Former San Clemente High School and Boston College quarterback Chase Rettig did not get selected during the 2014 NFL Draft, but after the draft ended on May 10, the Green Bay Packers came calling.
Rettig signed with the Packers as a non-drafted free agent on May 12, according to the team’s website.
He also had offers from Miami, Detroit, Cleveland, San Diego and Atlanta, according to a report from the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.
Rettig (6-feet-3-inches, 206 pounds) threw for 8,263 yards and 52 touchdowns, completing 55.2 percent of his passes, in his career at Boston College. He had a 20-30 record as a starter under head coaches Frank Spaziani and Steve Addazio. He finished his career as the Eagles fourth all-time leader in passing yards and touchdowns.
Rettig joins a quarterback group made up of veterans Matt Flynn and Scott Tolzien, along with current starter and three-time Pro Bowl selection Aaron Rodgers.
