Matt Flynn is officially off the free agent market. The quarterback will sign a three-year deal with the Seattle Seahawks, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. The contract will be worth up to $26 million, with $10 million guaranteed.
It’s an interesting deal, because it’s not the mega deal that some thought Flynn might get. With the reports of the Miami Dolphins lowballing Flynn on a contract earlier in the week, it’s obvious that the league is understandably skeptical of a player with only two career starts.
For Cleveland Browns fans, Flynn’s signing likely signals the official end of hope that the team would acquire a new quarterback this offseason who would challenge Colt McCoy for the starting job. Unless the Browns are prepared to draft a quarterback next month, it looks as though they are ready to roll with McCoy in 2012.
