RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Tolzien heads to Indianapolis after spending the past three seasons under Aaron Rodgers' wing in Green Bay. With the retirement of Matthew Hasselbeck in the offseason, the 28-year-old inherits the number two spot on the depth chart behind franchise quarterback Andrew Luck. Luck dealt with several injuries last season but all signs point to a healthy return to the field in 2016 which means Tolzien should spend most of his time on the sidelines.

2015

Tolzien will be the clear backup quarterback behind Aaron Rodgers this season with Matt Flynn out of town. The Packers are hoping he only sees the field when Rodgers is resting, but in the case he is needed for more, he does have two career starts under his belt.

2014

Tolzien played in three games for the Packers last season and even started two, but he will head into 2014 as the team's third quarterback behind a healthy Aaron Rodgers and backup Matt Flynn.

2013

Signed with the Packers' practice squad in September.

2011

Tolzien will probably make the team as the number three quarterback in San Diego. He holds Wisconsin school records for career completion percentage at .681 and career QB efficiency rating of 153.2, and he was second-team All-Big Ten in 2010.
