The New England Patriots and Matt Flyn have agreed to a one year contract that will see the veteran quarterback play for the Patriots, Adam Schefter, an ESPN NFL Insider reported. According to the report, the deal between Flynn and the Patriots is a one-year contract that will see him bring the much-needed experience for the team.
The move by the Patriots to sign up Flynn, who comes with eight years worth of experience came in the same day that the team released Garrett Gilbert, who was their third quarterback.
With Flynn on board, the New England Patriots have assured that they will have a reliable quarterback in an event that their first choice quarterback Tom Brady cannot play for any particular reason (for instance the recent expansion). At the moment the team has a very powerful quarterback lineup with Tom Brady leading the way, followed by Jimmy Garoppolo and then the veteran QB Flynn who will be turning 30 come June 20th.
Brady will not be featuring for the New England Patriots first four match ups with other teams come the regular season due to the fact that he has been suspended by the league. At the moment it is highly likely that both Flynn and Garoppolo will play a big role so as for the New England Patriots to have a good start in the season’s opening games.
Tom Brady is set to challenge the suspension that was handed out by the league on him and if successful he might just feature for Patriots in their opener.
