    First off, personally I wouldn't resign Finley. He's kinda like a square peg in a round hole for the Packers. He has a diva attitude as opposed to every other player on the receiving core. He's going to command A LOT of money, that could be spent elsewhere (pass rusher, beefing up O-line or D-line, etc) and the biggest reason he couldn't catch a cold in a Dr. waiting room. Week after week, he has shown he's not a dependable receiving TE. I'd rather take a flyer on Coby Fleener, TE, Stanford or Tyler Eifert, TE, Notre Dame. Either or both should be available in the 3rd-4th rounds.

    I don't see us franchising Flynn, this is how both franchise tags work:

    Exclusive: Player cannot negotiate with other teams and his salary is the greater of 1) 120% of previous year's salary or 2) average salary of the top 5 players playing the same position from the current year.
    Non-exclusive: Salary terms are the same except it's the average of the top 5 players from the previous year. Player can negotiate with other teams but current team reserves the right to match the offer. If it doesn't match the offer, it receives two first-round draft picks.
    Taking into consideration these conditions, I don't see us franchising Flynn. We are more likely to franchise Finley and give him another year in GB to prove his worth than using it on a backup QB

    You would want to pay him the average of the top 5 QBs just to get a 2nd rounder out of him? No that will not be happening.

    Thank you for clearing that up for me.

    I feel really stupid having brought this idea up. You are certainly correct, no way the Packers or anyone else will pay top 5 money for Flynn.

    Anyway, my goal is to acquire a top notch OLB in the draft, and with teams like Dallas and NE ahead of us I'd like to move up 10 spots. I can just see the Patriots taking an OLB that we need.

    Scotland Yard, don't worry about it. :) It would be nice to keep Flynn, but I think he's gone. Hopefully he'll get a shot at being a starter somewhere else. :tup:

    I was also wondering if Holmgren might be interested in Flynn.

    Mike should keep him and have him start more games or give him more playing time.

    I do like Flynn though a lot. Very much so.

    The Jets might want to take a long look at Matt Flynn.

    I'd take Willis right now for Flynn since we have no control over where he goes.

    The thing is, that really makes the most sense for the Pack considering the state of their defense. I seriously doubt the Niners would give him up though. Maybe?

    Now what do you do... he probably just performed his way into a huge contract... and deserves it!!
    I agree, he will command a ton of money and we will not get anything in return.
    But, he deserves it!!
    Ya, Andrew Luck Who??? I'd be more inclined to take a proven experienced QB than a Question Mark.
    He will get a lot of attention from a lot of teams looking for a QB

    Flynn will be good for any team that has a good h.c. and weapons those are key things,of course they are saying with the q.b.s in the draft they won't look to pay for Flynn so maybe we get to keep him,and Nealson .

    I was a tad disappointed in Flynn today. He could have at least trimmed up that beard a little knowing he was going to start.
