Rumors have it that Seattle quarterback Matt Flynn is on his way to becoming a Oakland Raider. Is the Seahawks organization jumping the gun on this deal? We all know that Russell Wilson had a great year in his rookie season to Unseat Flynn for the starting job. It that enough for the Seahawks to unload Flynn already?
Seattle brought Flynn into the organization and yes they probably paid him too much money seeing how he was only a back up that played a couple of great games in Green Bay. But to just get rid of him because you think Wilson is your franchise guy is crazy.
Wilson could be a one season wonder. The NFL wasn’t used to him and the 2013 season could be different for Wilson. Now teams know what to expect from Wilson. His style of play leaves him open to take hits a quarterback shouldn’t take.
Seattle should keep Flynn for at least one more season to see what kind of year Wilson is going to have in 2013. To trade him to the Raiders, could be a mistake. If Wilson goes down to injury having Flynn for a backup gives the Seahawks a 1-2 punch.
I know Flynn is making a lot of money to ride the bench but he is an insurance policy for the Seattle offense. Once he is gone, the Seahawks will be going into the 2013 season without the piece of mind they had when they names Russell Wilson the starter.
