Source: Hurting Packers bringing back Matt Flynn

It seemed only a matter of time.

A week after losing starting QB Aaron Rodgers to a broken collarbone — and a day after losing his backup to a groin injury and watching the third-stringer throw a pair of interceptions in a loss to the Eagles — FOX Sports NFL Insider Alex Marvez reports the Green Bay Packers are bringing back Matt Flynn.

Flynn was cut by Buffalo on Nov. 4. Later that night, Rodgers was knocked out of the Monday night game against Chicago. Speculation of a reunion between the team and Flynn began immediately, with Packers head coach Mike McCarthy even being asked about Flynn during the postgame news conference, before the severity of Rodgers’ injury was even known.

The Bills were the fourth team for Flynn, who was signed by the Seahawks as a free agent before the 2012 season but lost the starting job to then-rookie Russell Wilson before Week 1. Prior to this season, he was traded to the Raiders, but Oakland released him on Oct. 7 after one start — a 24-14 loss to Washington. He was on Buffalo a week later, but was let go less than a month later.

Flynn began his career in Green Bay, selected in the seventh round of the 2008 Draft. He started only two games in his four seasons in Green Bay, and in his final game there he set or tied franchise records with 480 yards and six TDs in a Week 17 win over Detroit.

After that season, Seattle signed him to a three-year, $26 million contract.
