Both Jake Browning and Siemain have struggled. That latter will start on Friday in Atlanta. If he plays well, then he can take control of an underwhelming backup quarterback battle.

Turner is slender, but has the elite speed to run with deep targets and the deft footwork to compete against route specialists.

Packers OT David Bakhtiari on QB Jordan Love: 'His baseline for me is way higher' than usual first-year starter
"Definitely a higher standard," Bakhtiari told The Jim Rome Show on Tuesday when asked if he was evaluating Love as a first-year quarterback or something more.
