Seahawks QB Matt Flynn Talks About Development As A Player, Competition for Job

It finally appears that newly-signed Seattle Seahawks quarterback Matt Flynn will get his chance to become a starting quarterback in the NFL. He recently sat down with 710 AM ESPN in Seattle to talk about this new opportunity, and his years playing behind Aaron Rodgers in Green Bay.

You can check out highlights of the interview after the jump.

This is the first time in his career that Flynn is able to compete for a starting job at quarterback in his career, and the enthusiasm that he has for the chance really showed in the interview.

"But now it's obviously different because I've got to go compete to be able to play. It wasn't like that in Green Bay, obviously. ... But it's exciting knowing that what I do right now can correlate to the game field."

Flynn also talked about his time in Green Bay and playing behind Rodgers, which he feels has helped him develop greatly.

Aaron, my first year was his first year starting, so he had just been a backup, so he knew what it was like to be a backup and be new in a system and want to learn. ... I tried to soak up as much, tried to be a sponge, and I hope it pays off."
