Found January 22, 2013 on NFL Trade Rumors:
Jason Cole of Yahoo Sports reports that the Seattle Seahawks have informed QB Matt Flynn that they’re willing to trade him, but “several” teams around the league appear to be under the assumption that they will ultimately release him. This coincides with a report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter that mentioned that Flynn’s market value “isn’t as high as many people think.” Flynn found a hard time finding serious interest on the open market last year and wound up interviewing with only the Dolphins and Seahawks before he ultimately signed three-year, $19.5 million contract with Seattle.

Potential NFL Trade Bait in 2013

Trade Bait: Alex Smith, Matt Flynn? Quarterbacking in the NFL is a daunting task, one that requires a lot of patience, perseverance, and skill. Being the leader and captaining a team is a responsibility left for those who are capable of delivering W’s to their respective franchises. It would appear that in 2012, two efficient quarterbacks were left in the dust, exiled from football’s...

Report: Russell Wilson seeking a New Contract

  A 3rd round draft pick, I think it is safe to say that rookie quarterback Russell Wilson outplayed whatever expectations the Seahawks may have had for him coming into the season. Leading his team to a berth into the NFC divisional playoff round, Wilson played like a seasoned veteran all season long. Thrusting himself directly into a heated Rookie of the Year award competition...

Seattle Seahawks: Top 5 Players in Franchise History

With the drafting of Russell Wilson in the 3rd round of the 2012 NFL Draft, Seahawks fans are excited about the future.

Seattle Seahawks: Three New Year's Resolutions For 2013

In a season where the Seahawks exceeded most every expectation by winning their last five regular season games in a row, going 11-5 and winning a first round playoff game on the road, you might think there aren’t many items on the Seahawks’ “to-do” list before the 2013 season starts.  After all, the Seahawks had the top scoring defense in 2012, one of the league’s best...

Russell Wilson is vehemently denying a report that said he asked the Seattle Seahawks for a new contract.

The Seattle Seahawks & Matt Flynn: What to do?

Backup or Pack-up? At this time last season the Seattle Seahawks were in a much different state-of-mind than they are right now. They were coming off a 7-9 season behind the elite quarterbacking skills of Tavaris Jackson (sarcasm hopefully noted) that was more up-and-down than a roller coaster ride at Disneyland. That being their second consecutive 7-9 season (at least in the regular...
