Seahawks QB Matt Flynn a Possibility for Chiefs; Wouldn’t Be the Right Fit

Seahawks QB Matt Flynn could end up with the Chiefs this offseason, according to Bill Williamson.

Flynn didn’t get much playing time this season, but set the Packers’ all-time record for touchdown passes in a game during Week 17 of the 2011 season.

Packers executive John Dorsey is the favorite to take over as the general manager in Kansas City now that the team has hired on Andy Reid, so Dorsey has a history with ex-Packer Matt Flynn.

The Chiefs have the No. 1 overall pick in the upcoming draft and without a great class of quarterbacks available, the team could be inclined to look elsewhere for talent under center while they could use the pick on another position or trade it for a solid package.

That said, Flynn’s talents aren’t suited for a west-coast offense, which Andy Reid plans to run in Kansas City. He’s more of a vertical passer who only uses his athleticism when absolutely necessary. An accurate passer, Flynn would certainly have success in Reid’s scheme, but it’d be a waste of the signal-caller’s abilities to trap him in the short-to-intermediate passing game of a west-coast scheme.
