GREEN BAY – The Packers locked in Aaron Rodgers for the foreseeable future back in March when they signed him to a three-year extension worth $150.8 million with $101.5 million in guarantees.

That takes care of the starting quarterback, but the Packers are losing depth behind him as they have waived backup signal-caller, Kurt Benkert, per Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.

Benkert went undrafted in 2018 out of Virginia. After three seasons with the Atlanta Falcons, he signed with the Packers in May of 2021. He didn’t make the final roster cut but was signed to the practice squad. He elevated to the active roster in December when Jordan Love was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

Benkert has only logged two snaps in his career and had yet to attempt a pass.
