Seahawks set to meet with Flynn, Henne
With a 2011 team QB rating of just 77.6, it’s no shock to learn that the Seattle Seahawks are interested in making a move to land yet another signal-caller.
Could Matt Flynn wind up under center for the Seahawks in 2012?
Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting that Pete Carroll and the Seahawks are scheduled to meet with free agent quarterback Matt Flynn on Thursday night, which is expected to come on the heels of a meeting with former Dolphin Chad Henne, per Jeff Darlington of the NFL Network.
Flynn has also been linked to the Miami Dolphins, should the team fail to win the Peyton Manning sweepstakes, while Henne is also drawing some interest from the Jacksonville Jaguars. If Seattle wants to get a deal done with Flynn and thinks he could be the franchise quarterback the team has been searching for since the departure of Matt Hasselbeck, it would be wise to get the former Green Bay Packer signed before he leaves town and starts taking other visits.
Seattle came up short in the hunt for Peyton Manning and despite rumors that the team was going to make a move for free agent defensive end Mario Williams, no visit has been scheduled as of the current moment.
San Francisco has been active and the Cardinals are still going after Manning. The Seahawks may need to make some adjustments soon if they don’t want the gap in the NFC West to start widening.
