The Arizona Cardinals are planning to sign quarterback and Chandler High School alum Brett Hundley to a one-year contract, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Tuesday. The deal is reportedly worth $2 million.
The 25-year-old Hundley is a Chandler native who starred at Chandler HS before joining UCLA in 2011. He guided the Bruins to back-to-back 10-win seasons in 2013 and '14. He was selected by the Green Bay Packers in the fifth round of the 2015 NFL Draft and spent three seasons in Green Bay before being traded to the Seattle Seahawks before the 2018 season.

Hundley became just the second Arizona-born quarterback to play in an NFL conference championship game when he replaced Aaron Rodgers late in the Packers' loss to the Atlanta Falcons in the NFC Championship Game in January 2017. Former ASU star Danny White was the first.
Hundley started nine games for the Packers in the 2017 season when Rodgers went down with a season-ending injury.
Hundley's successor at UCLA was current Cardinals QB Josh Rosen, who played three seasons for the Bruins before being selected by the Cardinals with the 10th overall pick in the 2018 draft.
Last week, the Cardinals released backup QB Mike Glennon after one season with the team.
