Jason Wilde of ESPNMilwaukee.com reports that it is unlikely to happen.
The Packers and especially G.M. Ted Thompson are sticklers for NFL rules. It would only make sense to tag Flynn if they were confident in their ability to trade him or if they had some sort of handshake agreement to do so. But that’s not Thompson’s style.
“(Thomspson) doesn’t bend the rules,” one NFL team executive told Wilde.
“(The Packers) don’t do business that way,” another NFL source said at the Combine.
Trading Flynn wouldn’t necessarily be easy. It could be a long process where another team has to come to terms on a new deal for Flynn, in addition to that team and the Packers settling on trade compensation.
While the possibility of the Packers can’t completely be ruled out, it’s looking more likely that Flynn will hit the market.
