Report: Matt Flynn Not Offered Contract During Visit With Seahawks

The Seahawks' search for a QB reportedly won't include Matt Flynn.

As the Seahawks continue to chug along in free agency, one player who apparently won't be added to the roster is free agent quarterback Matt Flynn.

Flynn was thought to be the marquee name in this class of free agent QB's, but with Peyton Manning hitting the open market and questions surrounding Flynn's ability to carry a franchise, things haven't exactly gone according to plan.

Flynn, who visited Seattle on overnight on Thursday, is now in Miami, where he is reportedly being handed to the starting job. However, despite the Seahawks' perceived need at QB, KJR's Dave "Softy" Mahler reported Saturday morning that Seattle didn't even extend Flynn an offer.

It was believed by many that the Seahawks had little interest in Flynn, and the report by Mahler seems to support that claim. It is unclear what the next move is for Seattle, but it is likely they now wait to see where Manning lands to see what other QBs become available.
