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.

Somehow, he’s managed to get another chance to start for an NFL team, as the Buffalo Bills have lost both E.J. Manual and Thad Lewis in back-to-back weeks, and they may be ready to sign Flynn:


He can easily beat-out Jeff Tuel for the starting gig, though he may need time to learn the system and not start right away.
