It gives the Packers a fall back option at QB.. if Tolzien develops.. that creates a good problem. Additionally in a draft like this with several decent QB prospect in it.. may give the Packers the ability to draft and develop for the future. Murray comes to mind.. Mettenburg.. a slew in that category.

Even if he did get a little more money than he probably deserves, who cares. It's not going to impact anything. The Packers almost always have money to sign players. They just prefer compensatory draft picks and resigning their own guys.

With that being said, how would this signing impact next year's compensatory picks?

Count me as a fan of this signing. I like Flynn, and I believe he is capable of producing at a very high level if needed. Just what you want at backup QB. Plus, he and Rodgers are good friends. That chemistry is good.

re signing your own FA doesn't factor into compensatory picks. The point of the system is to somewhat compensate for losing good players from your team.

Was only a matter of time, no way Ted was going to let Matt Flynn go to New York, not after last year.

Matt may have received a little more money with the planned trip to New York, if so, good for him.

Solid backup while Tolzien keeps developing.

Now just waiting for the news Jolly and Pickett are coming back.

Hopefully Johnny is healthy again and no matter what some think, Ryan Pickett's veteran leadership will be worth any money he gets.

beast (29-Sep) : I'm not sure if it's still true, but it used to be hard to get sacks on Eli because he'd toss one up when linemen got semi-close (which lead
Zero2Cool (29-Sep) : Slam Eli a lot very early. Once rattled he can't regain composure.
beast (29-Sep) : since slot WRs might be the Packers strength depth/talent wise
beast (29-Sep) : With AR's passing % down field so low, I've been saying they should go with short passes like the Pats used to do, especially since slot WRs
beast (29-Sep) : What's going to be needed against the Giants is OL and DBs (IMO)
Smokey (28-Sep) : Cook(TE) has time to heal, but may not be needed against NYG on Oct 9th .
Zero2Cool (27-Sep) : . Aaron Rodgers has a completion percentage of 33.3 on 10+ air yard passes this season (tied for the lowest in NFL).
