Ben Volin of the Palm Beach Post writes that Matt Flynn didn’t waste any time after an overnight flight from Seattle put him into Miami early this morning.
Volin reports according to Flynn’s father, Alvin Flynn, that the Green Bay quarterback arrived around 5 or 6 a.m. Miami time to take a physical with the team’s medical staff, and met with Dolphins’ official after that.
Volin reports that it was Flynn’s intention to visit both teams first before making his decision, and that according to his father, he wants to make a decision sometime this weekend.
“He said it was a really nice place, and he enjoyed it,” Flynn’s father, Alvin, told the Post about Seattle. “But he wanted to look at both of them. That was the way he felt going in.”
