The Jacksonville Jaguars have been one of the teams tied to
Seattle Seahawks backup quarterback Matt Flynn, but they have “ultimately
decided not to pursue a trade” for the reserve, according to Ryan O’Halloran of
The Florida Times-Union.
The Jaguars had previously been termed as the most likely
destination for Flynn. Jacksonville was said to be seeking competition for
Blaine Gabbert, even with the presence of veteran Chad Henne.
However, after doing their “due diligence” on Flynn, the
Jaguars have decided not to pursue the quarterback. O’Halloran said the idea of
adding Flynn made sense, but it would have also carried questions considering
they would have had to trade valuable draft picks to acquire the Seahawks’
backup. Flynn, 28, also has less playing experience in the NFL than Gabbert and
After signing a three-year, $19.5 million contract with the
Seahawks prior to the 2012 season, Flynn is owed $7.25 million and $8.25
million in 2013 and ’14.
