5 Possible Landing Spots for Seahawks' Matt Flynn

The Seattle Seahawks were just two games away from making Super Bowl XLVII. They were supposed to be led to that position by quarterback Matt Flynn, but he was supplanted by rookie quarterback Russell Wilson during training camp.

Now that Wilson has proved himself to be a solid NFL starter, that makes Flynn expendable.

Here is a little bit of a back story to how Flynn got here.

In the last game of the 2011 season—when Flynn was still with the Green Bay Packers—he tossed six touchdowns and cashed out as soon as the offseason came.

The Seahawks liked what they saw and signed Flynn to a three-year deal worth $26 million.

Sounds like a bit of a conundrum for the Seahawks to me.

Flynn’s cap number for 2013 is a robust $7.2 million. With Wilson at the helm, I believe head coach Pete Carroll may be confident enough to trade Flynn for what he wants: a pass-rusher (h/t Eric Williams of the Tacoma News Tribune). 

If the team does decide to part ways with Flynn, here are a few potential landing spots for him.
