After the Seattle Seahawks signed Matt Flynn over the offseason, many thought he would immediately come in and claim the starting spot.
Except that’s not the way Pete Carroll goes about it.
There was a three-man competition for the starting quarterback spot during OTAs featuring Flynn, incumbent Tarvaris Jackson and rookie Russell Wilson.
After the Hawks rewarded Flynn with a three-year, $26 million contract, it would make sense that he would have a leg up on the other two.
However, Carroll has maintained that the competition is open, and there is no indication that any of the three have an advantage over the other two.
