Report: QB Matt Flynn Agrees to Terms with Packers

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

After scheduling a visit with the Giants, quarterback Matt Flynn has reportedly agreed to terms with the Packers.

After heading into training camp with an unproven backup quarterback for the past two seasons, the Packers insured that the streak does not reach three.

That's because according to a report by NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Matt Flynn has "agreed to terms" with the Packers to return for the 2014 season.

After starting his career in Green Bay, Flynn spent most of the past two years between the Seahawks, Raiders, and Bills. Ineffectiveness and an elbow injury landed Flynn on the street early in the 2013 season. Following a season-ending groin injury to Seneca Wallace, the Packers scooped up their former backup quarterback who would end up starting or playing in five games late that year. During that stretch, Flynn helped secure two wins and a tie, enough to keep the Packers alive in the playoff hunt until Aaron Rodgers returned from a collarbone injury.

While Flynn appears likely to return as Rodgers' primary backup, Mike McCarthy has stressed that Scott Tolzien will compete for the number two job. Additionally, Flynn's return won't necessarily prevent the team from selecting a rookie signal caller in May's draft or signing one shortly thereafter. Regardless of who wins, McCarthy would like to carry three quarterbacks on the final 53-man roster.
