Free agent quarterback Matt Flynn has manged to dupe two different teams into giving him luxurious contracts since leaving the Green Bay Packers in 2012. This, after the Packers drafted him in the sixth round out of LSU in 2008, and just two quality starts in four seasons netted Flynn a three-year deal with the Seattle Seahawks worth $20.5 million, with $9 million guaranteed.
After losing out on the starting job to Russel Wilson, he was traded to the Oakland Raiders, who paid Flynn more than $6.5 million this season and released him after one losing start. Now, sitting on the market, it would seem like a natural fit to go back to green Bay, where the Packers aren’t exactly stacked at QB behind Aaron Rodgers, but still don’plan on signing Flynn, or anyone else for that matter:
“Personally, I’m very happy with the quarterback room, the way it looks, the people in it,” Head coach Mike McCarthy said. “Obviously Matt was a Packer, very fond of Matt and his time here. As far as any roster moves and things like that, I really don’t have any comment, but I do like Seneca Wallace, I like what he’s done since he’s been here, I feel very good about our quarterback room.”
