Matt Flynn’s solid effort against the Patriots late last season has a lot of folks wondering if the Packers backup quarterback could be traded this offseason. (If trades are allowed.)
Packers G.M. Ted Thompson did his best Friday to slow down that speculation.
“People are trying to get ahead of themselves, saying this is the logical next step. That’s not necessarily the logical next step. He’s on our team,” Thompson said.
Thompson is never going to give away too much in a press conference setting. But he seemed to indicate that the team has no plans to deal Flynn at this stage. That is different than Eagles G.M. Howie Roseman, who indicated Thursday that trading Kevin Kolb is a possibility. (Of course, Thompson could just be driving up the price.)
“[Flynn's] future is to be on our team. That’s our plan right now,” Thompson said.
