Report: Bills Sign QB Matt Flynn

Update:

The Buffalo Bills have announced that they have in fact signed QB Matt Flynn and placed S Jonathan Meeks on injured reserve-designated to return.

Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports that the Bills are “likely” to sign former Raiders QB Matt Flynn following his workout with the team on Monday.

  • Ian Rapoport reports that the Bills were just doing their due diligence by bringing Flynn in, but “sounds like it went really well, and he’ll be a member of the Bills soon.”

Buffalo has already lost first-round pick E.J. Manuel for an extended period of time and although they were in the running for Josh Freeman, they were forced to start Thad Lewis against the Bengals on Sunday.

Thad Lewis, to his credit, actually played pretty well against a solid defensive unit. Unfortunately, he suffered a sprained foot during Sunday’s game and could be questionable moving forward. Lewis told reporters following the game that the “X-rays looked good.”

Flynn will likely join undrafted rookie Jeff Tuel and Lewis as the Bills current group of quarterbacks until Manuel is able to return from his knee injury.

Mike Rodak of ESPN.com reports that the free agent QB Matt Flynn is in Buffalo working out for the Bills.

  • Rodak mentions that Lewis was seen sporting a walking boot on his injured foot.

We’ll have more on Flynn and Lewis as the news is available.

Ed Werder of ESPN is getting the impression that the Packers have concerns about QB Matt Flynn‘s elbow.

  • Werder seems to think that the Packers would have interest in Flynn if he were healthy.

Yesterday, HC Mike McCarthy was asked about the idea of possibly bringing Flynn back, but he sounds comfortable with Seneca Wallace as Aaron Rodgers backup

“Personally, I’m very happy with the quarterback room, the way it looks, the people in it,” McCarthy said, via ESPN.com. “I do like Seneca Wallace. I like what he’s done since he’s been here.”

Flynn could still find interest from some team now that injuries at quarterback appear to be piling up. He will most likely need to prove that his elbow isn’t an issue before signing on with a new team.

Since departing Green Bay for Seattle a few years ago, Flynn has made $14.5 million to start one game over the past two seasons.
