"I'm not talking about paying Flynn big money. That'd be dumb," King tweeted, suggesting a three-year deal worth $20 million and guaranteeing $8 million. "Big money comes when he proves self."
That's great in theory, and the Seahawks probably would go for something like that. Two problems they face: (1) Miami might offer more money and (2) Miami has a clear-cut opening at QB, whereas the Hawks still have Tarvaris Jackson.
We have been high on Flynn since before his record-setting game against Detroit, which we broke down in detail. King is similarly impressed. Aaron Rodgers, who knows something about quarterbacking, recently said Flynn will be a top 15 QB in the league.
We put the odds on Miami from the start, and we'll stick with that—even though Flynn obviously would be a very promising QB if the Hawks could get him.
