Found March 23, 2013 on Pro Football Zone:
At the end of the 2012 season, the Seattle Seahawks were very honest and admitted that they’re open to trading quarterback Matt Flynn. Danny O’Neil of The Seattle Times did a great job of breaking down why Flynn likely’ isn’t going anywhere right now. Matt Hasselbeck came on the market Monday, released after two seasons with the Tennessee Titans, and the fact he ended up as Indianapolis’ backup paints a pretty strong indication of where Matt Flynn will be next season: in Seattle. Hasselbeck was available, no strings attached, and he wound up taking a job as Andrew Luck’s backup with the Colts for the not-so-insignificant sum of $8 million over two years. Hasselbeck will make $5 million in 2013 alone, which is significant because that’s about what Flynn is scheduled to earn this season on the contract he signed with Seattle last year. The Seahawks have also indicated that they’re not pressed to get rid of Flynn.   They won’t have a problem with keeping him on the roster as Russell Wilson’s back up in 2013. Because Seattle is not going to give away Flynn. The Seahawks made that clear in February when first general manager John Schneider and then coach Pete Carroll were clear about their satisfaction with the current pair of quarterbacks. No one ruled out a trade, but indicated the preference was to keep Flynn even though Wilson was clearly established as the starter. “We feel real blessed to have two quarterbacks,” Schneider reiterated last week after Percy Harvin was introduced as a Seahawk.     Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; script.src = 'http://widget.crowdignite.com/widgets/27484?_ci_wid=_CI_widget_'+_CI.counter; script.async = true; ref.parentNode.insertBefore(script, ref); })();

Normally I would never discuss this with anyone, ever,...
