    Citing league sources, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Packers are "unlikely" to place the franchise tag on impending free agent Matt Flynn.

    The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel and SI's Peter King had previously suggested that franchising Flynn would at least be a consideration for the Packers, in an effort to pull a sign-and-trade deal. Instead,

    Green Bay's franchise tag figures to be used on Jermichael Finley.

    This would make Flynn easier for teams like the Seahawks and Redskins to acquire. He isn't going to cost a draft pick

    why would he come here to be a backup when Washington, Seattle, and Cleveland are going to offer him a starting job.

    Doesn't matter, unless Romo suffers a major injury between now and the beginning of March. There will be a bidding war between teams who want him to be the starter. We wouldn't pay him starter money to be the back up, and he wouldn't come here knowing he would be the back up.

    Despite the crazy stats, I'm not seeing a top QB in Flynn. I was disappointed once I actually saw the Detroit game. He's kind of a lumbering player. He'd die behind our OL.

    He's Kevin Kolb. Let Washington sign him and continue to suck.
