Seahawks QB Matt Flynn Says He Has No Regrets About Not Signing With Miami
Had he chosen differently in March, Matt Flynn could be preparing to face the Seattle Seahawks this week, instead of serving as the team’s backup quarterback when they travel to Miami on Sunday.
“I wouldn’t say it was hard, but I wouldn’t say it was easy,” Flynn said about picking Seattle over Miami. “I kind of took it with an open mind. I didn’t want to lean one way or another when I looked into it. And I just wanted to get my feel for what I thought would be the best spot.”
After making visits to Seattle and Miami, Flynn signed a three-year, $19.5 million deal with the Seahawks because from his perspective, the team made the best offer and provided what he considered at the time the best situation to begin his career as a starting quarterback.
But, as Flynn admits, Seattle coach Pete Carroll was upfront in telling him that he would have to earn the job as the starter and a surprising thing happened during training camp – the five-year veteran was beaten out by third-round draft pick Russell Wilson. Flynn has not played a single snap for his new team in a regular-season game but says he does not have second thoughts about his decision to move to Seattle.
“I try to have the motto of living life with no regrets,” Flynn said. “I wouldn’t take anything back. I think I look back at the things I looked at, and the personal things I decided on, and I think I wouldn’t take anything back. I don’t have any regrets about it, but it was a tough decision, for sure.”
