INDIANAPOLIS -- Former Green Bay Packers quarterback Matt Flynn didn't sign with the Seattle Seahawks last offseason with the expectation he'd be continuing his NFL career as a backup.When Flynn agreed to a three-year, 26 million deal with 10 million guaranteed in March 2012, the Seahawks didn't plan to spend that much money on a second-string quarterback.But that was one negative side effect of Russell Wilson's unexpectedly terrific rookie season in Seattle after the former Wisconsin Badger beat out Flynn for the starting job.Now, Seattle general manager John Schneider has to figure out what to do with Flynn."I don't think anybody in the National Football League is content to be a backup," Schneider said Thursday following his media session at the NFL Scouting Combine. "I wouldn't think he's content."There are several teams in need of a quarterback this offseason. Considering the lack of QB talent in the draft, Flynn could be a perfect fit for teams like the Kansas City Chiefs or Arizona Cardinals."I think that he would obviously want an opportunity to start and is extremely confident in his abilities," Schneider said. "That's why he came to Seattle. He told me that he wanted this to be his team."The Seahawks are never going to be Flynn's team. Not as long as Wilson is healthy."I think we have a great setup," Schneider said. "I feel very blessed that we have two quarterbacks, two starting-caliber guys. What happened last year didn't really have a reflection on what Matt did. It was really what Russell did in terms of just kind of stepping forward and taking charge. From the way he performed in the preseason, it was really hard to argue I think it was like 12 of 18 possessions (that he led scoring drives)."It's not like I've had a chance to sit down with other general managers and some of the people I know around the league to talk about what their situation is. As you guys well know, we're always going to listen to everything and if we're not doing that, we think we're not doing our job. That doesn't necessarily mean we will do something with Matt."Despite making only two NFL starts in five seasons, the 27-year-old Flynn holds the Packers' all-time single-game records for passing yards (480) and touchdown passes (six)."We have a model that includes (keeping) Matt; our primary model," Schneider said.

Good, but not great… Yet
The Seattle Seahawks surprised a whole lot of folks this past season.
From starting a rookie 3rd round QB, to the two comebacks in the playoffs, to the 3 game blowout streak.
Yes they were close last year, and probably should have made it all the way to the Super Bowl, but there were some spots that needed improvement.
Here is my list of the 5 players who...

FANTASY FOOTBALL ANALYSIS
Russell Wilson is part of the new generation of dual-weaponry when it comes to quarterbacks. He can hurt you through the air, but also on the ground. His rookie season proved just that as he went for 3,118 yards and 26 touchdowns through the...
Perhaps no player in league has dominated his position in recent years quite like New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis.

But Revis is apparently a little sick of one...

Seattle Seahawks CB Richard Sherman just completed his second year as a professional football player. It is understandable that a 5th round pick would have a serious chip on his shoulder and want to prove himself to the league. Most players in his situation would also have a sense of humility; knowing that opportunities to make a mark may be scarce.
Well Sherman unlike most, and...
