Update: Giants Are Not Working Out Free Agent QB Matt Flynn Tuesday



Jordan Raanan of NJ.com reports that the Giants are not working out free agent QB Matt Flynn Tuesday, despite recent reports.

New York is reportedly working out free agent QB Josh Freeman, so we’ll have to see if they eventually bring Flynn in our sign Freeman to contract in the near future.


Kimberly Jones reports that the Giants will also bring in free agent QB Matt Flynn for a workout on Tuesday.

This comes shortly after Adam Caplan reported that Josh Freeman was working for the Giants on Tuesday.

  • According to Jones, both players will arrive into New York Monday.
  • Caplan adds that the Giants would like to sign a veteran quarterback before training camp.

The Giants hired Packers’ quarterbacks coach Ben McAdoo as their new offensive coordinator, so there are some obvious ties to Flynn.

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.


Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News reports that the Giants have also reached out to free agent QB Matt Flynn.

  • Reports from earlier in the day mentioned that the Giants were expected to host free agent QB Josh Freeman next week.

Since free agency got underway almost a month ago, Flynn has found no reported interest outside of the Packers who have said that they would like to bring him back next season.
