Jets released QB Matt Flynn.

Flynn was just a camp arm. The Jets are going with Ryan Fitzpatrick, Geno Smith and Bryce Petty at quarterback. Flynn will get calls any time a team needs a veteran seat warmer.

Matt Flynn (hamstring) is expected to practice in 7-10 days.

Flynn is still recovering from the hamstring issue that sidelined him at Patriots camp. He'll back up Ryan Fitzpatrick when healthy. Flynn's roster spot should only be in danger when Geno Smith returns.

Jets signed QB Matt Flynn to a one-year contract.

Flynn will serve as a warm body behind Ryan Fitzpatrick as the Jets wait on Geno Smith (jaw) to get healthy. With fourth-rounder Bryce Petty nowhere near ready to play if Fitzpatrick gets hurt, Flynn will likely remain on the 53-man roster for however long Smith is sidelined.

Free agent QB Matt Flynn had a physical with the Jets on Friday.

Flynn spent the previous two months with the Patriots but was released on Monday because he couldn't play in the preseason opener due to a pulled hamstring. In Flynn, the Jets could possibly gain some intel about the Patriots. He'd also be another warm body while Geno Smith recovers from his broken jaw.

Patriots released QB Matt Flynn.

Flynn pulled his hamstring before camp and it never healed. The Patriots ran out of time to wait, as they have a preseason game Thursday and need arms. They'll sign a free agent to back up Tom Brady and Jimmy Garoppolo soon.
Mon, Aug 10, 2015 08:05:00 AM

Patriots signed QB Matt Flynn.

He takes the roster spot of QB Garrett Gilbert, who was waived in a corresponding move. The Patriots wanted a veteran to pair with Jimmy Garoppolo as Tom Brady continues to stare down a four-game suspension to open the season. Flynn will likely be a goner once Brady is back from his Deflategate ban.

Free agent QB Matt Flynn worked out for the Patriots Wednesday.

The Patriots are bracing for Tom Brady's suspension. Right now, only Garrett Gilbert sits behind interim starter Jimmy Garoppolo. So they're kicking the tires on Flynn, who fell behind Scott Tolzien on Green Bay's depth chart.
Thu, Jun 11, 2015 12:37:00 PM

The Packers will not re-sign Matt Flynn.

For now, they'll go with Scott Tolzien as Aaron Rodgers' backup, though competition will likely be added in the draft. Dreadful everywhere he's been but Green Bay — and oftentimes in Green Bay — Flynn won't be assured of finding a No. 2 job.
Sun, Mar 8, 2015 03:01:00 PM

Matt Flynn is in danger of losing the Packers' No. 2 quarterback job to Scott Tolzien.

Keep in mind Flynn is a player still-Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie traded for last offseason. "I think it's up in the air right now," said Packers QBs coach Alex Van Pelt of the Flynn-Tolzien battle. In the event of an Aaron Rodgers injury, the Packers would implement an Eddie Lacy-dominated offense regardless of the backup QB job winner. It's what they did when Rodgers went down last year.
Thu, Aug 14, 2014 10:12:00 AM

Packers re-signed QB Matt Flynn.

And we now know why Flynn didn't make his previously reported visit to work out for the Giants on Tuesday. Flynn made five appearances (four starts) last season and completed 61.4 percent of his passes for 1,146 yards, seven touchdowns, and four interceptions. He also took a whopping 17 sacks and lost four fumbles. Flynn will have a leg up on Scott Tolzien for No. 2 duties.

Updating a previous item, free agent QB Matt Flynn will not work out for the Giants on Tuesday.

It was previously reported that Flynn was going to join fellow free agent Josh Freeman in the Meadowlands on Tuesday, but Flynn is not taking part for unknown reasons. There may have never been a visit scheduled in the first place. Flynn's best bet is to return to Green Bay on a minimum deal.
Tue, Apr 15, 2014 01:46:00 PM

Free agent QB Matt Flynn is expected to work out for the Giants Tuesday.

Flynn and fellow free agent Josh Freeman are both getting a look from the G-Men this week. One will likely be signed as an offseason/camp arm, especially in light of Eli Manning's ankle surgery. They'd compete with Curtis Painter for a roster spot behind developmental option Ryan Nassib.
Mon, Apr 14, 2014 12:37:00 PM

The Giants have "reached out" to free agent QB Matt Flynn.

After Eli Manning underwent ankle surgery on Thursday, the Giants are heating up their efforts to bring in a veteran quarterback to handle offseason reps. Josh Freeman will reportedly work out for the Giants next week. The Packers want to re-sign Flynn, but he's likely looking for more money than they'd offer.
Fri, Apr 11, 2014 12:16:00 PM

Coach Mike McCarthy said he'd like to re-sign free agent QB Matt Flynn.

Ideally, McCarthy wants to carry both Scott Tolzien and Flynn behind Aaron Rodgers. But the Packers haven't come out of camp with three signal callers on the roster since 2008 and there's no real sense of urgency. Although the backup quarterback market has been churning, Flynn has predictably attracted zero known interest.
