Aside from Peyton Manning, the only other quarterback on the free agent market to draw significant interest has been Matt Flynn, who has spent his entire career thus far as the backup in Green Bay.

Miami, Cleveland, and Seattle seemed to be the leaders for his services going into free agency, and according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Seahawks are Flynn’s pick for where he’ll play going forward, signing a three year, $26 million contract with Seattle today. The deal reportedly includes $10 million in guaranteed money.

Flynn has shown flashes of potential in the limited opportunities he’s had to get on the field, most recently at the end of last season, where he threw for 480 yards and six touchdowns in the final game of the 2011 campaign to give the Packers a win at home over the Lions while starter Aaron Rodgers rested for the playoffs.
