"I don't know exactly what the reason was. Why it didn't work ... it just didn't work," Allen said about Flynn on Monday. "Terrelle came in and took over the job."
This is an embarrassing moment for Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie. The former Green Bay Packers staffer gave up a fifth-round draft pick in 2014 for Flynn and handed him more than $6 million for the 2013 season. McKenzie also drafted quarterback Tyler Wilson in the fourth round; Wilson didn't make the team out of training camp.
Flynn looked effective when given the chance to play behind Aaron Rodgers in 2011. After failed tenures in Seattle and Oakland, we can't imagine Flynn having another chance to compete for a starting job.
