Quarterback Matt Flynn is returning to the Green Bay Packers.
According to NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport, Flynn will sign with the Packers.
The Packers are down to their third string quarterback.
Starter Aaron Rodgers went down with a collarbone injury in last week’s loss to the Chicago Bears and is still “a couple of weeks away.” The Packers started Seneca Wallace in Sunday’s loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, but he went down with a groin injury. Before the injury, Wallace was five-of-five for 25 yards. Wallace was replaced by Scott Tolzien. Tolzien completed 24-of-39 passes for 280 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions.
Tolzien will start Sunday’s game against the New York Giants.
Flynn spent the first four years of his career with the Packers and had two memorable starts. In 2010, Flynn completed 24-of-37 passes for 251 yards with three touchdowns and an interception in a 31-27 loss to the Patriots. In 2011, he went 31-of-44 for 480 yards with six touchdowns and one interception in a 45-41 victory over the Detroit Lions.
In 2012, Flynn signed with the Seahawks but was beat out by Russell Wilson. A year later, he was dealt to the Oakland Raiders. He was cut on October 7 and signed with the Buffalo Bills a week later.
Flynn was released by the Bills last week.
