Matt Flynn

Matt Flynn is no longer the Green Bay Packers backup quarterback. Flynn signed a three-year deal with the Seattle Seahawks.

The contract is worth $26 million, with $10 million guaranteed.

Seattle was Flynn’s first free agent visit. He met with Miami over the weekend and they were supposed to be the front runner to land his services. However, there were reports the team tried to low ball him.

In Seattle, Flynn will take over for Tarvaris Jackson, although coach Pete Carroll is pretending there will be an open competition.

“We are really excited to bring Matt in here to compete with Tarvaris,” Carroll said.

Jackson threw for 3,091 yards, 14 touchdowns and 13 interceptions last season.
