The Green Bay Packers agreed to terms on an undisclosed deal to re-sign QB Matt Flynn on Tuesday, April 15, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Flynn will remain with the Pack and is expected to battle Scott Tolzien for the backup job. Last season, Flynn went 2-2 as a starter after re-signing with G.B., throwing for 1,146 yards, 7 TDs and 4 interceptions.

Green Bay Packers QB Matt Flynn finished 10-of-20 for 139 yards, 0 TDs and an interception Thursday, Nov. 28 in a 40-10 loss to the Detroit Lions.
Huddle Up: Flynn's start for the Packers couldn't have been any more different than his last one -- a memorable 480-yard, 6-TD Week 17 explosion in Week 17 of the 2011 season. Flynn, Green Bay's 4th starting QB this season was unable to guide the Packers into the end zone, but put most of the blame on the Lions' D which recorded 7 sacks and 9 QB hits. With 10 days until the Packs' next game, Aaron Rodgers might be ready to go in Week 14.

Green Bay Packers QB Matt Flynn took the 'starter reps' in practice Tuesday, Nov. 26, but head coach Mike McCarthy has yet to name Flynn the starter in Week 13 against the Detroit Lions. QB Scott Tolzien was pulled in Week 12 in the third quarter against the Minnesota Vikings. 'I'm very comfortable,' said Flynn, who was the Packers' backup from 2008-2011. 'I feel good with the playbook. I feel good with the game plan. I feel ready to go.' Meanwhile, QB Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) was working on center to quarterback exchanges, executing footwork and drop-back drills while throwing passes to receivers during position drills in practice Tuesday. It's his first practice session since injuring his collarbone Nov. 4. However, Rodgers isn't expected to play in Week 13.
Huddle Up: There's still a glimmer of Week 13 hope for Rodgers' fantasy owners, but it's fading fast to be sure. In fact, Packers' coach Mike McCarthy said the chances of Rodgers playing Thursday are closer to none than slim at this point, so look for the Pack to feature their fourth starting QB of the season in Flynn, who was 21-of-36 for 218 yards, a TD and an interception in his Week 12 relief appearance.

Green Bay Packers QB Scott Tolzien was benched in favor of QB Matt Flynn during the third quarter of Week 12's game against the Minnesota Vikings. Tolzien was 7-for-17 with 98 passing yards and a rushing touchdown before being pulled.
Huddle Up: Flynn played well when he came into the game, and that was a big boost to some of the other offensive players. Maybe he just didn't like being away from Green Bay.

Green Bay Packers QB Matt Flynn (elbow) said that he was dealing with an elbow issue during training camp but is fully healthy now.
Huddle Up: Oh, so that's it *wink wink*. Elbow issues or not, Flynn might just be Green Bay's best bet until Rodgers comes back.

The Green Bay Packers worked out free-agent QB Matt Flynn (Bills) Monday, Nov. 11, and will sign him.
Huddle Up: The Packers originally appeared set to go with Seneca Wallace and Scott Tolzien at QB, but with Wallace's first-quarter groin injury, they have welcomed back Flynn, who has been released by the Seahawks, Raiders and Bills since last playing for Green Bay.

Free-agent QB Matt Flynn is scheduled to work out for the Green Bay Packers Monday, Nov. 11.
Huddle Up: Flynn seemed a logical fit for the Packers when Aaron Rodgers went down, but the team preferred to soldier on with Seneca Wallace and Scott Tolzien. With Wallace now injured as well, it makes sense to bring in a guy intimately familiar with the offense who could step in in a pinch without much prep time. And that would be Flynn.

The Green Bay Packers are unlikely to attempt to sign free-agent QB Matt Flynn (Bills) because they have concerns about his arm.
Huddle Up: With his release from the Bills followed by this news, it appears Flynn may finally have run out of NFL options for the time being.
