Packers will sign Matt Flynn if convinced he is healthy

The Green Bay Packers lost quarterback Aaron Rodgers to injury on Monday Night Football against the Chicago Bears. They played back up Seneca Wallace for the rest of the game, the only other quarterback on the roster. In the mean time, they need to either bring in a quarterback to start or act as a back up until Rodgers returns.

There were reports initially today that the Packers weren’t considering Matt Flynn, who played in Green Bay for four years. His familiarity with the Packers makes him an appealing addition. In his final game for the Packers, Flynn impressed by completing 70 percent of his passes for 480 yards, six touchdowns and one interception.

While many speculated that the Packers could try to acquire Flynn, but there were reports initially that indicated that was unlikely. The Packers reportedly have concerns that Flynn has some arm issues, specifically his elbow.

Now there is a report that if Flynn is healthy, the Packers will sign him. The Packers would be his third team this season.

    he’d be a better fit than Seneca who would lot’s of time before starting to win football games. But Flynn’s elbow issue will make this not happen. The Pack looked pathetic Monday, Seneca or no Seneca. I think the playoffs are out of reach. Aaron may not be back for 6 to 8 weeks which is the timeframe a broken clavicle takes to completely heal.
