Matt Flynn has been traded from the Seattle Seahawks to the Oakland Raiders in exchange for a late-round 2014 draft pick and a conditional 2015 draft pick as being reported by Jay Glazer of Fox Sports.
Flynn has minimal starter experience as a NFL quarterback during his career with the Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks. Finding himself on the Oakland Raiders now; a team that is under a major overhaul, things probably won’t come easy for him.
The biggest impact is how this helps save the Seahawks several million dollars in contract payments as well as relief on the salary cap. The draft picks have minimal affect at best for the longterm strength of the Seattle club.
The Raiders will be a run first, second, third type of team for the most part this season. And when they do decide to throw downfield, it will be to a patchwork wide receiving group that is far from a completed project. The fantasy implications of this deal are non-existent. Flynn is a low-end QB3 in deeper fantasy leagues and one that deserves to go undrafted.
