Saints To Sign Matt Flynn

As Matt Flynn said on Twitter, it looks like his hunting season is over. The Saints are set to sign the veteran quarterback, per Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports (on Twitter).

Veteran backup Luke McCown is set to undergo season ending back surgery, per Ian Rapoport of (on Twitter), so Flynn will help to provide depth behind starter Drew Brees from here on out. Flynn, 30, spent time in training camp with the Patriots and Jets this past season but was not able to stick on either AFC East roster. The former Packers draft pick has bounced around a bit since leaving Green Bay in 2011, having also spent time with the Seahawks, Raiders and Bills.

The Jets considered Flynn as an outside option with Geno Smith and Ryan Fitzpatrick both nursing injuries earlier this month, but they ultimately they decided against signing him.
