The Green Bay Packers signed quarterback Matt Blanchard on Wednesday.

Blanchard, a three-time national champion at Division III powerhouse Wisconsin-Whitewater, had spent the past three seasons with the Chicago Bears and Carolina Panthers.

In 2012, the quarterback was on the Bears’ practice squad. In 2013, he was on the Panthers’ practice squad, and last year the Panthers stashed him on injured reserve with a concussion.

Blanchard sits behind Aaron Rodgers and Scott Tolzien on the Packers’ depth chart.
