Bet on it. The scary thing is an awesome Seattle team with a more experienced Wilson getting a 2nd round pick.

Outside of this board, do people actually think highly think of a late round backup with a Philly Kevin Kolb sample size?


Kevin Kolb had a much bigger sample size. Twice as many attempts, and twice as much yardage, in significantly more playing time, including starts mid-season, rather than at the end of the year, before each was signed to their current squad.

Wilson has virtually no impact on their salary cap, they can keep an overpaid backup. If teams want Flynn, it's gonna cost them


You just outlined *why* they'll drop Flynn. The have a quarterback, and he's eating up 7 million in cap room that can cover the cost of a new backup and be used to improve/solidify the remainder of the roster.

Seattle can position itself to make a real splash this offseason, between cap carryover, and the space they can generate by dropping Flynn. At the very least, they can rework contracts for their core players.

They wouldn't save much space by cutting Flynn.

It would be a $6 million just thrown away in order to save $1.25 million over 2 years. Add in the cost of another QB, and keeping Flynn makes WAY more sense than cutting him. If they trade him they only lose $2 million in cap space
