Hi everyone! As you know, some really unexpected moves have happened this off season. Well, I am here to tell you about one trade that I think is one of the biggest this year. The Seattle Seahawks have traded backup QB Matt Flynn to the Raiders. Matt Flynn was traded for a fifth-round pick in 2014 and a conditional pick in 2015. The Raiders did an awesome job acquiring Flynn, but I can’t say the same for the Seahawks. Matt Flynn, who has only started two games in his five seasons in the NFL, signed a 2-year deal worth $6.5 million. I think this was the best trade because he was a very good QB when he scored 52 points in one game with the Green Bay Packers. When the Packers decided to trade him, I was in shock. I thought that they would keep him for at least another year in order to see what they could get out of him. With his talent, maybe Matt Flynn can be a new Aaron Rodgers or even Peyton Manning. You never know!
