Matt Flynn: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Flynn (hamstring) signed with the Jets on Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Flynn entered training camp with the Patriots, but was unable to pass a physical due to an unknown ailment, resulting in his release. After the Jets put him through a physical and workout Friday, the organization has opted to add the veteran to a QB group that will be sans Geno Smith (jaw) for at least the first four games of the regular season. Working beside Ryan Fitzpatrick and 2015 fourth-round pick Bryce Petty, Flynn will have three preseason contests to make his mark, starting Friday versus the Falcons.

Flynn signed with the Patriots in June, but barely practiced with the team after landing on their non-football injury list ahead of training camp. Now, the veteran will return to the free-agent market in search of another backup quarterback job.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The prospect of Tom Brady's four-game suspension likely spurred the move, no matter the Patriots' confidence in a reduction of the ban. Furthermore, Jimmy Garoppolo may require further study before he's thrown into the fire, meaning Flynn is a wild-card heading into training camp. In 46 career appearances (six starts) with the Packers, Flynn completed 61.1 percent off his passes (192-of-314) for 2,227 yards and 16 touchdowns versus 10 interceptions.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Flynn was released by both the Raiders and the Bills in less than a month-long span last season before he ultimately returned for a second stint in Green Bay to provide emergency help at quarterback as Aaron Rodgers was sidelined with a collarbone injury. Given his familiarity with the Packers' offense, Flynn ushered the team through a trying back end of the season, throwing for 1,146 yards, seven touchdowns, and four interceptions in five games. To avoid another suddenly desperate situation, the Packers re-signed Flynn this offseason to stand on-call should a second-stringer need to be played.

2013

The Raiders are in some trouble. Flynn figures to be their opening day starter, but Oakland really did nothing to help its new quarterback. The Raiders still have Darren McFadden in the backfield, but they're weak on the outside. Denarius Moore is their top wide receiver, and there's a good chance you've never heard of any of their tight ends. One thing Flynn has going for him is the Raiders are likely to be losing so often that he could throw 600 passes, assuming he doesn't get hurt. The return of diminutive playmaker Jacoby Ford could also help.

2012

Flynn’s ceiling-to-floor gap is probably exceeded only by that of Jake Locker. He was impressive as a backup in Green Bay the last two years, throwing for 951 yards (8.3 YPA), nine touchdowns and four interceptions while completing 63.5 percent of his passes, but he’ll be a big risk until he proves he wasn’t a product of the Green Bay system. The Seattle offensive line is young and struggled with injuries last year, and Flynn’s top wideout (Sidney Rice) has been active for just 15 games the last two seasons. Essentially, Flynn passed the baseline test of playing well in a short sample in an ideal offensive environment for quarterbacks. It remains to be seen what he’ll do as the team’s likely starter – at press time Tarvaris Jackson isn’t totally out of the running – in a below average one.

2011

When you are the backup to arguably the best quarterback in football, your fantasy expectations are extremely low. With Aaron Rodgers ahead of Flynn on the Packers' depth chart, not much is expected of him. With that being said, Rodgers has a history of concussions, so there is always a chance that Flynn could see some action.

2010

Flynn will be the primary back up to Aaron Rodgers.

2009

As a seventh-round pick last year, Flynn surprised plenty of onlookers by edging out the more highly touted Brian Brohm, Green Bay's second-round selection, for the backup job behind Aaron Rodgers. The two will engage in a similar competition in training camp this season.

2008

Flynn has a chance to make the team as a third string QB, but may end up on the practice squad.
