When the Seattle Seahawks signed former Green Bay Packers quarterback Matt Flynn to a three year, $26 million contract this offseason, it was widely assumed he would take the starting quarterback job from incumbent Tarvaris Jackson.

Not so fast.

According to a report from ESPN's John Clayton, Flynn has shown "nothing special" so far in the Seahawks' minicamp, meaning that Jackson will enter the team's full training camp as the team's starter. Jackson is coming off the best season of his professional career, completing 60 percent of his passes for over 3,000 yards in 2011-2012.
