A source has told ESPN former Seattle Seahawks quarterback, Matt Flynn, has reached an agreement on a new contract with the Green Bay Packers. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter is reporting that Flynn, who returned to the Packers last year after both starter Aaron Rodgers and, backup Seneca Wallace went down with injuries, will compete with Scott Tolzien for the backup position this season.

In 2011 Flynn left the Packers as a free agent and signed a $26 million deal with the  Seahawks but lost out on the starting job as Russell Wilson shined during the preseason.

A year later Seattle traded Flynn to Oakland for a 2014 5th round pick and a conditional 2015 selection but the quarterback lasted just 6 months with the Raiders before being released.In October, Flynn signed with the Bills but by November was let go. That is when the Packers resigned him following Rodger’s broken collarbone and Wallace sustaining a groin injury.

In 4 games last season with Green Bay Flynn threw for 1,146 yards with seven touchdowns and four interceptions.
