The Seattle Seahawks are in an enviable position; they have the luxury to keep a high priced back up because their starter is making chump change. The fact is the Seahawks can’t give starter Russell Wilson a raise even if they wanted to due to the new CBA rules that prohibit teams redoing rookies’ original contracts until the end of their 3rd year. Back up Matt Flynn probably won’t be going anywhere because quite frankly, the Seahawks do not have a dire need to trade him.

  • i think its kinda hard to trade matt if hes not in the FA mix
    who's going ta know if hes up for trades
    unless hes on the list
    would you trade something with some one if they dont have him
    up for trade !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    your going to beet yo head on the wall a lot
    i like matt but i dont think he fits our ofence no pun
    maybe tebow as decoy if hes cheap also use him as
