CLEVELAND (92.3 The Fan) - The Cleveland Browns are reportedly in negotiations with quarterback Matt Flynn according to Omar Kelly of the South Florida Sun-Sentinenl.
The Miami Dolphins and Seattle Seahawks have also expressed interest in the coveted Packers’ backup who has started two NFL games.
He’s 1-1 as a starter.
Flynn, who has backed up Aaron Rodgers for four years, completed 31-of-44 passes for 480 yards and six touchdowns with one interception in the Packers’ season finale against Detroit which gave his stock a boost.
In 2010 against the New England Patriots, Flynn completed 24-of-37 passes for 251 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions.
The Browns and Dolphins will reportedly exchange contract offers with his agent this evening according to the report from Kelly.
Browns general manager Tom Heckert downplayed the notion that the Browns would target Flynn, who was a 7th round pick in 2008, last week.
Sports Illustrated’s Don Banks said Tuesday evening that the Browns could be viewed as a last resort if Miami or Seattle don’t pay up.
“Cleveland will be the No. 3 spot for Flynn, but not sure he would go there unless he gets no decent offers from Miami or Seattle,” Banks tweeted.
The Dolphins would likely be Flynn’s preferred destination but Miami is also pursuing Peyton Manning. Dolphins coach Joe Philbin was Fynn’s offensive coordinator in Green Bay.
