A joke, right?

There has been online talk about the Packers putting a franchise tag on Flynn then trade him. It doesn't sound like a bad move to me.

Franchise tag for a QB is way too expensive. I dont see it happening

True if there is no interest on Flynn. However with many teams needing a QB, it might work out very well. What it translates to is Flynn will have $14 million guaranteed contract. If Fitzpatrick can get more than that guaranteed, Flynn can get it. And the reward for taking on the low risk is for the Packers to get a second-round pick at minimum. Who knows they might get a top-10 pick with that kind of move.

paying a guy 14 million dollars after having only 2 nfl starts is borderline retarded

That I agree totally, but just like Hollywood, NFL teams are often run by desperate people.
For me I see Flynn as another Kolb probably better then Kolb but still a similar guy in terms of him knowing the system he's coming from and executing. Not having 7 great targets to throw to will bring Flynn down to earth and end up being considered a dissapointment like Kolb. For me if this guy comes out of his comfort zone and is asked to carry a team, forgetaboutit.

How may times do rarely used back ups have a few good games and then get crowned the next elite QB? Flynn has throw the equivalent of 4 full games of passes in 4 years. Quite often back ups can have short term success because lack of film against NFL defenses hasn't allowed defensive coordinators adequate time to expose their weaknesses.

I think, but I am positive, this would be risky.

If he signs the franchise tender, his money is guaranteed.

They can not trade him unless he signs.

If they can not make a trade, they have to pay up.
Psssst.....It's the receivers and the system...not the QB.

6 Tds and 500 yards passing, its gotta be all the receivers and system. Any scrub QB can look better than Joe Montana and Dan Marino combined.
This guy is about to "Kevin Kolb" someone or "rob johnson" someone.
