Report: Browns expected to make a play for Matt Flynn

Green Bay Packers v Cleveland Browns Getty Images

There has been a lot of chatter at the Combine about the Browns trying to trade up for Robert Griffin III.

But what if Cleveland has already invested big bucks in a quarterback well before the draft?

Steve Doerschuk of the Canton Repository writes the Browns brass “will make a play for Matt Flynn” with the hopes of making Flynn the team’s starter. They will have competition, though.

“There will be a budget that will not be exceeded in the play for Flynn,” Doerschuk writes.

That budget may have to include draft picks if the Packers use the franchise tag on Flynn. The Green Bay Press-Gazette believes that’s a “real possibility.”

Doerschuk believes the Dolphins are ultimately the favorites for Flynn. Miami might not be confident in their ability to get a rookie quarterback to build around and coach Joe Philbin’s history with Flynn gives Miami inside knowledge. (Let’s assume that’s a positive.)

Teams like Cleveland and Washington are in a tough spot. They may want Griffin, but can they wait for him and risk getting stuck in another season without a real quarterback?

    Because Cleveland has such a good track record with overrated free-agent QBs.

    Jeff Garcia, anyone?

  2. akhter02 says: Feb 23, 2012 11:09 PM

    Hope he doesn’t turn out as the next Kevin Kolb

  3. jessethegreat says: Feb 23, 2012 11:13 PM

    Packers franchise him.. then trade him and Packers 2nd for Browns 2nd round pick or possibly the 1st rounder the Browns received from the Falcons.

    This trade would be fair for both teams, and be very similar to the trade that sent Hass to Seattle.

    I believe in Flynn but don’t believe the trade of Flynn and the Packers 2nd or 1st for the Browns top 5 pick would be fair compensation. . . . . although if Thompson really liked a stud defensive player that close to the top of the draft, I believe Flynn, Packers 1 and Packers 2 would be adequate compensation.

    Matt Flynn belongs in Cleveland. They have the draft picks to build around him & the front office to develop him. He’ll be much happier in Cleveland than anywhere else.

    Packers should keep Flynnie for insurance….

    They would be smart to do so.

  8. skinsnation703 says: Feb 23, 2012 11:18 PM

    As a Skins fan, I hope they get him.

  9. 1972wasalongtimeago says: Feb 23, 2012 11:21 PM

    Browns sign Flynn and Skins sign Manning. All of a sudden the Rams trade down market got a little less competitive. Dolphins swoop in with a 1 and a 2, and steal the second pick.

    Then we plant some cocaine on Andrew Luck. Colts pick someone else. BOOM! goes the dynamite! The starting QB for YOUR Miami Dolphins, #11 (12 is retired), Andrew Luck!

  10. trbowman says: Feb 23, 2012 11:28 PM

    Speaking of Kolb, the Browns would likely make a play for him if he’s dumped by Arizona.

    Kolb can still be a starter in the right system.

  11. roamingabriel says: Feb 23, 2012 11:28 PM

    Flynn would be a fool to choose Cleveland. It’s like prison, no one goes there willingly…

    And the Packers can’t keep Flynn because he’s too expensive if they tag him, and he wants to start…

    He’s going to be in Miami unless an asteroid knocks us off our axis…

  12. lostsok says: Feb 23, 2012 11:34 PM

    “1972wasalongtimeago says: Then we plant some cocaine on Andrew Luck. ”

  13. brenenostler says: Feb 23, 2012 11:35 PM

    Honestly, if I were a Dolphins fan, I wouldn’t want Matt Flynn. If Flynn signs with Miami, then any chances of getting Peyton are gone. (Remember Peyton is interested in Miami)

    Besides, they could also draft Tannehill and have him learn behind Peyton until he retires.

  14. bigzant82 says: Feb 23, 2012 11:35 PM

    BROWNSS PLEASE NOOO DNT DO THIS

  15. mrslay1 says: Feb 23, 2012 11:36 PM

    I hope these idiots do this. Then McCoy can get traded to a real team. God help who ever plays for the browns. Get out Hillis and McCoy…they don’t deserve you!

  16. scoresreport says: Feb 23, 2012 11:49 PM

    I don’t see the Pack franchising him.

    If he’s a free agent the Browns might have an interesting choice. They can trade up for Griffin with the #22 pick. RG3 has great skills and huge upside.

