If there’s anything to take away from the 2012 season for the Jacksonville Jaguars–it’s they are in desperate need of help at the quarterback position heading into next season. The team had high expectations for Blaine Gabbert when they selected him in the first round of the 2011 NFL Draft, but he’s done nothing but struggle over his first two seasons in the league.
Now, it appears the Jaguars may be targeting another quarterback to bring on board for next season–Matt Flynn of the Seattle Seahawks.
With the way things played out last season, it’s clear the Seahawks are focused on building the franchise around Russell Wilson and if Flynn wants any chance of starting–he’ll have to accept the fact that he’s going to need to be traded to a different team. The whole reason why Flynn joined Seattle in the first place was so he could be a starter since he knew that would never happen with the Green Bay Packers, but now joining a team like Jacksonville may be his best option.
Apparently, the Jaguars are one of three teams expressing interest in possibly acquiring Flynn–so it should be interesting to see how these next few weeks play out before the 2013 NFL Draft gets under way. Flynn has proven he has what it takes to be an effective quarterback and if anything–he would certainly be an upgrade for the Jaguars compared to what they have now in Gabbert.
