The Green Bay Packers, who are down to their third-string quarterback, will sign Matt Flynn, ESPN reported Monday.
Flynn had one outstanding game at the end of the 2011 season for the Packers. Since leaving Green Bay as an unrestricted free agent, Flynn has been traded by the Seattle Seahawks and released by the Oakland Raiders and Bills in the past 18 months. He was unclaimed off waivers last week when released by Buffalo.
Flynn worked out for the Packers on Monday.
The Packers lost starter Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) and backup Seneca Wallace (groin) to injuries in back-to-back games. Wallace was replaced Sunday by Scott Tolzien, who was already named the starter for Sunday's game against the New York Giants by coach Mike McCarthy.
General manager Ted Thompson took the blame publicly for the Packers finding themselves in their current predicament at quarterback.
Speculation that the Packers were interested in bringing back Flynn mounted not long after Rodgers fractured his collarbone last Monday night in a loss to the Bears. Flynn was Rodgers' primary backup with the Packers before fleeing as a free agent.
Tolzein is the only healthy quarterback on the roster. He was promoted from the practice squad last week after Rodgers was injured.
