Matt Flynn being shopped....
« on: January 16, 2013, 02:57:30 PM »
Matt Flynn is being shopped around by the Seahawks who are listening to offers.... I suspect he is gone from Seattle but where does he end up?

Arizona?
Kansas City?
Jax?

Possibly Minnesota since Ponder is not really effective there.....

I hope he goes AFC.

Ponder played ok down the stretch he will be the Vikings starting QB in 2013. Also no one will trade for Flynn. Why trade for him when you could have signed him as a FA? No team but seattle showed interest. He is either the backup in Seattle next year or cut.

He won't be cut. He is still guaranteed $2m in 2013 Trade or backup

2023? that's a long contract.  :P

Very interesting... I want to see what happens in ARI. Smith should also be available from San Fran. It could be an interesting off season especially when you consider the lack of QBs in the draft.

The way the head coaching jobs or internal positions have taken shape so far I'd venture to guess the following....

Arizona - Matt Flynn
Kansas City - Vick
Jax - Alex Smith
Philly - Geno Smith

Again, why would teams who passed on him last year want him this year?

Why would Reid want a QB he benched? Not going to happen.

I suppose it's possible that some of those teams thought they had a qb, and now realize those guys suck. If you've recently come to the realization that you don't have a starting qb on your roster, and you don't like anyone in this draft, I could see a guy like Flynn holding some value. I've been hearing talk that Ryan Mallett has also seen his trade value rise as teams become more disillusioned with the incoming crop of rookies.

Depends on what they are offered. By trading him they clear 1.25 million off the books after cap hit. If you take a rookie to backup Wilson you clear maybe $900K after it is said and done. I think the draft pick would have to be good enough to risk trading him and going with a rookie. Otherwise keep him for another year then trade or cut him as the cap hit would be only $2 million in 2014 and the cap savings would be 4.25 million. I think Flynns deal was always really a 2 year deal that had he panned out he would have gotten a long term deal if not they part ways.

Never got a chance in Seattle...gotta say Wilson is something else.

He's worth a low 2nd rounder IMO.

If I needed a QB sure would take a look.

Still think Flynn is a quality starter.

Hopefully he'll get a chance to show it.

No way will he get a second rounder. Packers never tagged him because they knew had no trade value. At best maybe a 4th.

Because they have new management with different ideas. Remember, a number of GM's and coaches were fired.

I get the points for why Flynn may be traded.

But it makes little sense.  He was FREE to sign last year.  And no one bit.  All that happened this season is that rookie QB's came in and made immediate impact.  Luck, RGIII and Wilson made it to the playoffs.  Tannenhill and Weeden showed enough to think that they have futures.

I think it is more likely that other teams will look to the draft for QB's as opposed to trading picks and picking up a larger salary for Flynn.

And le'ts say, for the sake of debate, that he goes to the Jets.  What do the Jets do with Sanchez?  How much money do they eat to let him go?  Again, doesn't make sense.
