Expensive clipboard holder.
When Matt Flynn signed with the Seattle Seahawks he was supposed to be the quarterback of the future. When he was traded to the Oakland Raiders he was supposed to be the quarterback of their future.
It hasn’t quite worked out that way and now he is the No. 3 guy on the depth chart for the Raiders. While it must be disappointing for him in the end the last laugh is his.
He’s guaranteed $6.5 million—to hold a clipboard.
Allen makes it official: Matt McGloin now #Raiders backup as Matt Flynn No. 3. Re Flynn: “It is what it is. It didn’t work out,” Allen said.— Vic Tafur (@VicTafur) October 2, 2013
