Matt Flynn‘s career path has been an absolute whirlwind. Not only has Flynn spent time with three different NFL teams in the last three years, he’s also currently a free agent. Now this is a rather shocking fall from grace considering Flynn signed a contract worth over $10 million less than two years ago. Flynn can credit that expensive contract from the Seattle Seahawks to one six-touchdown game with the Green Bay Packers.
Nevertheless, Flynn’s days in Seattle are long gone and opportunities with the Oakland Raiders and Buffalo Bills have also slipped through Flynn’s fingers as well. Flynn’s unemployment coupled with a reported broken left collarbone for Packers starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers has stirred up rumors of a possible reunion of sorts in Green Bay. Naturally, the folks in Green Bay would much rather see a semi-established passer like Flynn get playing time than to see the Packers stick with the unimpressive Seneca Wallace.
Considering the Packers currently don’t have a third quarterback on their roster; a Flynn signing would make some sense as he’s familiar with the system and could step in immediately. Besides, it’s become obvious that Flynn doesn’t belong anywhere else as every other NFL team he’s signed for has wound up released him sooner or later.
