Former Tiger Flynn signs with Patriots
FOXBOROUGH, MA - Former LSU Tiger Quarterback Matt Flynn has signed with the New England Patriots, per ESPN's Dianna Russini on Twitter.
Flynn has been a back-up for his entire NFL career but could see playing time this year. Patriots' Quarterback Tom Brady was suspended four games for his role in the "Deflate-gate" scandal, but he is appealing that decision.
Flynn played for LSU from 2003-2007 and was the MVP of the Tigers' BCS National Championship win over Ohio State his senior season. He threw 4 TD's in that game.
In seven NFL seasons, Flynn has thrown 17 TD's against 11 INT's for the Green Bay Packers, Seattle Seahawks, Oakland Raiders and Buffalo Bills.
If Brady's suspension is upheld, Flynn will compete with another former SEC quarterback, Ryan Mallett from the University of Arkansas, for the starting gig.
