The Green Bay Packers are signing free agent quarterback Matt Flynn, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Flynn’s signing comes following a game in which Seneca Wallace was forced to leave with a groin injury and Scott Tolzien was unsuccessful in a Week 10 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. It’s a move to give the Packers some much-needed depth at the position following an injury sustained by Aaron Rodgers.
Green Bay will be Flynn’s fourth destination since leaving the team as a free agent in 2011. He was signed by the Seattle Seahawks with hopes he could be a franchise quarterback, a belief the Oakland Raiders also held when they traded for the veteran quarterback earlier this year.
The Raiders released Flynn when he was passed on the depth chart by third-year quarterback Terrelle Pryor. Flynn’s last stop was Buffalo, where he remained on the roster for three weeks as a depth option when E.J. Manuel was lost to injury.
All together an impressive play, but I should note here that Kuechly was burned for a Ryan-to-Gonzalez touchdown on a very similar play later in the half. The second-year linebacker is, of course, still a young player, and deep middle pass coverage is not exactly what he was known for coming out. I’d Mls Cheap Jerseys say he’s probably better facing the action and running downhill — but that’s not to say that he Lebron James Cheap Jerseys won’t develop into a great coverage linebacker in the mold of Brian Urlacher. You can see the functional skills necessary to do so above.
Speaking of facing the action, the play above illustrates the style that the Panthers seem to be playing over the past couple of weeks, and it involves some deep defenders looking in toward the quarterback and breaking forward on the ball — this as opposed to running in tight trailing coverage or single high-type looks.