    Or, they sign Flynn and then have the #4 pick to draft a guy like Coples to round out an excellent d-line and then a receiver at #22. Flynn doesn’t have RG3’s talent but he’s spent 4 years learning the West Coast Offense from the best. He’s ready now and you get 2 more studs with your picks.

    The riskiest option with best upside might be to just wait and see if RG3 is available at #4.

  17. TheNaturalMevs says: Feb 23, 2012 11:51 PM

    They’re such a forever loser franchise. Have it on good authority they really wanted Kolb this past offseason before Arizona got him as well. They will never, ever figure it out. I hope they land Matt Flynn–and they flounder forever. Such a loser franchise. This kid isn’t the answer and the Browns are going to be bad for another decade, so sad they’ve destroyed the once proud franchise.

  18. gorilladik81 says: Feb 23, 2012 11:59 PM

    Matt Flynn is the second coming of Rob Johnson, trader beware.

  19. quadya says: Feb 24, 2012 12:01 AM

    Miami might not be confident in their ability to get a rookie quarterback to build around and coach Joe Philbin’s history with Flynn gives Miami inside knowledge. (Let’s assume that’s a positive.)

    Really? Man you guys really do hate the Dolphins don’t you…..still waiting for one positive piece written about them.

  20. hikohadon says: Feb 24, 2012 12:02 AM

    I’d much rather have RG3, but Flynn would be a decent 2nd option. But ONLY as a FA. You do NOT give up draft picks for Flynn.

    If Green Bay franchises Flynn, I think the Browns and Skins should let them choke on him.

  21. ken0west says: Feb 24, 2012 12:07 AM

    Anything more that a 6th for Flynn is to much. The tag is a obvious a bluff in this situation.

  22. klunge says: Feb 24, 2012 12:08 AM

    It would be hilarious of GB tagged Flynn hoping to make out in a trade deal, then all the other teams backed away and left them holding the bag for a $14M+ backup QB that makes 75% more than the NFL MVP starter.

  23. arnoldziffel says: Feb 24, 2012 12:12 AM

    The Packers simpy cannot franchise Flynn … which would entitle him to a salary of 14 million next season. Can’t pay that for a backup to Rodgers and can’t trade that kind of salary to another team who would be taking a risk of some measure for player who’s worth is based on two starts … vs. the Patriots and vs. the Lions.

    Cleveland makes the most sense. Instead of the Browns trading up two spots for RG3 .. and giving up part of the kitchen sink to do so … they should make Flynn an offer he can’t refuse … and use those high draft picks on good players.

    Hate to see Flynn go for nothing but, them’s the breaks. Hope the Packer’s quarterback factory can churn out another quality backup for Rodgers – who will probably be in town for at least another decade.

  24. mcjon22 says: Feb 24, 2012 12:19 AM

    So Flynn will make a ‘Decision’ over Cleveland or Miami? Close your eyes Clevelanders, you’ve seen this movie before…

  25. 4512dawg4512 says: Feb 24, 2012 12:23 AM

    I had a bad feeling that Flynn would get tossed around in the Cleveland Browns talk. Not so bad for the Browns but more so for Flynn. The Browns aren’t a QB away from competing in the AFC North, they’re a front office away from competing and I’m really not cool with it, but its true. So grab Flynn and trade the draft picks, its the same treadmill the Browns have been running on for almost two decades now

  26. bigswifty74 says: Feb 24, 2012 12:37 AM

    “Flynn-sanity” starts this fall.

    First.

  27. chowface86 says: Feb 24, 2012 12:41 AM

    Big deal…

    I would rather have Spergon Wynn back.

  28. rowdymon says: Feb 24, 2012 12:41 AM

    If they franchise Flynn, then stay away – price is too high. If they don’t then go for it.

  29. bleed4philly says: Feb 24, 2012 12:43 AM

    Flynn will be in Miami with Philbin. Browns will trade up and take RG3. Mark it down.

  30. chargerdillon says: Feb 24, 2012 12:47 AM

    Poor Matt Flynn

  31. metalhead65 says: Feb 24, 2012 12:53 AM

    I would hope holmgren is smarter than to toss away the future of the browns on a guy with 2 starts and who may well be a system qb. if the pack franchises him then that’s their problem but I wouldn’t give up your #1s for him. giving up a ton of picks for a frabchise qb is one thing but a guy like flynn? as a bears fan it would be fun to watch how rodgers reacts to his backup making more than him. I hope the phins get him and keep up the tradition of not having a legit qb since Marino. makes up for hearing about 1972 all the time.

