Green Bay Packers sign QB Matt Flynn to back-up Scott Tolzien

After seeing three quarterbacks throw passes in the previous two weeks, the Green Bay Packers came to terms with free agent quarterback Matt Flynn after Flynn worked out for the team on Monday, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Matt FlynnFlynn will rejoin the Packers, the team which drafted him in the seventh round in 2008 out of LSU. After a breakout performance on Jan. 1, 2012 where he threw for 480 yards and six touchdowns for Green Bay against the Detroit Lions, Flynn signed a three-year, $20.5 million dollar deal with Seattle. Flynn’s time in Seattle was short, losing out on the starting gig to Russell Wilson, and bounced between Oakland and Buffalo before landing in again in Wisconsin.

The Packers will turn to the familiar face of Flynn likely to back up Scott Tolzien, who is scheduled to make his first career start this Sunday against the new York Giants. Tolzien, a third-year player out of Wisconsin, threw for 280 yards on 24-of-39 passing in relief of the injured Seneca Wallace.

The move was made to address quarterback depth in lieu of injuries to both Wallace and starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Rodgers will be out another three to five weeks with the broken collarbone he suffered in the Week 9 loss to Chicago.

In the post-game press conference following Sunday’s loss to Philadelphia, Packers coach Mike McCarthy said that Tolzien would be the starter for the Week 11 game against the Giants. It’s not an ideal situation for Green Bay, but Tolzien looked comfortable but not crisp running plays he “hasn’t even practiced yet,” according to McCarthy’s press conference.

Tolzien should be the starter come Sunday, but signing Flynn provides McCarthy and the Packers with the back-up most familiar with the Green Bay offense. Should Tolzien falter over the next few weeks in Rodgers’ absence, there will be a player in Flynn with at least some semblance of experience able to step in if need be.

It’s still too early to tell what the depth chart will look like once Rodgers returns, and it will likely depend on how Tolzien performs in the mean time. Flynn has played extremely well in an extremely small sample size in his time with Green Bay, but that past performance isn’t enough to vault him into a starter’s role just yet.

  1. If Tolzien falters against the Vikings the season is over for the Packers. GB needs to win their next three division games period. The question is who gives them the better shot at winning? McCarthy is betting on Tolzien. Let’s hope he knows better than us armchair generals. If he can play a clean game the Packers have a chance. That and the defense showing up. Tolzien has shown he can throw the ball deep. We all remember what Flynn did against the Lions…
