Matt Flynn was supposed to be the starting quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks. At least that was the plan when they signed him to a deal that will pay him $5.25 million in 2013. That was before Russell Wilson burst on the scene and led the Seahawks to the playoffs, though, and that price tag - a bargain for a starter - is a little high for a No. 2 quarterback.
So, it's no surprise to hear Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports tweet that the team has told Flynn they are more than willing to trade him somewhere that could give him a chance to start. Unfortunately, a deal seems unlikely to come to fruition, because most potential trade partners understand all too well the financial pickle that Seattle is in here. Why make a deal for Flynn when you can simply wait until the Seahawks are forced to cut him in order to free up some cap space?
Flynn appears to be caught in a game of chicken here, and as the potential landing spots start to dwindle, it may not be long before there is no place for him to go after all.
