2nd Stringer Matt Flynn Gets Another Shot in Buffalo

The Buffalo Bills signed free agent quarterback Matt Flynn. They are thin at that position after Thad Lewis suffered a sprained knee during the team’s loss to the Bengals. Lewis was in from the practice squad for the injured rookie E.J. Manuel.

Both of those signal callers went down with knee injuries, although Thad Lewis’ x-rays were negative. Right now, the Bills are looking at the undrafted rookie Jeff Tuel who really struggled in his only appearance this season.

Flynn, who was signed on Monday, is on his fourth team since being drafted out of LSU. He’s most known for his big game in the season finale against the Detroit Lions in 2011, when he was a member of the Green Bay Packers.

Flynn was then picked up by the Seattle Seahawks in 2012 when Russell Wilson won the starting job. In 2013, he went to the Oakland Raiders and lost the job to Terrelle Pryor.

Buffalo would seem like his last place to earn a roster spot, if given the opportunity. If Lewis is cleared to play however, he will probably get the nod. Lewis played a great game during Week 6 against a very good Bengals defense.
