Matt Flynn's brief stint in Seattle is officially over. Jay Glazer tweeted Monday morning:
OAK has traded 2 picks to Seattle for Matt Flynn, will sign papers on it this AM & now trying to finalize Carson Palmer to AZ for late pick — Jay Glazer (@JayGlazer) April 1, 2013
Flynn joined Seattle in anticipation of being their starting quarterback, but Pete Carroll went with Russell Wilson. After a successful first season by Wilson the idea that Seattle would look to move Flynn has been speculated about for days.
Flynn will rejoin former Packers executive Reggie McKenzie, who is now the GM in Oakland.
"I firmly believe that any man’s finest hour, the greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle – victorious."
