The Seahawks' search for a QB reportedly won't include 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.
Latest I have on Flynn: Was NOT offered a contract by #Seahawks when he was in town. Indeed in Miami as we speak.— Dave Softy Mahler (@Softykjr) March 17, 2012
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.
