When Aaron Rodgers went down to injury last season, the Green Bay Packers had to turn to Scott Tolzien and Matt Flynn to keep the team’s postseason hopes alive until Rodgers could return.
Flynn guided the Packers to a 2-2 record in four starts to keep Green Bay in the hunt until Rodgers returned for the final weekend of the regular season.
Now head coach Mike McCarthy wants to bring Flynn back to the Packers.
According to Jason Wilde of ESPNMilwaukee.com, McCarthy is hopeful the two sides can work out a deal to keep Flynn in town.
“I’d like to have Matt back,” McCarthy said. “I thought Matt was a good addition to our football team. I have great respect and admiration for him, just being around him a lot on a positional basis. Yeah, I’m hoping financially it works out.”
Flynn returned to the Packers after a whirlwind season that saw him on the rosters of the Seattle Seahawks, Oakland Raiders and Buffalo Bills. Flynn completed 62 percent of his passes for 1,392 yards with eight touchdowns and five interceptions in seven games split between Oakland and Green Bay.