  32. maximusprime107 says: Feb 24, 2012 1:16 AM

    interested to see who lands Flynn and if it will top the trade rape the Eagles were able to do for Kolb

  33. saki1921 says: Feb 24, 2012 1:18 AM

    If that were to happen, the Browns would offer the #4 pick to the Dolphins for less than it would take to get to the #2 pick because everyone knows that the Rams and Vikings aren’t going to take Griffin, so he would be sitting there at #4 for the Dolphins.

  37. vikingdoode says: Feb 24, 2012 1:38 AM

    im sure childress will ruin him too like he did to Brett farve

  38. pmars64 says: Feb 24, 2012 1:41 AM

    As Browns fan, I REALLY hope this is smokescreen BS from the Browns front office. I want no part of a former 7th round system QB with average arm strength at best. I say do what it takes to get a FRANCHISE QB and if RGIII is, then make the deal. I’d give up the second first round pick plus a mid level pick or two (or even three) to get him. It is rare to have a real chance to draft a potential star QB.

  39. vots50 says: Feb 24, 2012 2:17 AM

    People always bring up Kevin Kolb and Matt Cassel as reasons to doubt Matt Flynn. But, did we forget about Matt Schaub? It’s worked out before.

    Plus, if it’s alright to tie up all sorts of money and a high draft pick in an unproven college player, then why’s it not alright for a team to tie up the same amount of money and give up a high draft pick for an unproven professional player, with some NFL experience?

    I say if CLE or anybody else feel better about Flynn than Griffin III, what’s the problem?

  40. jbmartindale says: Feb 24, 2012 2:31 AM

    You skin fans thinking RGIII is your magic potion are funny. Haven’t you seen this movie before?

    What makes you think he wouldn’t pick 16 or 7? (in honor of Plunkett or Elway)

  43. Matt-NC says: Feb 24, 2012 6:25 AM

    Holmgren has a pretty good track record for identifying QB talent. If he thinks Flynn is the real deal, he’ll pull the trigger.

  44. TheNaturalMevs says: Feb 24, 2012 6:52 AM

    Holmgren is clueless. What rock have you been living under? The guy doesn’t care about winning anymore. He cares about 6 figure paychecks and testing out Cleveland’s finest sandwiches during days he has to address the media. He spins it the way he wants and then flys back to Seattle to bounce his grandkids on his knee.

    Just awful.

  45. deadmanwalking47 says: Feb 24, 2012 7:53 AM

    i hope they do sign him cause this makes rg3 to washington a real possibility!

  46. rpiotr01 says: Feb 24, 2012 7:58 AM

    GB wouldn’t tag Flynn unless they had something worked out already. The tagging and trading would be concurrent. They’re not going to tag him and then hope for the best, it doesn’t work that way in situations like this.

  47. burm61 says: Feb 24, 2012 8:01 AM

    The best question to ask… Why? Use your picks! Take RGIII or Blackmon then get the BC LB with the Atl pick and take David Wilson in the 2nd round and resign Hillis. Young team with HOPE.

  48. packfaninchitown says: Feb 24, 2012 8:02 AM

    I truly hope Matt goes to an AFC team, he is going to be a stud.

    thats unfortunate for flynn, cleveland is where qbs go to die, if it doesnt happen he’ll proly be a fin, in that case i feel bad for rg3. lol at the guy who said flynn belongs in cleveland, your a browns fan not a skins fan.

  50. digitaldonnie says: Feb 24, 2012 8:11 AM

    As a Browns fan I trust The Walrus. His track record at eyeing QB’s is stout. They need those two first rounders more than they need RG3.

  51. hendawg21 says: Feb 24, 2012 8:14 AM

    Pure speculation on your part do you actually want us to believe that these teams are telling you what their plans are??? I mean do you really, really believe that whomever wants RGIII, Matt Flynn or Peyton Manning would just come out and say it? If so i’d like to be in a poker game with them…oh I can’t wait until free agency and the draft have come and gone so we can be done with all this nonsense.

    – – – –
    You mean a backup QB on another teams roster once worked?

    Like when Wolf/Holmgren got Brett Favre from the Falcons for the Packers and when Holmgren got Matt Hasselbeck for the Seawhawks?

