At least Matt Flynn got paid.
A year after the Seahawks gave the former Packers backup $10 million to become the starter (supposedly) in Seattle, Flynn continues to slide down depth charts. He has now plunged to No. 3 in Oakland, according to Jerry McDonald of the Bay Area News Group.
It didn’t help that, in Flynn’s first opportunity to play, coach Dennis Allen called him out for not playing very well.
Flynn has fallen behind Matt McGloin, an undrafted rookie from Penn State. McGloin previously bounced fourth-round rookie Tyler Wilson off the roster.
But McGloin won’t be making his first NFL start on Sunday night at 11:35 p.m. ET; Terrelle Pryor has been cleared to start when the Raiders host the Chargers.
Flynn’s free fall calls into question the wisdom of bumping Flynn’s guaranteed money from $2 million to $6.5 million.
