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