Per ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Seattle Seahawks and former Green Bay Packers quarterback Matt Flynn have agreed to a three-year deal with $10 million in guarantees.
Flynn is the second high profile backup the Seahawks have acquired in the last couple of years, specifically speaking of when they traded for San Diego’s Charlie Whitehurst a couple of years ago.
Now, it looks like the Seahawks are going to give Flynn a chance to be their starting quarterback instead of Tarvaris Jackson or Ryan Tannehill, but I think it is still reasonable to assume the Seahawks could draft a quarterback somewhat early, just not in the first round.
This game of quarterback musical chairs will hopefully involve Peyton Manning signing soon as well. One of the potential domino effects here was that Seattle planned to host San Francsico quarterback Alex Smith, a team that is also reportedly courting Manning.
Smith also has a visit planned with the Dolphins, whom Flynn was also considering.
