Flynn signed with the Patriots on Thursday, Dianna Marie Russini of ESPN reports.

The prospect of Tom Brady's four-game suspension likely spurred the move, no matter the Patriots' confidence in a reduction of the ban. Furthermore, Jimmy Garoppolo may require further study before he's thrown into the fire, meaning Flynn is a wild-card heading into training camp. In 46 career appearances (six starts) with the Packers, Flynn completed 61.1 percent off his passes (192-of-314) for 2,227 yards and 16 touchdowns versus 10 interceptions.

Flynn worked out for the Patriots on Tuesday, Dianna Marie Russini of ESPN reports.

Flynn appeared in seven games during the 2014 season and completed 8-of-16 passes for 66 yards. He did not throw a touchdown pass and was intercepted once.

Flynn served as the Packers' primary backup behind Aaron Rodgers in 2014. He started four games in 2013 while Rodgers was sidelined with a broken collarbone, but most of his action this season came in games where the outcome was decided before he took the field. It remains to be seen if he will retain the backup duties in 2015.

Coach Mike McCarthy confirmed Sunday that Flynn is the Packers' backup quarterback, Jason Wilde of ESPNWisconsin reports.

The team's backup signal-caller slotting is of course only of import in the event of an Aaron Rodgers injury, but per the report, Flynn slots in as the team's No. 2 QB, with Scott Tolzien in the No. 3 spot.

Flynn completed 5-of-10 passes for 49 yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Titans.

Flynn did not have much success throwing the ball in rainy conditions and managed just 49 passing yards despite playing nearly the entire first half. Despite the bland performance, Flynn will almost certainly enter the season as the backup behind Aaron Rodgers.
