Packers HC Mike McCarthy told reporters on Tuesday that he wants the team to re-sign backup QB Matt Flynn.
- McCarthy mentioned that he has “great admiration and respect” for Flynn, per Mike Vandermause.
There hasn’t any interest in Flynn up to this point, so returning to Green Bay could be his only option, and even that is not a guarantee with Scott Tolzien under contract.
Flynn, 28, left Green Bay for Seattle back in 2012 when he signed a $20.5 million contract that included $9 million guaranteed with the Seahawks. He was later traded to the Raiders and finally ended up back in Green Bay last year.
Flynn stepped in for Aaron Rodgers, who suffered a broken collarbone and was able to keep them in the playoff hunt, despite some poor efforts.
Last year, Flynn completed 62 percent of his passes for 1,146 yards, seven touchdowns and four interceptions.
