You can't judge this year by last years results. Those disinterested teams thought they had it made with Gabbert/Kolb/Ponder/Palmer/Vick/Freeman/Sanchez+Tebow/Fitzpatrick/Weeden/Cassell/Locker. They found out otherwise.
So do they continue with what they have, take a chance using a 1st round pick on a QB again? Or maybe they use a 2nd, 3rd or 4th round pick on a QB? Highly unproductive way of finding a franchise QB.
They could go after a trade/free agent that has had a modicum of success. It all depends on their situation. If they believe they have a talented team and are just a Quarterback away, I think a team would consider trading for Flynn. If they think they need someone that can start while their young QBOTF learns, or one that knows how to prepare to start in the NFL to mentor their young QB, I think they would consider someone like Flynn over the scraps that are on the street.
Anyway, there are a lot of variables including a front office's tenure and it's impossible to predict with any accuracy. But I believe with the current QB/FO situation being so unsettled on so many teams that Matt Flynn has that kind of value. Only time will tell.
