Matt Flynn left the Green Bay Packers for big money and a starting job. He won’t be getting the latter.
The Seattle Seahawks named rookie and former Wisconsin Badgers quarterback Russell Wilson their starter over the weekend. While Flynn played pretty well this preseason, Wilson was even better.
Wilson started the Seahawks third preseason game, while Flynn sat out with an elbow injury, and went 13-of-19 for 185 yards and two touchdowns. He also ran for 58 yards.
Flynn and his $19.5 million contract will be the Seahawks No. 2 guy.
Finally, the Packers won’t be picking up Tarvaris Jackson, who was Seattle’s No. 3 quarterback. He was traded to Buffalo over the weekened. You can breathe a sigh of relief.
