Packers Want Matt Flynn Back

We’re not really sure why they haven’t done anything about it, but the Green Bay Packers apparently want Matt Flynn back as their backup quarterback.

Or at least coach Mike McCarthy does.

We say we’re not sure why they haven’t done anything because there’s obviously not a lot of demand for Flynn’s services on the open market.

Of course, that probably means he’s not high on the Packers’ priority list either. They can probably sit around for another month and still sign Flynn at some bargain-basement rate.

Flynn played well enough for the Packers last season, throwing for 1,392 yards, eight touchdowns and five interceptions. He hasn’t played well anywhere else since he originally left the Packers after the 2011 season, though. Flynn washed out in Seattle, Oakland and Buffalo before landing back in Green Bay.

That might lead a logical person to believe he can only be successful in the Packers’ system.

If Flynn does indeed get re-signed, he’ll likely have to beat out the stronger-armed Scott Tolzien for the backup job. The Packers have rarely kept three quarterbacks on the active roster under McCarthy.

    Flynn is a last resort, just as he was in 2013. The Packers can and NEED to do better in ’14. Remember 2012 when many insisted Flynn would get the franchise tag in GB and then be magically traded.

    Matt Flynn saved the Packers season last year. He deserves to be on the roster.

    Pay that man, and keep 3 QBs. Wise up!
