The Facts: According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Packers have traded for Kizer.
Diehards Line:With the Browns trading for Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (and still able to land one early in April's NFL Draft if they so desire), moving on from Kizer, who had a disastrous rookie season, makes sense for the Browns. It also has to be viewed as a positive for Kizer, who was named the starter to open 2017 even though he wasn't ready. He had trouble protecting the ball all season. He threw a league-high 22 interceptions and was ineffective in the red zone. His 53.6 completion percentage was the worst in the league. Now he'll get a chance to spend time watching and working behind Aaron Rodgers. Remember, Brett Hundley wasn't the answer when given the opportunity to fill in with Rodgers sidelined by a broken collarbone this past season. Hundley's passer rating of 70.6 was miserable and he set a new record for most consecutive passes at home (162) without a touchdown pass. No. 3 Joe Callahan doesn't appear to have the size (6-1) or arm strength to have much of a future in the league. So providing Kizer, a second-round pick in last year's draft, with a change of scenery isn't the worst idea.
