The NFL has a reputation as a copy-cat league. If one team has proven effective in a certain area, why wouldn't another team mimic that success?
The favorite for his services might be the Jacksonville Jaguars where new head coach and former Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley "definitely likes" Flynn. Other possibilities include the Cleveland Browns and New York Jets to compete with unproven quarterbacks Brandon Weeden and Mark Sanchez, respectively.
As Around The League's Gregg Rosenthal points out, one potential hang-up to a Flynn trade is his salary of $5.25 million. Will a team be willing to give up a draft pick and big money for a player who might not even start? Flynn's most recent game film is from a disappointing preseason while Alex Smith's 2012 tape sold offensive guru Andy Reid in Kansas City.
