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.by
