It'll be hard to trade Flynn, IMO. There wasn't much of a market this off-season for the unproven quarterback and next year's might just be worse considering how many teams are seemingly "set" with their veteran/young quarterbacks.
Flynn's contract is $5.25 million next year with $2 mil guaranteed. Too high to trade for as a backup and probably too high for teams looking for, at best, a two-way quarterback competition. Teams looking for an upgrade would do better looking to the draft.
I could see Flynn staying through 2013, but if Wilson is still the starter by then, Flynn is gone. It's excusable to pay that now (or next year) to backup a 1st year or 2nd year young player, but not for a 3rd year starter (where Flynn is set to make $6.25m).
