NFL Injury Report:
Seattle Seahawks general manager John Schneider said the
team is will to listen to offers for backup quarterback Matt Flynn, according
to Marc Sessler of NFL.com.
Schneider told reporters that he’s “going to listen to
everything,” including potential deals for Flynn. Seattle signed the former
Green Bay Packers reserve last offseason as a potential starter for the club.
However, Flynn was passed on the depth chart by rookie Russell Wilson, who has
cemented his position as the Seahawks’ quarterback of the future.
Flynn is set to make $5.25 million in 2013. While this is a
reasonable figure for a potential starting quarterback, Flynn is guaranteed to
be a backup unless Wilson gets hurt. For this reason, Seattle could look to
recoup some of his value and get the salary off its books by trading him.
If a trade doesn’t take place, the Seahawks could also elect
to cut ties with Flynn rather than pay him that sort of money as a backup.
However, Schneider indicates that Seattle is currently content carrying both
quarterbacks on its roster so as to have a capable No. 2 behind Wilson, who’s
running-style increases his risk of injury.

General manager John Schneider has the right mindset, unlike the San Francisco 49ers who are trying to milk a situation that could backfire on them. Having a quarterback in the fold like backup Matt Flynn, who really still is an unknown entity, allows them to have a capable back up who hasn’t started for them. The 49ers have a veteran who they won’t release, and if they want...
