PLAYERS: Matt Flynn
TEAMS: Seattle Seahawks

According to Peter King of SI.com, if Texas A&M quarterback Ryan Tannehill falls out of the top ten, the Seattle Seahawks would love to take him, even though they signed Matt Flynn as a free agent.

“At Tannehill’s workout,” one source told King, “[coach] Pete Carroll was giggling like a schoolgirl watching him throw. His attitude was like, ‘What are we even doing here? He’ll never be there for us.’ ”

If the Seahawks ended up landing Tannehill, it would give them two potential franchise quarterbacks and they could let Tannehill sit while Flynn tries to prove himself.

2 Comments:
  • It would be good if the Seahwaks Front Office can take 1 QB from the draft. RT would be perfect.
  • From no qb to two potential franchise qb s. sounda good, but more of a dream... hard to beleve. ether way i m a fan

A few things I love about Seattle re-signing Leroy Hill & Matt McCoy

Astros players upset with Mark Appel's promotion

More than most sports, baseball is about “earning your spot.” Players have to work their way through four or five levels of the minors before getting their chance in the big leagues, and some guys wait close to 10 years before they get their shot.
