Seahawks visiting with Chad Henne, then Matt Flynn

Lions Packers Football AP

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Seahawks will host quarterback Matt Flynn for a free agent visit on Thursday night and into Friday.

Seattle has been expected to bid on Flynn, though the club’s level of interest is unclear. As NFL Network’s Jeff Darlington has reported, Chad Henne will be the Seahawks’ first quarterback visit.

Seahawks G.M. John Schneider was in the Packers’ front office when Green Bay stole Flynn in the seventh round of the 2008 draft. Schneider should have extensive knowledge of Flynn’s strength and weaknesses, so he won’t be fooled by a quarterback who’s started only two career NFL games.

Flynn is the No. 16 overall player on PFT’s Hot 100. Henne is No. 52.

    So much for everyone blasting Flynn for being the next Kolb, we are just now hearing about his first visit.

    Get him! This is what the team is lacking, potential. Tjack is backup in case of injury. Continue to develop Portis. Tell henne good luck with his job hunt!

    Flynn to Miami.
    Henne to Seattle.
    Manning to where ever.

    One can hope, can’t he?

    Hurry up sign flynn and give us a chance to compete next year.

    Either of those guys would only be a marginal upgrade over TJack. Better to just wait for Barkley next year.

    The Seahawks are really going for the home run here… Wow, when is Matt Lienert visiting?

    Henne, with actual coaching support as opposed to the represssion he had in Miami, will be a very good QB for Seattle.

    Chad Henne is better than what people realize. Spend most of your career running a playbook from the 1980s and see how well you fare. Dan Hennings was a horrific OC and it hampered not only Henne but every Qb Miami put under center. The only one with marginal success was Pennington and that was because he was allowed to audible to checkdown throws. Henne will do well with an OC that is using a playbook from this century.

    Yes, wait for Barkley, so they can waste another year with TJack and then have to trade 3-4 first round picks for a completely unproven rookie. Grand idea.

    I thought the Seahawks were set at QB once they locked up Charlie Whitehurst.

    Whoevet they decide to get let it be anybody but T Jackson, yes T Jack did an ok job last year and gave it his all hes a backup QB at most and thank him for last year, but to say it outloud we havent seen what this team can do despite all the injuries what 1/2 the starters were injured all year so that being said we neef to replace clemons and brock in the draft in my opinion, get some mean muggin ppl

    Either one will be ok…. Just do something for Pete’s sake. All the 12th man is getting frustrated already, we got the cap room and a filthy rich owner, just sign somebody that will makes us better. Stop saying “we tried our best to sign them”

  13. hawker1982 says: Mar 14, 2012 11:33 AM

    Ether QB would push for if not take over starting job from T-Jack bye the end of training camp . T-jack is tough player but seems to afraid to get rid of the ball which means he will always struggle to keep starting job in NFL.

    Umm, the packers “stole” flynn in the 7th round? ya ok.

    This just goes to show you that it just takes the right environment to groom a player. And it takes the right environment to kill a players development also.

    I would say Flynn won the lottery by getting drafted by the packers.

    Can we please put the whole “we have a filthy rich owner” thing to rest? Don’t you guys realize that there’s a salary cap that levels the playing field? This isn’t the MLB!

    Flynn was lucky he was closely mentored by one of the best QBs in the league in Rodgers. If he had been on the team earlier, he would have had to learn how to be a pro QB by osmosis (passive learning) because Favre would have shunned and actively gone OUT of his way to not help Flynn whatsoever.

    An insider within the seahawks say they plan to offer a contract to flynn when he gets there thursday night.

  18. mrslay1 says: Mar 14, 2012 2:37 PM

    Flynn should run from here if he wants to win! Otherwise you better get a long team deal with a lot of guaranty money

  19. hawkron says: Mar 14, 2012 2:43 PM

    I think that is the only way Seattle brings in any FA’s, overpay them…
