The New England Patriots worked out former Packers QB Matt Flynn on Wedsenday, according to ESPN’s Dianna Marie Russini.
Matt Flynn made a name for himself when he played the Packers and had to come in for an injured Aaron Rodgers, against the Patriots in 2010. He threw 24 completions for 251 yards, 3 touchdowns, and 1 interception in a losing effort. The Packers lost that game, 27-31.
Flynn would really break out in 2013, when he came in for Aaron Rodgers after an injury, leading them to a 2-2-1 record, keeping the Packers playoff hopes alive. He led an amazing comeback against the Dallas Cowboys, 37-35 win.
He flourished in the Packers system, but never broke out for the Raiders or Seahawks, where he was beaten out by Terrell Pryor and Russel Wilson.
The Pats may be looking at all options just in case Brady’s suspension stands at four games and Jimmy Garoppolo struggles.
There are currently no contract talk between the Pats and Flynn.
