Let The Matt Flynn To Miami Rumors Commence

Matt Flynn

With the Miami Dolphins hiring Green Bay Packers offensive coordinator Joe Philbin as their head coach, it seems pretty obvious. The Dolphins, who’ve been unhappy with their quarterback situation for some time, will pursue Packers backup Matt Flynn to be their next starter.

Flynn will be a free agent when the new league year begins and seems like a natural fit for Philbin and the Dolphins.

The Seattle Seahawks, whose general manager is former Packers director of football operations John Schneider, may also be interested, but Miami would seem to have the edge because of Philbin. That being said, Flynn to Miami isn’t a foregone conclusion, according to the Miami Herald.

The Dolphins are believed to have interest in Flynn. But they didn’t hire Philbin with the assumption that they would automatically get Flynn, according to a source.

Miami’s two primary starting quarterbacks in 2011 were Chad Henne and Matt Moore.

Henne threw for 868 yards, four touchdowns and four interceptions in four games. Moore threw for 2,497 yards, 16 touchdowns and nine interceptions in 13 games.

Although both had decent numbers, neither player is considered a long-term option for the Dolphins. That makes Flynn, who has thrived in Philbin and coach Mike McCarthy‘s offense in limited duty, an obvious replacement.

In Flynn’s last start, he threw for 480 yards and six touchdowns, both Packers’ records. We’d be surprised if the quarterback didn’t follow Philbin to Miami.

    Not surprising. So \will Oakland or Miami get Matt Flynn? Whichever team is fortunate to get him, I just hope he gets PAID.

    Good luck, Matty Flynn! We all wish you well, and you will always be in the hearts of Packer Nation.

    Hey Buddy not everyone is a Viking fan cocksucker. I think you are getting confused with all the cock sucking that takes place in your Buddymobile.

    Flynn should hold a press conference where he can announce he is taking his talents to South Beach.

    Great place for him, and a 3rd rounder from Miami is more valuable than most.

    Still have no idea why TT didn’t resign Flynn to a modest extension after the New England game last year. He likely could have got him to buy off an a 3yr extension at $3 mil/yr. Then traded him this offseason for at least a 2nd and 4th.
