ESPNs Ed Werder reports that the Seattle Seahawks engaged in trade discussions involving backup QB Matt Flynn and a deal appears imminent. Werder says the trade partner with Seattle is unknown.
However, Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports that team appears to be Oakland. La Canfora also reports that the Seahawks will consider bringing in Tyler Thigpen to backup Russell Wilson if Flynn moves on.
The Seahawks have not confirmed that Flynn will be moved via trade. No word yet on the draft compensation Seattle would receive in return for Flynn.
Although the deal is not done, Seattle teammates already are wishing Flynn well with his new team.
