Signs new contract with Packers
QBGreen Bay Packers
January 25, 2022
The Packers signed Benkert to a reserve/future contract Tuesday.
ANALYSIS
The quarterback spent the 2021 season on the practice squad while operating as the Packers' third option at his position behind Aaron Rodgers and Jordan Love. Benkert has yet to attempt a pass in the NFL, but he will now compete for an active roster spot in 2022, when he could be the primary backup to Love if Rodgers goes elsewhere or retires.

2019 Fantasy Outlook
Benkert had a rough go of it during his 2018 preseason audition, completing 43.8 percent of his passes, with 5.4 yards per attempt and a 0:4 TD:INT ratio. Still, the Falcons coaching staff saw something beneath the surface that Benkert brought to the table, and decided to offer the former Virginia standout a spot on the practice squad. Benkert evidently grew from that experience, appearing much more poised in his second go-round while competing against the Broncos in the 2019 Hall of Fame Game -- completing 55.9 percent of his attempts for 185 yards and a touchdown. Unfortunately, having suffered a serious toe injury during that contest and since being ruled out for half of the regular season with an injured reserve designation, 2019 doesn't project to be a breakthrough year for Benkert. However, if he rebounds well from the injury and continues to develop his understanding of the playbook, there is a chance he's Atlanta's backup quarterback headed into 2020.
