Quarterback Carousel In The NFL Still Spinning


Former Green Bay Packers backup quarterback Matt Flynn was again caught in the ever-changing landscape of NFL quarterbacks this offseason. The emergence of rookie QB Russell Wilson in Seattle signaled the end of Flynn’s chances to start for the Seahawks.

Flynn’s talent was undeniable for the Oakland Raiders who traded away a fifth round draft pick and a conditional pick to Seattle to acquire Flynn’s services this week. Yesterday Oakland then traded Carson Palmer to the Arizona Cardinals.

Flynn has never been a consistent starting quarterback in the NFL. After backing up Aaron Rodgers and Russell Wilson he has only two starts in five years. Packers fans remember his last start in the NFL. He threw for 480 yards and six touchdowns in a 45-41 win over Detroit at the end of the 2011 regular season.

Reports indicate Flynn agreed to restructure his contract with Oakland. ESPN reports that his 2013 base salary increased from $5.25 million to $6.5 million -- all of which is now guaranteed. In the second year, Flynn's base salary drops from $6.25 million to $5 million. The contract also has incentives and escalators that can take the value to $15.25 million, the source said.
