NFL Rumors: Mike McCarthy wants Green Bay Packers to keep Matt Flynn

With Aaron Rogers out with an injury, Matt Flynn exploded onto the scene during his third year when he nearly led the Green Bay Packers to a victory over the New England Patriots, throwing for 251 yards and three touchdowns.

A year later with the Packers assured of home field advantage, Flynn threw six touchdowns against the Detroit Lions.

He signed a big deal with the Seattle Seahawks in the offseason, but was beaten out by then rookie Russell Wilson. After a failed stint with the Oakland Raiders, Flynn returned to the Packers last season.

According to Mike Vandermause of The Green Bay Press-Gazette, Packers’ head coach Mike McCarthy would like the Packers to re-sign Flynn.


Flynn was forced into action in five games with the Packers last season after they lost Rogers to another injury when he broke his collarbone.

Flynn completed 102 of 166 passes for 1,146 yards with seven touchdowns and four interceptions for the Packers last season.
