Jaguars not interested in Matt Flynn

Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

Matt Flynn is now a free agent, but don't expect him to land in Jacksonville.

With Blaine Gabbert possibly out for an extended period of time due to a hamstring injury, the Jaguars could be in the market for a backup quarterback. If Jacksonville does sign someone, it won't be Matt Flynn.

Flynn was released by the Raiders on Monday and has ties to the Jaguars having played in Seattle for a year while Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley was with the Seahawks. Bradley, however, indicated the Jaguars haven't discussed Flynn since right after he was first hired.

"No interest," Bradley said when he was asked about Flynn on Monday, via Big Cat Country.

Having watched Flynn in practice for a year, Bradley knows the strengths and weaknesses of the 28-year-old quarterback. Gabbert has already been ruled out of Week 6 and could miss several weeks according to some reports. Jacksonville could sign a different quarterback, but for now Chad Henne will handle the starting duties while Ricky Stanzi will take over as the No. 2.

Although the Jaguars aren't interested, Flynn could draw interest from other teams. He spent four years in Green Bay and the Packers have shuffled backup quarterbacks multiple times this season.
