Oakland's second-year general manager Reggie McKenzie has stripped the team down to the bare bones in hopes of getting the salary cap straightened out, and now is on the verge of bringing in Flynn.
With the acquisition of Flynn, Oakland will most likely release quarterback Carson Palmer to create a roster spot and some cap room while Terrelle Pryor becomes the primary backup.
Flynn, formerly a seventh round pick of the Green Bay Packers, signed with Seattle before last season with the idea of becoming a starter. However, Flynn lost the quarterback competition to Russell Wilson, who led the team to the NFC Divisional playoffs.
