New York Giants Interested in Matt Flynn: According to The New York Daily News, the New York Giants are interested in unrestricted free agent quarterback Matt Flynn and may schedule a work out with him.
The 28-year old Flynn was originally drafted in the 7th round of the 2008 NFL Draft by the Green Bay Packers. After four seasons in Green Bay, Flynn then signed with the Seattle Seahawks in 2012, was traded by the Seahawks to the Oakland Raiders in April 2013, released by the Raiders in October 2013, signed by the Buffalo Bills in October 2013, released by the Bills in November 2013, and re-signed by the Packers in November 2013.
Flynn started five games in 2013, one for Oakland and four for Green Bay. He finished the season 124-of-200 (62 percent) for 1,392 yards, eight touchdowns, and five interceptions. Flynn has average size and arm strength.
Current Giants’ offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo was with Flynn in Green Bay from 2008-2011 when McAdoo was Green Bay’s tight ends coach.
“I’d like to have Matt back,’’ said Green Bay Packers Head Coach Mike McCarthy recently. “I thought Matt was a good addition to our football team. I have great respect and admiration for him. I’m hoping financially it works out.’’
Quarterback Eli Manning underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left ankle on Thursday. Manning is not expected to be able to run for at least six weeks.
Team sources have told The New York Daily News that Manning may be limited or even held out of the ten Organized Team Activity (OTA) workouts (various dates from May 28-June 13) and the full-team mini-camp (June 17-19). Manning is expected to return to the practice field when training camp begins in late July.
