Yesterday the Seattle Seahawks got their QB, and yes it was non other than Aaron Rodgers back up man, Matt Flynn. He may not have gotten the biggest contract, but at least he is now able to have his own team to lead. Welcome to the NFC West Mr. FLynn.
Flynn’s deal with Seattle is for 3 years, and $26 million, $10 million guaranteed.
Flynn had a visit with the Miami Dolphins as well, but chose the other team….seems to be the trend around the league.
Miami wasn’t able to convince Peyton Manning to come to play for them, and now they have missed out on Matt Flynn. Forgive me for saying this because I know every team plays every game with the goal of a win, but perhaps they wish they had a higher draft pick this year so they could draft a new QB?
With that being said, news was just released moments ago that Peyton Manning is now a Denver Bronco. That brings up the question of where Tim Tebow will end up for next season. Maybe Miami can work something out with him? Alex Smith of the 49′ers is still in question for the Dolphins as well. Needless to say, Miami will figure it out and get their QB, and Tebow will be a great addition to whichever team he end up with. Yes, he has some things he needs to work on, but I’ve supported the kid through it all and with his excellent leadership skills and high character, he’ll find his place.
But back to Flynn, he did play one game for Green Bay this season and put up some excellend stats, and I know Seattle is going to be very happy with their new additon. I think Aaron Rodgers and Seattle Head Coach Pete Carroll completely agree.
Green Bay and Seattle will in fact meet each other this season at Seattle. And according to Vic Ketchman, it will be a great game to watch.
It’ll be a very high profile-game for Packers fans. Whether or not it’s a game of national interest will depend on where it fits on the schedule and how Matt Flynn is performing when the two teams meet.