    To posters on Internet boards, 2005 is “back in the day”. No historical knowledge or perspective at all.

  56. mvp4mer says: Feb 24, 2012 8:35 AM

    History says the Packers will likely get a second round pick for Flynn. Wherever he goes (Cleveland, Miami) he will be a significant upgrade at the position. Ted Thompson will not franchise him unless there is a deal in place ahead of time. Holmgren does not want to give up a boatload of picks to move up for an unproven RG3. They need help at too many other positions.

    —————————————————————————-

    ???? You’re an idiot. What movie would this be you are speaking of? Heath Shuler? Bottom line, there is no comparison between these 2 QB’s. You can’t add the Patrick Ramsey, Jason Campbell because again there is no comparison. RGIII is a special talent, and will be a very good QB in this league. Skins fans are not looking for a magic potion, we are just looking for a rebuilding process that will continue infusing young talent with veteran leadership that will eventually make this team winning again. How about that movie?

  58. emmac13 says: Feb 24, 2012 8:36 AM

    Good way to keep Rams in check with demands. If Cleveland is offering the 4th and the 22nd. But the Rams want more. Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth. Or John Elway for that fact.

  59. packattack1967 says: Feb 24, 2012 8:42 AM

  60. coop16 says: Feb 24, 2012 8:43 AM

    Flynn makes perfect sense for the Browns if they can snag him as a free agent. If the Packers franchise him and demand draft picks for him, then maybe not. But if they let him leave as a free agent, the Browns have two choices:

    (1) Trade both first-round picks for RG3, who has never played in the West Coast offense and doesn’t seem very well suited to it.

    (2) Sign Flynn, who is thoroughly trained in the WCO and has played great. (The FOOTBALL OUTSIDERS rate him as a future Pro Bowl QB.) This option also allows the Browns to keep their two first-round picks and use them to bring in more good players.

    Kind of obvious as to which option is preferable, huh?

  61. timb289 says: Feb 24, 2012 8:55 AM

    R U kidding me! One game against a Lions defense that other teams consistantly passed on all season long and Matt Flynn is all of a sudden a true starter. As a Browns fan, Ive learned to live with starting over. Fire them all, then at least we have hope again!

    __________________________________
    If I’m reading this right you think the Rams would trade all the way down to the 22nd pick (plus a few mid round picks) and give up the 2nd overall? Absolutely no chance. There’s a ton more value in just keeping the pick and drafting blackmon or kalil if that’s all they could get.

    As long as Manning isn’t a redskin there will be a lot of value in that pick with 3 potential teams. If Manning and Flynn are with the Skins and Dolphins respectively, then I can’t see anyone other than the Browns interested and it won’t take as much or they’ll just wait it out.

  63. hendawg21 says: Feb 24, 2012 9:39 AM

    I’ve seen and heard the comments about Flynn only playing in 2 NFL games well what’s your point??? That’s 2 more games than any rookie you may draft and or start…football is football the only difference is terminology and being able to read defenses some adapt well, others adapt slower and then there are those who just aren’t NFL material Leaf, Russell, Shuler etc.,..

  64. lbcoach34 says: Feb 24, 2012 9:46 AM

    all this report means is that CLE is interested in RG3 – and trying to smokescreen…

  65. gallogj says: Feb 24, 2012 9:50 AM

    First Quinn…now Flynn…who’s next Finn from Glee? He’s a QB who played in Ohio…albeit a fictionary Ohio.

    If you can get Flynn for a 3rd rounder…then make the move…if not…stick to the plan and get McCoy some weapons. RGIII’s not going to do any better without weapons. Defenses are just going to blitz him every other play to make him run because he has nobody to throw to.

  66. psps23 says: Feb 24, 2012 10:14 AM

    “There will be a budget that will not be exceeded in the play for Flynn,” Doerschuk writes.

    That’s a bad sign. If he’s the right guy, there should be no budget. A franchise QB is easily worth more than any conceivable trade

  67. psps23 says: Feb 24, 2012 10:21 AM

    “You skin fans thinking RGIII is your magic potion are funny. Haven’t you seen this movie before?”

    No. When was the last time the Redskins traded up in the top 5 to target an elite, young QB prospect? People who are uninformed really shouldn’t speak on behalf of other teams.

