According to Magiera:
Skelton was drafted by the Arizona Cardinals in the fifth round of the 2010 NFL draft, starting in 17 games over three seasons before being released. The journeyman quarterback was released by the Cincinnati Bengals during the final round of training camp cuts. Skelton was then signed a one-year deal with the San Francisco 49ers, but the team released him in early October.
Mike McCarthy confirmed Matt Flynn's workout in Green Bay on Monday, saying he "looked good" but offered little more.
It's perhaps possible that the Packers are not comfortable with Flynn's elbow issue and are looking into Skelton as a backup plan.
McCarthy did not have an update on quarterback Seneca Wallace, who injured his groin in Sunday's loss to the Eagles.
