If flynn was on the same team as a top 5 quarterback, (patriots, broncos etc.) then Flynn this offseason would be as good as gone (trade!!!) Flynn is at least a top 20 quarterback in the NFL and that is cleary worth a 2nd round pick on an average team with a bad quarterback (Vikings, Jets, Bills, Titans, Chargers) and probably a 3rd round pick on a bad team with a lower pick (Chiefs, Jags, Raiders, etc.)
Flynn is not a career backup... He wants to and can start for another team. Think long and hard if Belichick would waste a great deal of salary and a probable draft pick on keeping a backup behind brady. Wouldn't happen!!! Go Hawks!!!
Btw we're getting a early round pick (by early I mean in rounds 1-3)
