Romo to unretire
Yeah, we doubt this will happen, but if there's one team Romo would play for would the Burlington, Wis., native come back to play for the one in his home state?
