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. Mar 8 - 3:01 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.

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.

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.

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.

Matt Flynn completed 21-of-39 passes for 232 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in Green Bay's Week 16, 38-31 loss to the Steelers.

Flynn also took three sacks and lost a critical fumble late in the fourth quarter inside his own 10-yard line to set up Le'Veon Bell's game-winning touchdown plunge. Flynn's interception also went for a touchdown on a pick-six by Cortez Allen. Flynn and the Packers were set up to tie the game late after Micah Hyde's 70-yard kick return. Flynn had one throw to try and tie it as the clock struck zeroes. He bypassed a wide-open Jordy Nelson in the end zone for Jarrett Boykin on the outside. It was thrown high and sailed out of the back of the end zone. The 7-7-1 Packers need the Bears to lose tonight in order to be alive for the division title next week.

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel's Bob McGinn expects Matt Flynn to "certainly" be the Packers' Week 16 starting quarterback after observing the opening portion of Friday's practice.

Just as he has all week, Flynn handled the vast majority of first-team reps. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported early Friday that the Packers don't expect Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) to face Pittsburgh unless "something significantly changes with doctor." The Packers will game plan to pound away with Eddie Lacy in an attempt to hide their quarterback at home on Lambeau Field.
Fri, Dec 20, 2013 12:58:00 PM

Speaking Monday, Packers coach Mike McCarthy said he's "game-planning right now for Matt Flynn" to be the team's Week 16 starter.

It's the same tact the Pack have taken each of the past three weeks. Sunday's miracle victory has ramped the Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) speculation up to a fever pitch, but the Pack are determined not to make an emotional decision. Rodgers will be re-evaluated on Wednesday. There's a real chance that Rodgers will return against the Steelers, but Flynn should be considered the favorite to start until further notice.

Matt Flynn completed 26-of-39 passes for 299 yards, four touchdowns and an interception as the Packers rallied from a 26-3 halftime deficit to stun the Cowboys 37-36 in Week 15.

It was the largest comeback in Packers history. Flynn was a horror show in the first half, missing easy throw after easy throw while looking every bit as terrible as he did in Green Bay's Thanksgiving debacle. He was a different player after halftime, however, guiding the Packers on five consecutive touchdown drives as they handed Dallas its latest inexplicable loss. Buoyed by Eddie Lacy and the running game, Flynn rarely challenged deep, but put his receivers in position to win contested 1-on-1s. Jordy Nelson, Andrew Quarless, James Jones and Jarrett Boykin all made excellent grabs on stick 'em throws. With the Packers still in the playoff hunt, Aaron Rodgers will be given every opportunity to return for Week 16, but that's been the case for weeks now. Flynn should be considered the favorite to start until the Pack publicly announce they've cleared their starter.
Sun, Dec 15, 2013 07:53:00 PM

Matt Flynn was the Packers' first-team quarterback during the opening portion of Friday's practice.

The Packers didn't suddenly elevate Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) onto the first team, which suggests they are still planning to start Flynn. Beat writers also expect Flynn to get the nod. "Judging body language, Rodgers didn't seem thrilled," wrote beat reporter Ty Dunne after observing drills.
Fri, Dec 13, 2013 01:21:00 PM

The Packers are planning on Matt Flynn starting in Week 15, but have left the door open for Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) to return.

"That's the way you have to go about it," coach Mike McCarthy said. "Aaron has hurdles to get over." Rodgers will be re-evaluated on Wednesday. With a division title still within Green Bay's grasp, they're going to give Rodgers every shot at returning, but have made it clear he won't be prematurely cleared. Even against the Cowboys' lowly secondary, Flynn wouldn't be more than a bottom-barrel QB2.
Mon, Dec 9, 2013 04:19:00 PM

Matt Flynn completed 24-of-32 passes for 258 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Packers' Week 14 win over Atlanta.

He also lost a fumble and scrambled six times for 28 yards. Although Flynn's numbers didn't wholly impress, his interception was tipped off of Falcons MLB Paul Worrilow's foot for a fluky 71-yard pick six by WLB Sean Weatherspoon, and the veteran largely managed this game respectably. The victory keeps Green Bay in the playoff hunt, and keeps Aaron Rodgers' (collarbone) availability relevant for Week 15. The Packers face the Cowboys next.
Sun, Dec 8, 2013 04:01:00 PM

Matt Flynn will be the Packers' starting quarterback in Week 14.

Even in one of the most favorable matchups conceivable for a quarterback, Flynn will barely be on the two-QB-league radar Sunday against the Falcons.
