QB Matt Flynn Signs With Patriots
On June 23rd Patriots QB Tom Brady has his suspension hearing with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell. Today the Patriots say they have signed backup QB Matt Flynn.
Is there a connection?
Brady is facing a four game suspension and the backup quarterback is second year man Jimmy Garoppolo. So the Flynn signing is adding some veteran depth to the position.
Flynn is now 30-years-old and is an eight year veteran. He has had stints with Green Bay, Seattle, Oakland and Buffalo.
ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting it is a one year deal with the Patriots.
NOTE: You hear New England Patriots football on Sports Radio 92.9. The broadcast schedule begins Thursday, August 13th with the preseason opener vs Green Bay.
