The Seattle Seahawks signed former Green Bay Packers back up quarterback Matt Flynn last year in free agency, but they are already actively shopping the signal-caller after the surprise emergence of rookie quarterback Russell Wilson. Initially, the market for Flynn appeared to by dry, but now things are beginning to heat up according to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports.

Flynn is reportedly being pursued by the Jacksonville Jaguars, Oakland Raiders and Buffalo Bills. There is a chance that a deal could materialize before the 2013 NFL Draft.

In his report, La Canfora writes that the Jaguars are the most likely destination.

A big part of the connection between the Jaguars and Flynn is the team’s new head coach, Gus Bradley, who is familiar with Flynn because of their time together with the Seattle Seahawks. Bradley was a defensive coordinator, but he was able to get a good look at Flynn every day when he went up against his unit in practice.

For the Bills, they have Tarvaris Jackson under contract and then very little help after that, while the Raiders could be releasing Carson Palmer in the near future.

If you were a fan of one of the three teams in the mix for Flynn, would you want your team to pull off a trade and bring him in for a shot to compete for the starting gig? Let us here your thoughts in the comments section.
