Former Green Bay Packers backup quarterback Matt Flynn is being courted by the Miami Dolphins.

Flynn visited the Dolphins on Saturday after they were eliminated from consideration by Peyton Manning. Flynn was a backup the past four years for Green Bay, where his offensive coordinator was Joe Philbin, the Dolphins' new head coach.

Miami added former New York Jets linebacker Jamaal Westerman, who tweeted that he signed with the team. Westerman, a pass-rush specialist, had 3 1/2 sacks last year.

Flynn has only two career NFL starts, but in last year's regular-season finale he set franchise records with 480 yards passing and six touchdowns to help the Packers beat Detroit 45-41. He visited the Seattle Seahawks earlier this week.
