Matt Flynn has agreed to terms with the Seahawks on a contract worth up to $26M with $10M guaranteed.

Fantasy Impact: 

With just two starts in his NFL career, the book on Flynn is thin, but it's a very good read. In 2010, with Aaron Rodgers sidelined due to a concussion, Flynn completed 24-for-37 passes for 251 yards, three TDs and an interception in a near-upset of the Patriots in Foxboro. Last season, with Rodgers resting in Week 17, Flynn had a record-setting day, throwing for 480 yards and six TDs (with just one pick) against the Lions in not-so-great conditions at Lambeau Field. He joins a Seattle offense that has a few good weapons in the passing game, including Sidney Rice, Doug Baldwin, Golden Tate and Zach Miller. Rice's health will be key. While Flynn doesn't have an overpowering arm, he's accurate and is very poised in the pocket. He'll likely be a middle round fantasy pick (going in the 10th-12th rounds) best suited for spot duty in a Quarterback By Committee (QBBC).
