Flynn will work out for the Cowboys on Tuesday, the Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Flynn will be joined by Christian Ponder and Josh Johnson. The team hasn't yet decided who Brandon Weeden's backup will be while Tony Romo (broken collarbone) is out, but if none of the veterans impress them, Kellen Moore could also be activated from the practice squad.

Flynn was cut Saturday by the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

Don't be surprised in Flynn resurfaces on the Jets in week 2. They kept him on the preseason roster while he was injured, indicating that they didn't view him as just a camp arm. By cutting him now, they are not on the hook to guarantee his salary. However, if they bring him back in week 2, his salary will no longer be guaranteed. If that's the case, he'll serve as Ryan Fitzpatrick's backup until Geno Smith (jaw) returns to the field.

Flynn completed 10 of 14 passes for 136 yards with two touchdowns and an interception Thursday against the Eagles.

EDGE Analysis

Flynn and Josh Johnson were the only Jets quarterbacks to play in this one, and Flynn easily outclassed his competitor, as he compiled a passer rating of 111.9. He appears poised to start the season as the backup to Ryan Fitzpatrick, but his situation could become a bit tricky. With players being guaranteed their salary if being on the week 1 roster, it's possible the team could temporarily let him go, and bring him back for week 2 to avoid to the financial guarantee.

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 has not been offered a contract, but he may get a look as a second or third option behind expected interim starter Jimmy Garoppolo. As of now, Garrett Gilbert is the only other quarterback on the Patriots' roster.

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.
