ESPN analyst John Clayton has reported that he believes the Seahawks will be shopping backup quarterback Matt Flynn this upcoming offseason. After a record-setting performance in Green Bay, Seattle snatched up Flynn on a 3-year, $19.5 million deal. Although Flynn was Seattle's guy coming into the preseason, rookie star Russell Wilson came out of the preseason with the job after stellar play.The Seahawks made a good decision going with Wilson, as he has led his team towards either a second or first place spot in the NFC West depending on how this weekend plays out. Wilson has also made a strong Rookie of the Year push for himself, despite brilliant seasons by first and second overall picks Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III. The only chance Flynn has gotten to play is when the 'Hawks rout a team enough to the point that the starters are pulled. Considering Seattle doesn't want to pay a hefty price for another two years for a backup, they will be trading him.The question is, which team will win Flynn's second sweepstakes in two years?
