According to Jeff Darlington of NFL.com, a Miami Dolphins source told him that they only offered Matt Flynn $4 million per year because they weren’t convinced  he’s a franchise quarterback. The Seahawks ended up agreeing to pay Flynn $8 per season over three years.

I believe the $8 million per year that the Seahawks agreed to pay Flynn, wasn’t a bad deal for either side.  Ireland is probably afraid of bringing another quarterback that flames out like Chad Henne did.  The next quarterback that he brings in that flops, will be his last and I’m sure he’s well aware of that.
