According to Jeff Darlington of NFL.com, Miami Dolphins wide receiver Brandon Marshall admitted during practice this week for the Pro Bowl, that he’s already reached out Packers quarterback Matt Flynn.
“You’ve got some guys in the draft, but there’s not too many guys out there just walking the streets,” Marshall said. “Matt is available. … We’ve talked. I reached out to him. I get it from Ray Lewis. Around this time of year, players talk to players.”
Marshall also thought Matt Moore had a great year in Miami this past season.
“Obviously, Matt had a great year,” Marshall said. “You don’t want to take anything away from Matt, but I think we really bring in somebody who can compete and make the team better.
“We need someone who is going to grab a hold of our offense, hold everyone accountable and be that leader.”
Even though Moore had a good season in 2011, Marshall knows he needs a franchise quarterback under center next season in Miami and that could be Flynn.
