NFL Rumors: Will the Seattle Seahawks Part Ways With Matt Flynn This Offseason?

Everybody knew the Seattle Seahawks would enter the 2012 season as one of the teams to keep an eye on when it came to sleeper teams making the playoffs, thanks to a young up-and-coming defense, but nobody could have expected Russell Wilson to emerge as the starter the way he did in training camp and lead this team to the Divisional Round of the playoffs. Now, the main question everybody wants to know from an NFL rumors standpoint–what will the team do with Matt Flynn during the off-season?

Flynn was signed by the team prior to the 2012 season to a three-year, $26 million deal with the anticipation that he would become the team’s starting quarterback, but he lost the job to Wilson in training camp–making it seem highly unlikely he’ll be able to take over the starting job anytime soon. One of the main reasons why Flynn left the Green Bay Packers to play for Seattle was due to the fact he wanted to start for a team, but now he’s in a similar situation as his former team, where he’s nothing more than a backup. 

There are plenty of teams that could use a quarterback like Flynn, but the Seahawks have to decide what to do with their backup quarterback. It may be difficult to trade him at this point, but the Seahawks have some serious thinking to do over the off-season when it comes to deciding on what to do with their once potential quarterback.

If they end up cutting him–than the whole deal with Flynn will end up becoming a complete waste since Wilson started all of last season.
