Flynn agrees to three-year con­tract with Sea­hawks

The Washington Times Daily - - Sports -

REN­TON, WASH. | The Seat­tle Sea­hawks are hop­ing an­other Green Bay backup turns into their fran­chise quar­ter­back.

The Sea­hawks reached agree­ment Sun­day with Matt Flynn on a three-year deal, bring­ing one of the most wanted — yet un­proven — free agents to the Pa­cific North­west to try and so­lid­ify Seat­tle’s QB po­si­tion.

Flynn has been a ca­reer backup in Green Bay, stuck be­hind All-pro Aaron Rodgers — much the way Matt Has­sel­beck was stuck be­hind Brett Favre be­fore be­ing ac­quired by Seat­tle in 2001.

When given an op­por­tu­nity, Flynn has shined. His best per­for­mance was his last, throw­ing for 480 yards and six touch­downs in a vic­tory over Detroit in Green Bay’s sea­son fi­nale.
