APRIL 24: Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun provides the details of Flynn’s new deal with the Packers, tweeting that the base value is about $968K. That includes a $730K base salary, a $75K signing bonus, a $25K workout bonus, and up to about $138K in per-game active roster bonuses. Flynn can also earn another $100K via incentives.
APRIL 22: The Packers have officially announced their new deal with Flynn, tweets Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com.
APRIL 15: The Packers have reached an agreement to re-sign free agent quarterback Matt Flynn, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com (via Twitter). We heard earlier this afternoon that Flynn’s visit with the Giants was no longer on the docket, and I speculated that it could be because the signal-caller was close to signing with another team. It appears that was the case, as the Packers didn’t let him get away.
Flynn, 28, spent his first four NFL seasons in Green Bay before joining the Seahawks, Bills, and Raiders over the last two years. Flynn rejoined the Packers last season and was effective down the stretch in place of the injured Aaron Rodgers, completing 61.4% of his passes for 1,146 yards, seven touchdowns, and four interceptions in five games (four starts).
With Flynn back in the fold, the Packers will retain three of the four quarterbacks that started games for the club last season. Flynn and Scott Tolzien figure to jockey for the No. 2 spot behind Rodgers, while Seneca Wallace remains a free agent, unlikely to return to Green Bay.
