- Mike Fisher adds that McLeod Bethel-Thompson is also among the players working out for Dallas Tuesday.
Flynn, 29, hadn’t found any reported interest on the open market before the Patriots signed him to a one-year deal back in June.
The Patriots were looking to bolster their depth at quarterback following the four-game suspension handed down to Tom Brady. However, he was released just a few months later, and Brady’s suspension was later dropped.
The Jets signed him to a contract shortly after Geno Smith sustained a broken jaw, but he was among their final roster cuts.
In 2014, Flynn appeared in seven games and threw for 66 yards while completing 50 percent of his passes to go along with no touchdowns and an interception in garbage time for the Packers.
It’s worth mentioning that the Cowboys have Kellen Moore on their practice squad, but it sounds like they would prefer to add a veteran backup behind Weeden.
Ponder, 27, hasn’t come anywhere the type of player the Vikings were hoping he could be when they used the No. 12 overall pick on him back in 2011. The Raiders signed him to a one-year, $2.25 million contract that included a $1.5 million signing bonus back in March.
Last year, Ponder appeared in just two games and threw for 222 yards while completing 50 percent of his passes to go along with no touchdowns and two interceptions.
Johnson, 29, was cut loose by the Bengals not too long ago, and later signed on with the Jets. However, his stay in New York was short lived, as he was among their final roster cuts a few weeks back.
Since then, Johnson has worked out for a few teams, so he’s clearly among the best available quarterback options.
Johnson hasn’t appeared in an NFL game since the 2013 season while playing for the Bengals.
