After Kevin Kolb's struggles in Arizona last year, Matt Flynn is going to have a more difficult time convincing a team that he is worth the monetary investment that a starting quarterback would typically command.
The market for Flynn is a bit quieter than anticipated, but some quarterback-needy team is going to give him a chance to be their starter. Here are some of the projected favorites to land Flynn:
This team appears to be the most interested, as they have already had a visit with Flynn, but they may not be interested in taking on the same kind of risk as their division rivals did with Kevin Kolb.
Unsurprisingly, Flynn left Seattle without a deal to make more visits and drive up the price for his services, but don't rule out Flynn in Seattle. Unless the Dolphins or some other team are ready to make a huge investment in him, my bet is that he lands in Seattle when all is said and done.
Once the Seahawks let Flynn out of their grasp, Miami has been put in the driver's seat. If they want Flynn, they can have him—if they are willing to pay. Flynn left Seattle for a reason—he didn't get the kind of money he was looking for, and it will be up to he Dolphins, who are all but eliminated from the Manning race, to decide if they are willing to take on such a risk.
Of course, they do have a bit of an advantage because of the Green Bay connection between Joe Philbin and Flynn, but this is going to come down to money. This is Flynn's only chance to strike a big payday, and he is not going to let it slip because he is more familiar with a coach.
