Matt Flynn rumors: Seahawks would reportedly trade QB

http://www.sbnation.com/nfl/2013/1/2...umors-seahwaks


http://twitter.com/JasonColeYahoo/st...82142142918656

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Matt Flynn's strange season in which he went from presumed starter in Seattle to backup to one of the season's best story lines has ended, and not surprisingly, trade talks have swirled around Flynn ever since the Seahawks' season ended.


Not backing down from the rumors, Seattle has reportedly informed Flynn that he indeed is on the trading block and the Seahawks are willing to part ways with the remaining two years of his contract.

But for the many teams in need of an upgrade at the quarterback position, Seattle's quarterback situation has actually convinced other teams to avoid talking potential trades.
Rookie Russell Wilson notably gave the Seahawks a viable, cheap and exciting new face to the franchise at quarterback, and Flynn never really got a chance to prove his worth after signing a three-year, $19.5-million contract in March 2012.

Now, with the option to either trade or cut Flynn, many teams expect Seattle to simple cut the quarterback, opening up the chase for the former backup to Aaron Rodgers with the Green Bay Packers without any team having to send Seattle anything in return.

Teams who are likely interested in keeping as much of the draft picks and young talent that they currently have while pursuing other options at quarterback would certainly prefer to sign Flynn on the open market as opposed to having to give up anything in return.

Flynn, who originally attracted much of the attention pointed his way during a Week 17 start against the Detroit Lions to close out the 2011 season, could land with a number of teams next season, either as a starter or a trustworthy backup.

Teams interested in Flynn in either a starting or backup role could include the New York Jets, Cleveland Browns and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, which all missed the playoffs in 2012 and could be looking for a change of tone in their offenses.

It seems like everyone says no to seemingly every possible available QB out there. Granted, I want a QB at #1 too, and a later round as well, but what veteran, or young QB with NFL experience do you suggest we go after?? We will need someone with experience on staff at QB. I certianly dont want all Rookies on the roster.

Flynn may be a back up, but his back up work has been pretty good. 10 million times better than what we have now. I dont get the problem with giving this guy a look IF he gets cut. Trade? eh, Id rather see whos on te market, but IF he hits the market? Why not?

I don't think there's any chance in hell that Dorsey would trade for a backup QB. Matt Flynn is not a starting QB. If you think he is, or may be, then you're a moron and you can stop reading here. For those who are not idiots, at least in acknowledging Matt Flynn is not a starting QB, during Dorsey's tenure with GB the Packers had a pattern. They would acquire young, low-cost (i.e. late draft picks or FA acquisitions) backup QBs, develop them, and then let them go - either through trade, FA, or expansion draft.

See: Mark Brunell, Ty Detmer, Doug Pederson, Matt Hasselbeck, Matt Flynn

This leads me to believe that Dorsey will acquire his backup QB(s) later in the draft or through free agency - not through a trade.

And who else could besides speedy guys that can throw. I am skeptical any NFL team will run a read option permanently because of what happened to RG3 and because you need a QB that can roll like Kap/SF etc.

They will make each of these passers into pocket QB's just like Reid did with McNabb.

I'd consider it if they'd take a 5th or a 6th for him. He has to agree to restructure his contract.

This does not mean not drafting a first round QB.

The more the merrier. He is surely an upgrade over all those we have now.

Yup. His idea was to draft them low and sell them high.

Trade them - not trade for them...

They were also able to do this because they already had a franchise QB who never missed a game. They never had to spend a high pick on a QB.

Did you notice I said IF he became available?? As In CUT from Seattle?? Im not saying trade for him. In fact, I say no to that. But if he hit the open market? I wouldnt mind Flynn as a backup in that scenario. Campbell? Eh, but at least you named a QB.

IF Flynn was cut, I wouldn't mind seeing him on the roster. That said, some team is going to be stupid enough to trade for him... just like the chiefs did with Cassel.

The problem with Flynn is that I doubt he is content with being a backup... and if he once again does not get a starting job, how much drama/split is that going to cause in the locker room chemistry? I think Jason Campbell knows by now, that he has had his chance, and being a backup/mentor to a young guy is his role.

I think Campbell would be a better mentor to Geno Smith than a feisty and competitive Flynn.

Then again, competition can be good.

It's a double edge sword.

You may be right. Cleveland comes to mind. Didnt they want him before Seattle took him? or even Miami...
