Scott Tolzien, Green Bay Packers quarterback: The Packers' new No. 3 quarterback spent the past two seasons with the San Francisco 49ers, who just happen to be Green Bay's Week 1 opponent. Coincidence? Probably not. The Packers also managed to keep athletic seventh-round wide receiver Charles Johnson on their practice squad.
Thaddeus Lewis, Buffalo Bills quarterback: As is the case with Tolzien, Lewis effectively is the Bills' No. 3 quarterback after passing through waivers unclaimed. Coach Doug Marroneplans to determine Wednesday whether EJ Manuel or Jeff Tuel will start the season opener versus the Patriots. Manuel returned to practice Sunday.
