After the first practice of his second stint with the Packers, Matt Flynn admitted he never thought a second stint would come.
Flynn, the former backup quarterback in Green Bay who parlayed one good game as the starter into a big contract with the Seahawks, told reporters today that he is excited about his second opportunity, even though he obviously wasn’t hoping to wash out in Seattle, Oakland and Buffalo before returning to Green Bay.
“No, I never did, but standing here right now I’m glad I am,” Flynn said. “I’m extremely happy to be back, extremely happy to be back with people who are familiar with me, see familiar faces and an offense I’m very comfortable with.”
Flynn said his first day of work back at the job felt like being back at the old routine.
“I was here for four years,” Flynn said. “It was a very familiar routine.”
For now, Flynn is the backup to Scott Tolzien. If Flynn does end up playing while Aaron Rodgers is out, the Packers would love it if Flynn could get back on the field and play the same way he did last time he was in a Packers uniform, when he threw for 480 yards in a win over the Lions.
