GREEN BAY, Wisconsin — Based on what he's done this preseason for the Green Bay Packers, rookie Brett Hundley may someday turn into a starting quarterback in the NFL.
The New Orleans Saints would just like to find decent replacements in their depleted secondary before the regular season starts in less than two weeks.
Hundley threw for four scores, Myles White made a case for a spot in the Packers' injury-stricken receiving corps with two touchdowns, and Green Bay finished the preseason with a 38-10 win Thursday night over winless New Orleans.
"He has a lot in front of him," coach Mike McCarthy said about Hundley. "He has a lot to learn."
Hundley connected with Larry Pinkard on a 77-yard catch-and-run touchdown in the third quarter for the Packers (2-2). Pinkard had a highlight-reel play that the roster longshot needed to make an impression with cuts looming, though he later left with a sprained shoulder.
"We're going to have tough decisions to make," McCarthy said.
The Saints' defense helped make it look easy.
Pinkard's long touchdown came after safety Pierre Warren slipped and cornerback Stanley Jean-Baptiste lost a race to the end zone. Cornerback Kyle Wilson had an interception but was called for two penalties.
"We'll have to watch the tape, but I thought we struggled at corner," Saints coach Sean Payton said.
He finished with three catches for 31 yards.
"I produced, I put good stuff on tape, so hopefully the coaches like what I've done and they keep me on," Snead said.
McCown started and was 5 of 5 for 82 yards in his only series. Drew Brees was among the many regulars who were held out with the regular season starting in less than two weeks.
With backup jobs at stake, Ryan Griffin took over for McCown and went 7 of 13 for 56 yards. Rookie Garrett Grayson, who was drafted in the third round, played the second half and moved the ball effectively at times, finishing 8 of 19 for 71 yards but throwing two interceptions.
Tolzien, who started on Thursday with Rodgers watching in sweats. He finished 7 of 11 for 41 yards, leaving early in the second quarter.
A fifth-round draft pick out of UCLA, Hundley flashed promise for a second straight game, showing zip on his passes while moving the offense effectively. He was 16 of 23 for 236 yards.
Pinkard's 77-yard touchdown was his only catch of the night. He struggled making it up the wall for his first Lambeau Leap.
"I barely had enough gas," Pinkard said.
Like other players on the bubble, Pinkard said he's going to be nervous the next few days. He also said he was going to be fine after his shoulder injury.
"I definitely believe I did grab a few people's attention tonight," Pinkard said.
The NFL experimented with a six-man officiating crew for two series in the fourth quarter, with referee Jeff Triplette watching from the sideline. Phil Luckett, the NFL associate supervisor of officials, said it was a test that was supposed to be held at all 16 preseason games on Thursday night.
"Just to get a little experience working six-man, in case it happens during the season," Luckett said.
