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.

Flynn completed the only pass he threw for eight yards and lost a fumble in Sunday's loss to the Saints.

Flynn saw action late in Sunday's game with the outcome decided and starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers slowed by a hamstring injury. Rodgers does not expect to miss any further action due to the setback, but if for some reason he does, Flynn would likely start in his place.

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.

Packers re-signed QB Matt Flynn.

And we now know why Flynn didn't make his previously reported visit to work out for the Giants on Tuesday. Flynn made five appearances (four starts) last season and completed 61.4 percent of his passes for 1,146 yards, seven touchdowns, and four interceptions. He also took a whopping 17 sacks and lost four fumbles. Flynn will have a leg up on Scott Tolzien for No. 2 duties.

Updating a previous item, free agent QB Matt Flynn will not work out for the Giants on Tuesday.

It was previously reported that Flynn was going to join fellow free agent Josh Freeman in the Meadowlands on Tuesday, but Flynn is not taking part for unknown reasons. There may have never been a visit scheduled in the first place. Flynn's best bet is to return to Green Bay on a minimum deal.

Free agent QB Matt Flynn is expected to work out for the Giants Tuesday.

Flynn and fellow free agent Josh Freeman are both getting a look from the G-Men this week. One will likely be signed as an offseason/camp arm, especially in light of Eli Manning's ankle surgery. They'd compete with Curtis Painter for a roster spot behind developmental option Ryan Nassib.

The Giants have "reached out" to free agent QB Matt Flynn.

After Eli Manning underwent ankle surgery on Thursday, the Giants are heating up their efforts to bring in a veteran quarterback to handle some offseason reps. Josh Freeman will reportedly work out for the Giants next week. The Packers want to re-sign Flynn, but he's likely looking for more money than they'd offer.

Coach Mike McCarthy said he'd like to re-sign free agent QB Matt Flynn.

Ideally, McCarthy wants to carry both Scott Tolzien and Flynn behind Aaron Rodgers. But the Packers haven't come out of camp with three signal callers on the roster since 2008 and there's no real sense of urgency. Although the backup quarterback market has been churning, Flynn has predictably attracted zero known interest.
