Seattle Seahawks quarterback Matt Flynn made an appearance on 710 ESPN Radio in Seattle with Kevin Calabro and Jim Moore, to discuss his future with the Seahawks.
Flynn confirmed that no one has promised him that he’ll be the Seahawks starting quarterback heading into next season.
“No, not at all. He promised me that there was gonna be a good competition and I think one thing I respect about him is that he preaches competition and I think it brings the best out of everybody,” said Flynn. “But in my visit up there I got to know the coaches — I didn’t really know any of them. I knew John Schneider the GM, but I didn’t really know anybody else. Got to know them, felt really comfortable, loved the vibe over there. It feels like a really great family environment. And after doing some soul searching after I went to Miami, it just kind of felt like it was the best fit for me. I have a chance to go up there and be successful, and a great place so I’m really excited to be a Seahawk.”
Flynn indicated that he chose the Seahawks over the Dolphins because he feels like they’re on the rise.
“I am close with Joe, I think a lot of him. I think he’s gonna do a great job in Miami. I think he’s gonna be a really successful head coach in the league. So when it came down to it, I just felt like it was a better situation for me — I felt it’s a program that’s really on the rise, doing the right thing, is being led by the right type of people. And you look at it, I think it’s the second youngest team in the NFL, and so there’s a lot of talent everywhere and I think it’s a team that in the very near future has a chance to be special.”
Flynn certainly made the right choice by going with the Seahawks, rather than the Dolphins who seem like they headed in the wrong direction as a franchise.Follow PFZ on Twitter @ProFootballZone
