Brady, a San Diego native, also threw 34 touchdown passes last year, a school single-season record, while passing for a career-high 3,355 yards, based on 257 completions in 428 attempts, and posting seven 300-yard games. Author of 18 300-yard games overall, he also has been a durable performer, making 43 consecutive starts for Northridge.
Earlier, Brady was a three-sport star at Samuel F.B. Morse High School in San Diego, lettering twice in football, twice in baseball and once in basketball, helping his team win back-to-back conference (Eastern League) football championships in 1995 and 1996.
Brady becomes the fifth quarterback on the Packers' roster, joining Brett Favre, Doug Pederson, Josh Heupel and fifth-round draftee Craig Nall of Northwestern (La.) State.
