Patriots sign QB Matt Flynn


The Patriots add an insurance plan at QB today.

The New England Patriots have signed former Packers QB Matt Flynn to a deal, according to ESPN’s Dianna Marie Russini.

The Patriots may not have Tom Brady through the first four games, at the very least, the first game, so they needed another QB, and will need one more on the roster while Brady serves his suspension.

Flynn will backup current backup QB Jimmy Garoppolo, who will be the team’s day one starter if Brady misses the game due to his suspension.

If Brady sits longer than one or two games and Garoppolo struggles, Flynn makes a great backup’s backup plan.

The Pats waived QB Garrett Gilbert, unsurprising, since they wanted to sign Flynn.  They also released WR Zach D’Orazio.

They also announced they signed a couple UDFA’s: LB D.J. Lynch (Bowling Green), TE Jimmay Mundine (Kansas), and TE Logan Stokes (LSU).

Also, in other news, a big breaking news, the Eagles released guard Evan Mathis. It’s big news for this site because it was reported earlier, the Pats may have had an interest in the guard, and now he’s a free agent. We will see what happens.
