Matt Flynn: Why Seattle Seahawks Are the Best Landing Spot for Quarterback
Green Bay Packers quarterback Matt Flynn is set to become the second-best quarterback available on the open market on March 15 when the NFL's free agency period starts. While several teams are sure to come after Flynn hard, the Seattle Seahawks are probably the best fit for the 26-year-old.
Right now the Seahawks are pushing to get a visit from Peyton Manning, but it will be difficult as the four-time MVP has set the Arizona Cardinals, Denver Broncos and Miami Dolphins as the leaders for his services. If they can't swing a visit from the 11-time Pro Bowler, Flynn will be their best bet.
While the Cleveland Browns and Miami Dolphins are sure to come calling on Flynn, and he could fit in both places, Seattle would be a great landing spot because of the talent it could surround the LSU product with.
Pete Carroll has done a nice job building a solid defense in the Pacific Northwest, and with even average quarterback play, the Seahawks could easily contend for a playoff spot.
Flynn would have plenty of targets to throw to in Seattle. When healthy, Sidney Rice has proven to be among the NFL's best receivers, while Doug Baldwin, Golden Tate and Mike Williams have all flashed the ability to be reliable pass-catchers. Throw in tight end Zach Miller and you've got an offense full of guys who can make a difference.
Seattle also boasts a solid running game anchored by Marshawn Lynch, who just re-signed with the team for four years and $32 million.
On top of that, the Seahawks have spent their last two first-round picks on offensive linemen, and they inked Robert Gallery last offseason to bolster the roster up front. Flynn will be well-protected.
Seattle has a well-rounded roster on offense, and even with an average quarterback under center, the team is poised to jump up to the next level. Flynn represents an upgrade over current quarterback Tarvaris Jackson, and with him on board the Seahawks, could be dangerous.