  68. vbev63 says: Feb 24, 2012 10:38 AM

    I like McCoy, who’ll be better in his 3rd year, & I like Flynn & Robert as I got to watch all 3 in college. I knew Flynn would beat Brohm for backup in GB even though he was a 7th rounder. The real problem in Cleveland is a weak Offensive line with no blind side help and a FB that was of little help in blocking and a almost no running game and receivers who did not have time to run routes because the line was a 2 second line….Until the line is a real line none of the three QBs mentioned stands a snowballs chance in Cleveland Stadium of being a franchise QB….Going back to Flynn being pushed to come to Cleveland as the new starter, and I note above he was a 7th rounder….When will the Cleveland fans get it through their heads that it does not always make any difference which round a QB is picked in and they dump on McCoy as being a 3rd rounder…Again, none of the three are 6’4″ and 235, so I guess that does not matter any more either?? So go figure.

    I would hope holmgren is smarter than to toss away both first round picks and possibly of the browns on a guy with NO starts, never lead his team to a national championship, never even taken a snap at the NFL level and who has never played in a WEST COAST system

  70. jessethegreat says: Feb 24, 2012 12:03 PM

    People against getting Flynn are not thinking this thru.

    I understand RGIII might have more talent and value than Flynn alone, but in evaluating this, you have to consider RGIII vs. Flynn, + the 4th overall pick + the 22nd pick + whatever other picks the Rams want to move down TWO spots in the draft from 2 to 4.

    Realistically, even if the Packers franchise Flynn and trade him to them, the Browns still will likely come away with Flynn, #4 overall, #22 overall, and something like Packers 2nd round pick (approximately 26 in 2nd round so #58 overall) while only giving up Browns 2nd round (#36 overall).

  71. captcrunch5019 says: Feb 24, 2012 12:03 PM

    Forget about …Flynn is ours.

  72. digitaldonnie says: Feb 24, 2012 2:07 PM

    Let’s see……The Browns would have to 1. change the play book fir RG3 or least wait to develop him as a passer in the WCO. 2. Trade away at the very least two 1st round picks to get him. Or a 2nd and maybe on of the 4th round picks for Flynn. A guy who already knows the WCO, and has shown (yes I understand it was only two starts) he’s ready to play day 1. Keep the picks, talk to GB, and find him weapons. If STL. moves out from 2 to the Skins than take Blackmon, and look DE at 22. if they stay at 2, take Honeybadger, Kendell Wright or Floyd at 22.

  73. mrslay1 says: Feb 24, 2012 6:18 PM

    Or try this…Keep Colt McCoy who is better than Flynn or rg3 and get a OL, a few playmakers and hence.. TRULY address whats wrong with the team. What am I saying…This IS the Browns

  74. toolkien says: Feb 24, 2012 8:40 PM

    Because Cleveland has such a good track record with overrated free-agent QBs.

    Jeff Garcia, anyone?
    —————————————-
    Garcia did pretty well where ever he’s played EXCEPT Cleveland. Don’t blame Garcia for Cleveland’s crumminess.

    Garcia’s got the 19th best QB rating, indexed for era, out of 136 QB’s (with more than 1500 attempts) since the merger in 1970.

    1. Green Bay will franchise tag Matt Flynn. This move was set in motion by signing Finley to a two year contract. If Ted was not going to use the franchise tag on Flynn then he would have used it on Finley for 5.5M instead of 15.0M for two years.

    2. Green Bay will have the cap room to tag Flynn. They just need to clear 10M to do so. After releasing Clifton and restructuring Driver’s deal the team will clear 10M.

    3. Matt Flynn will not come cheap. Teams will have to surrender a high draft pick to acquire his services, especially considering the GM is Ted Thompson. Now, that may be too high of a price to some fans but prices are always high when you think a QB can be your franchise.

    4. Whoever gets Matt Flynn is getting a great QB. Flynn has matured every year since being drafted. This kid can make all the throws and he possesses something that all great QB’s have, great pocket presence. If your team is talking about Flynn I would be excited. I have enjoyed watching him play and I am sad to see him leave Green Bay, however, Flynn is being blocked by this guy named MVP.

    Cleveland should offer Flynn a deal and keep the draft picks. Use the 4th pick and take Kalil. Then use the next pick for a receiver.

    I believe Flynn has already turned down TT’s offer to stay in GB as a backup. That leaves the Packers with no choice but to franchise tag him. Now it is just a matter of GB waiting to see who is willing to pay the highest price in a trade. That is almost certainly the Dolphins.
