Former Penn State Quarterback Sean Clifford Secures Backup Job With Green Bay Packers

Sean Clifford will have a roster spot for his rookie season in the NFL.

Green Bay Packers head coach Matt LaFleur announced Clifford as the backup quarterback during a press conference on Thursday.

Clifford will back up starter Jordan Love, a first-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft out of Utah State. Clifford, a Cincinnati, Ohio, native continually impressed coaches and staff during preseason camp, racking up 345 yards and one touchdown in two preseason games before being named to the backup spot.

Before being named to the backup job, Clifford took over the locker of departed star quarterback Aaron Rodgers after his move to the New York Jets.

During his career at Penn State, Clifford set the record for wins, passing yards, and passing touchdowns while leading the Nittany Lions to two bowl game victories.

The Packers wrap up their preseason slate at 1 p.m. on August 26 against the Seahawks and kick their season off against the Bears at 4:25 p.m. on September 10.
