Flynn agrees to three-year contract with Seahawks
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.
