The Buffalo Bills couldn’t use Flynn.

The Buffalo Bills released journeyman quarterback Matt Flynn on Monday.

A week after getting clipped by the Oakland Raiders on October 7, the 28-year-old Flynn was inked by Buffalo to get a healthy man under center.

Having never taken a snap and strictly serving as an emergency replacement for the Bills, Flynn’s now essentially been fired by three organizations over a span of seven months.

Flynn has tossed 10 touchdowns, against six interceptions, for 1,329 yards since debuting in 2008.

A good decision-maker with solid accuracy on intermediate routes, the former Tiger’s also completed 62.3% of his 175 attempts.

However, Flynn possesses feeble arm strength and was always a poor fit to operate Nathaniel Hackett’s “K-Gun” offense.

Buffalo is sitting in the basement of the AFC East at 3-6 and fielding the league’s 21st ranked offense.

Not exactly brimming with weapons, a pedestrian passer like Flynn never had a chance to succeed in the village of Orchard Park.

Bills rookie E.J. Manuel has healed from a sprained right LCL and is expected to start at Pittsburgh on Sunday.

In stark contrast to Manuel, Matt Flynn may never again step onto an NFL gridiron.
