To prepare for training camp, we will be breaking down every player on the Green Bay Packers' 90-man roster in more detail, looking at contract terms and 2013 statistics, before we make our prediction for which players will make the 53-man roster at the end of training camp.

We move on from the returning quarterbacks to the single addition at that position, Boston College's Chase Rettig. After Mike McCarthy said on numerous occasions that he wanted to have four QBs for training camp, he got just that on the third day of the draft, but he did not get a draft pick - instead, Rettig was signed as an undrafted free agent. Here's a quick look at the details on the young passer.

2013 Statistics

Boston College Golden Eagles

13 games played, 13 starts
Passing: 162-263 (61.6%), 1,995 yards, 17 TDs, 8 INTs, 140.6/93.9 passer ratings (college/NFL formulas)
Rushing: 60 attempts, 71 yards (1.2 YPC), 1 TD

Career College Statistics

46 games
Passing: 685-1242 (55.2%), 8,253 yards, 52 TDs, 39 INTs, 118.5/76.6 passer ratings (college/NFL)

Rettig, a four-year starter at Boston College, dealt with numerous different offensive coordinators in his time in college football. His senior year found him having the best success of his career in terms of efficiency, as he set career highs in completion percentage, yards per attempt, and TD%. A long shot to make the team, Rettig's best shot is probably as a member of the practice squad to start the season.
