Matt Flynn’s Future With The Seahawks

With the emergence of Russell Wilson as the Seattle Seahawks franchise quarterback, does Matt Flynn have a future in the northwest?

Matt Flynn was the most sought after quarterback not named Peyton Manning in last year’s NFL free agency period. The Seahawks signed him to a multi-million dollar deal last year, and then drafted Russell Wilson in the third round. Now, Wilson has taken a firm hold on the starters job.

Where does that leave Flynn?

The Seahawks don’t have to do anything, keeping Flynn as Wilson’s capable backup. But there are several teams around the league that need a quarterback. If Flynn were traded, he would probably bring a third round draft pick this year.

What are some of the teams that could be a possible trading partner for Flynn?

Kansas City just traded for the 49′ers Alex Smith, but could be looking for a quality backup if Smith falters. The New York Jets have Matt Sanchez and Tim Tebow on the roster, but Sanchez struggled last year and Tebow is not rumored to be in the Jets’ plans. Arizona is a possibility, but it’s unlikely the Seahawks would trade with a division rival. The most likely stop for Flynn? Jacksonville. The Jag’s new coach, Gus Bradley, is familiar with Flynn from their time in Seattle, and the Jaguars are quarterback poor.

The NFL free agent period starts on March 12, so it will be interesting to see what happens.
