Patriots Sign QB

We start off in the NFL, where the Patriots have decided to sign former Green Bay Packers quarterback Matt Flynn. Flynn will come in and challenge with Jimmy Garoppolo for the starting spot as Tom Brady sits out the first four games.

The agreement to sign Flynn came on the same day that the Patriots released their former third choice quarterback Garrett Gilbert, a first-year player out of Southern Methodist who was drafted in the 6th round.

The 29-year old Flynn was most recently in his second stint with the Green Bay Packers, while he has also spent time with the Seattle Seahawks, Oakland Raiders and Buffalo Bills.
