Signs back up with Green Bay

Etling signed a reserve/future contract with the Packers on Tuesday.

Analysis: Etling will sign his second reserve/future contract with the Packers in as many years. The 28-year-old made a strong impression during the 2022 preseason with Green Bay, though he never had a real chance to make the active roster and ultimately spent the entirety of this regular season on the practice squad. The 6-foot-3 signal-caller will now look to make his heading into the 2023 campaign.

Analysis: Etling will stay with the Packers organization after he was waived Tuesday, joining their practice squad. The quarterback will likely spend the entirety of the season on the practice squad as an extreme depth option behind Aaron Rodgers.

Waived by Packers

Etling was waived by the Packers on Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Etling once again failed to make the active roster after throwing for 220 yards and a touchdown this preseason.

Effective in Packers debut

Etling completed six of eight passes for 123 yards and a touchdown in Friday's preseason opener against the 49ers. He also ran the ball four times for 18 yards.

Analysis: Etling suited up for the Packers for the first time and guided the offense effectively in the second half of Friday's contest. Despite the quality debut, Etling remains firmly behind Aaron Rodgers and Jordan Love on the depth chart, and he has only a slim chance to snag a roster spot if both remain healthy.
