  Raiders | DeShone Kizer leaving Las Vegas    Tue May 5, 04:47 PM

Las Vegas Raiders QB DeShone Kizer was waived Tuesday, May 5, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Raiders have Nathan Peterman, who they really like, as the No.3 quarterback on the roster. They'll have Derek Carr compete with Marcus Mariota for a starting job in training camp. Kizer might latch on with a team as a camp arm somewhere.

  Packers | DeShone Kizer cut    Sat Aug 31, 02:46 PM

Green Bay Packers QB DeShone Kizer was released Saturday, Aug. 31.

Footballguys view: So much for that experiment. Through two seasons, Kizer has thrown 11 touchdowns to 24 interceptions. He'll look for work in a quarterback desperate league that is the NFL but we don't have high hopes for his production no matter where he lands. The Packers move on with Tim Boyle as the No. 2 quarterback behind Aaron Rodgers...for now.

  Packers | Lofty goals for DeShone Kizer    Sun Jul 14, 08:49 PM

Green Bay Packers QB DeShone Kizer said he sees himself 'as a future Super Bowl MVP' and not just a career backup. 'That's the goal that I want to head toward,' Kizer said. 'That's the level I want to play at.'

Footballguys view: Kizer looks like a career backup so far, even with plenty of starting experience a couple of years ago with the Browns. We'll see if he can perform better this preseason.

  Packers | DeShone Kizer the backup    Wed Aug 29, 10:13 AM

Green Bay Packers QB DeShone Kizer becomes the No. 2 quarterback after the Packers sent QB Brett Hundley to the Seattle Seahawks for a 2019 draft pick Wednesday, Aug. 29.

Footballguys view: Once Kizer was added by the Packers, the writing was on the wall for Hundley...especially after he failed to impress in 10 games as a starter for the Packers last year while Aaron Rodgers was hurt. It's not like Kizer was a superb starter for the Browns last year (11 touchdowns, 22 interceptions) but he could look better with better pieces around him.

  Packers | DeShone Kizer impresses Thursday    Thu Aug 16, 10:41 PM

Green Bay Packers QB DeShone Kizer completed seven of his 12 passes for 149 yards and two touchdowns against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the preseason Thursday, Aug. 16.

Footballguys view: Kizer looked better as a Packer than he did as a Brown, to no one's surprise. He's set to be Aaron Rodgers backup starting in 2019 after Brett Hundley becomes a free agent, and if Rodgers were to miss time this year, he could push Hundley for playing time.

  Packers | DeShone Kizer the frontrunner at QB2    Wed Jul 25, 02:35 AM

Green Bay Packers QB DeShone Kizer should be considered the frontrunner to be QB Aaron Rodgers' backup this season, according to USA TODAY NETWORK Wisconsin's Ryan Wood, who also believes QB Brett Hundley could be released.

Footballguys view: That's not a surprise. Hundley was not ready to start last year when he filled in for an injured Aaron Rodgers. Kizer may not have been ready to start for the Browns as a rookie in 2017 but it seemed like he was ahead of where Hundley was in 2017.

  Packers | Backup QBs struggle during workouts    Thu Jun 21, 03:50 PM

Green Bay Packers QBs Brett Hundley and DeShone Kizer will compete for the No. 2 quarterback job during training camp, but both quarterbacks struggled at times during offseason workouts.

Footballguys view: Neither of them is a great option if Aaron Rodgers goes down. Hundley wasn't all that impressive last time he had to carry the load and Kizer was shaky with the Browns last season. Once again, the Packers have to pray Rodgers avoids injury.

  Packers | GB high on DeShone Kizer    Mon May 7, 09:04 AM

Green Bay Packers QB DeShone Kizer has starter ability and franchise potential, according to Packers head coach Mike McCarthy. Kizer will compete with QB Brett Hundley for the backup job. 'In my opinion, if he was in that class this year,' McCarthy said, 'he would've been part of that group of first four guys, or first five. I always felt there were five, the five quarterbacks, first-round guys.'

Footballguys view: Kizer would have easily been sixth out of the 'big 5' at quarterback this year. We might even rate him behind Mason Rudolph (Steelers) if Kizer was in this draft class. While he thinks he's part Cam Newton and Tom Brady, Kizer played more like JaMarcus Russell last year. Perhaps a change of scenery will do him some good.

  Packers | DeShone Kizer officially joins GB    Wed Mar 14, 05:15 PM

Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer was officially acquired by the Green Bay Packers Wednesday, March 14, in exchange for CB Damarious Randall. The Browns and Packers also swapped 2018 fourth-round and fifth-round draft choices in the trade.

Footballguys view: Once Aaron Rodgers went down with an injury, the Packers were off track quickly with Brett Hundley at quarterback. Not to say Kizer will be much better, but we'll see what he can look like with a fresh start and a better situation around him.

  Packers | Green Bay lands DeShone Kizer    Fri Mar 9, 06:51 PM

The Green Bay Packers agreed to acquire QB DeShone Kizer from the Cleveland Browns in exchange for an undisclosed package of picks or players Friday, March 9.

Footballguys view: Kizer did not have a good rookie season in 2017 with 11 touchdown passes and 22 interceptions. The second-round pick out of Notre Dame will now benefit from working behind Aaron Rodgers and having more time to develop. With Kizer on the team, expect the Packers to move on from Brett Hundley.

  Browns | DeShone Kizer headed to Green Bay    Fri Mar 9, 06:40 PM

The Cleveland Browns agreed to trade QB DeShone Kizer to the Green Bay Packers in exchange for an undisclosed package of picks or players Friday, March 9.

Footballguys view: With the trade for Tyrod Taylor, the Browns were clearly moving on from Kizer. With two top-4 picks in the 2018 NFL draft, we expect the Browns to take yet another quarterback who can take over for Taylor when ready.

  Browns | Rookie QB may not start for Browns    Thu Mar 1, 01:30 PM

Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer or a veteran quarterback could be starting for the Browns in Week 1 if head coach Hue Jackson has his way. Jackson said it would be best to not start a rookie quarterback right away, even if Cleveland chooses that player with the No. 1 overall draft pick. Jackson added that the Browns could pursue a quarterback in free agency.

Footballguys view: We agree that starting their rookie quarterback -- if they take one -- could be a bad idea if the rest of the offense is a mess. But if the Browns continue to struggle, there would be all sorts of pressure to put the new guy under center. Patience is not a common commodity around the NFL when it comes to quarterbacks -- neither among coaches nor fanbases.

Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer completed 16-of-30 passes for 314 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in the Week 17 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers and he rushed six times for a team-high 61 yards. RB Isaiah Crowell finished up with 15 carries and just 21 yards. RB Duke Johnson ran six times for 20 yards and a touchdown, while adding six receptions for 75 yards. WR Josh Gordon was good for four receptions and 115 yards on seven targets, while WR Rashard Higgins shook free for two scores, finishing with three grabs and 68 yards. TE David Njoku ended his season with two grabs and 38 yards, while WR Corey Coleman managed just one grab for 18 yards.

Cleveland Browns QB DeShone Kizer went 18-for-36 for 182 yards and two interceptions against the Chicago Bears in Week 16.

Footballguys view: Kizer paid off as a matchup for fantasy defenses for the second straight week. He wasn't able to operate well in the snow. The Steelers defense will benefit from this matchup next week unless Kizer is benched again.
