The list of free agent quarterbacks does not offer many impressive names, and this is an abnormally weak draft class for signal-callers. This has left several teams to resort to a trade, and Seattle Seahawks backup Matt Flynn has been attracting plenty of attention from around the league.
Flynn led LSU to a national championship in college but fell to the Green Bay Packers in the seventh round. He was impressive when he got on the field, including a six-touchdown performance against the Detroit Lions in 2011.
This led the Seahawks to bring him on board for the 2012 season, but star rookie Russell Wilson beat him out for the starting job.
Here are the teams that are looking to pry him out of Seattle and give him a chance to be a starter.
Blaine Gabbert has shown no signs he will live up to his potential as a first-round pick, while Chad Henne's future in the NFL is likely a career backup.
With more questions than answers at quarterback, the Jacksonville Jaguars are looking at Matt Flynn, according to CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora.
La Canfora notes that while multiple teams are interested in Flynn, Jacksonville is currently the front-runner to pull off a trade with the Seattle Seahawks. The report states that the team's financial flexibility and new head coach Gus Bradley's time with the Seattle Seahawks are other reasons the team is motivated to bring in Flynn.
There is no doubt that the team could use an upgrade under center, and fans in Florida would likely be thrilled to see the Jaguars make a move to improve their passing game.
La Canfora notes that the Raiders have not ruled out releasing Palmer, and even if they keep him, the team has no plans to pay him his current salary.
If the situation with Palmer's contract—which will earn him a $13 million salary this coming season—is not resolved, Oakland will have to search for a new player to lead the offense.
The team has the No. 3 pick in the draft, but as La Canfora's sources reported, the team could end up dealing for Matt Flynn before the NFL teams gather in New York on April 25.
The Buffalo Bills are another team that thought they had their answer at quarterback when they signed Ryan Fitzpatrick to a six-year deal in 2011. But that was clearly not the case, and the team released him this offseason.
La Canfora notes that the Bills, in addition to the Jacksonville Jaguars and Oakland Raiders, have contacted the Seattle Seahawks about Matt Flynn.
Buffalo owns the No. 8 pick in this year's draft, and the team could opt to bring in a quarterback with this selection.
However, drafting a quarterback is always risky, and Flynn is a slightly more reliable option because of his success during his limited opportunities in the NFL.
