When Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers went down with a collarbone injury on Monday Night Football, there was immediately some speculation about who could be signed to boost the team’s performance at quarterback.
Seneca Wallace performed miserably as he stepped in to the starting role, so there is some big room for improvement.
Now, with some time to sort through the available signal-callers, it appears as if the Packers have their eyes set on a certain quarterback, but it won’t be Vince Young, who was with the team during training camp and the preseason.
From Ed Werder of ESPN:
Expecting Packers will sign Matt Flynn if convinced he’s healthy because of past success, system knowledge. Don’t believe VY is considered

Flynn has been the obvious choice since the Buffalo Bills released him earlier this week, so the news comes as no surprise.
If the team signs Flynn, there is a real chance that he could immediately be named the starter for Week 10.
