Matt Flynn could end up in Green Bay after all.

The former No. 2 quarterback behind Aaron Rodgers will work out for the Packers “at some point soon” reported’s Ian Rapoport. While Rapoport’s comments are nothing new they echo statements from ESPN’s Ed Werder who noted that the Packers would sign Flynn if they felt he was healthy.


Werder also ruled out a reunion between the Packers and Vince Young.

The Packers appear set to go with Seneca Wallace under center again on Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles. Scott Tolzien has been promoted from the practice squad to No. 2 on the depth chart.

While Rodgers will miss Sunday’s game there is no clear timetable on his return.

MATTHEWS: LB ready to go on Sunday

Flynn has been released by both the Oakland Raiders and Buffalo Bills since the start of the season. In two games this season Flynn was 22-of-34 for 246 yards with a touchdown and interception. While his completing percentage (64.7) will come across as nice its largely because Flynn opted to dump the ball off rather then throw down field during his lone start for the Raidres on Sept. 29 against a porous Washington Redskins defense.

The Buffalo Bills opted to start Jeff Tuel last week over Flynn. They subsequently released him after the game.
