Packers backup QB Matt Flynn let go

Tuesday March 6th, 2012

The Green Bay Packers have let backup quarterback Matt Flynn become an unrestricted free agent, according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

Flynn has been targeted by several teams -- including Miami Dolphins wide receiver Brandon Marshall -- and now he has the ability to choose his destination.

Free agency begins March 13. Flynn has played sparingly as Aaron Rodgers' backup, but he had an impressive outing New Years Day against the Detroit Lions, when he threw for 480 yards and six touchdowns.
