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.

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel's Bob McGinn expects Matt Flynn to "certainly" be the Packers' Week 16 starting quarterback after observing the opening portion of Friday's practice.

Just as he has all week, Flynn handled the vast majority of first-team reps. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported early Friday that the Packers don't expect Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) to face Pittsburgh unless "something significantly changes with doctor." The Packers will game plan to pound away with Eddie Lacy in an attempt to hide their quarterback at home on Lambeau Field.

Speaking Monday, Packers coach Mike McCarthy said he's "game-planning right now for Matt Flynn" to be the team's Week 16 starter.

It's the same tact the Pack have taken each of the past three weeks. Sunday's miracle victory has ramped the Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) speculation up to a fever pitch, but the Pack are determined not to make an emotional decision. Rodgers will be re-evaluated on Wednesday. There's a real chance that Rodgers will return against the Steelers, but Flynn should be considered the favorite to start until further notice.

Matt Flynn was the Packers' first-team quarterback during the opening portion of Friday's practice.

The Packers didn't suddenly elevate Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) onto the first team, which suggests they are still planning to start Flynn. Beat writers also expect Flynn to get the nod. "Judging body language, Rodgers didn't seem thrilled," wrote beat reporter Ty Dunne after observing drills.

The Packers are planning on Matt Flynn starting in Week 15, but have left the door open for Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) to return.

"That's the way you have to go about it," coach Mike McCarthy said. "Aaron has hurdles to get over." Rodgers will be re-evaluated on Wednesday. With a division title still within Green Bay's grasp, they're going to give Rodgers every shot at returning, but have made it clear he won't be prematurely cleared. Even against the Cowboys' lowly secondary, Flynn wouldn't be more than a bottom-barrel QB2.
