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.

I'd guess 4th round unless his stock shoots up after the Combine. Of course, Seattle has shown they'll reach for players they want.

Exactly what I was getting at. I think Pete is going to take him in the 2nd round.

Flynn has such a small sample size of NFL play that Seattle way overpaid for him.
Flynn is a much larger unknown than Matt Cassel was.

NO to FLYNN.

It will be a late 2nd and all but that seems high for Scott.

I'd give the comp pick we get for Carr to trade for Flynn if he agrees to restructure his contract. He's a backup QB--and we need one. Cassel and Quinn (not to mention Stanzi) don't even cut that mustard.

Edit: This, of course, is assuming that he isn't cut outright.

First....Hell no.

No way in hell I'd be okay with trading any picks.

Second, comp picks can not be traded per NFL rules.

It was reported on Rotoworld that teams around the league don't think that the Seahawks have a chance in hell of trading them. They're waiting around for them to cut him because they don't want to pay Flynn $5 million to be a backup.

I did not know that. Thanks for the info.

I'd still give a 4th for him then, but that is just me. We're going to have to use two draft picks on QBs anyway if we get rid of both Cassel and Quinn. I want both of those guys off the team.

I'd rather use the 4th on a QB in the draft. Much, much more upside...

That makes a lot of sense.

id rather use the 4th on drafting a starter at one of the many position holes on this crap team.

we will already be taking a QB in the first, no need for one in the 4th when we can still get a starter there.

You can't trade comp picks.
