The New England Patriots are looking to add quarterback depth following the four-game suspension of starter Tom Brady.
Brady was suspended after being ruled to likely have played a role in the DeflateGate scandal, and Jimmy Garoppolo is set to take over as the starter.
However, this may not be a done deal as the Patriots have brought in Matt Flynn, who will likely provide competition.
He has spent most of his career as a backup quarterback for the Green Bay Packers, and he has made a few spot starts for them while shining in relief.
He threw 480 yards and six touchdown passes in one game against the Detroit Lions in 2011 before cashing in with the Seattle Seahawks, but he was unable to beat out Russell Wilson for the starting job.
He became a journeyman backup before settling in with the Packers again and keeping their 2013 season alive after Aaron Rodgers injured his collarbone.
Flynn’s starting experience will undoubtedly come in handy for the Patriots, especially if Garoppolo struggles out of the gate.
The Patriots will look to keep the beginning of their season afloat as they defend their Super Bowl title.
