Report: Seahawks will likely listen to trade offers for Matt Flynn

According to Dan Pompei of the National Football Post, the Seattle Seahawks will likely listen to trade offers for quarterback Matt Flynn in the offseason.

One name who could spice up the veteran quarterback market is Matt Flynn. We’ve heard Flynn could be on the move for the second time in as many seasons, this time via the trade market. Given that Russell Wilson has established himself as the clear No. 1 in Seattle, the Seahawks likely will listen to offers. And given there are more teams in need of quarterbacks than there are attractive, available veterans, it is likely John Schneider’s phone will be ringing. In fact, if a team is willing to take on Flynn’s big contract, it wouldn’t be surprising if they could get the former Packer for reasonable trade compensation.

Flynn was brought in to be the Seahawks for this season, but rookie Russell Wilson blew him away in the preseason and there’s no way Wilson is going to lose his starting job any time soon.

    Hopefully Ted Thompson can bring him back to Green Bay. Harrell is Joe Webb without wheels.

    Flynn’s contract is not that big. It’s nowhere near Kevin Kolb money and not that much more than Whitehurst or Tarvaris Jackson were making.

    While his contract is not that big would another team be willing to pay that much money when he already couldn’t win the starting job over a rookie?
