Flynn to visit Seattle hoping to increase market value

There's been a lot of information (and misinformation) about Matt Flynn and the market for him as a potential starting quarterback the past two days.

The truth?

He is scheduled to visit the Seattle Seahawks on Friday. It doesn't mean he's going to necessarily sign there. But this is clearly the most attention any team has shown the Green Bay Packers free agent.

I would say the team to show the next most amount of attention is the Dolphins. But even Miami has not offered Flynn a contract with an option for him to sign. That report was false. As I wrote yesterday, the Dolphins touched base with Flynn, sure. But contract offer? Nope.

That would defeat the purpose of getting Peyton Manning.

The Cleveland Browns apparently didn't offer any sort of contract, either, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Again, a report yesterday stated the Browns were trying to sign Flynn. That report was false, I have confirmed.

The Seattle attention of Flynn is understandable and expected. Seattle general manager John Schneider was with Green Bay when Flynn was drafted. Schneider knows and likes Flynn.

One thing: I do not believe Flynn is immediately going to get a huge contract offer from anyone. The truth is the Dolphins are still hoping to land Manning and they won't be in full blown desperation mode unless and until Manning goes elsewhere.

And until at least two teams are bidding for Flynn the full potential of his market won't be reached. His agent knows this. Or should.

The Seahawks are also scheduled to host a visit by Chad Henne. He is visiting tonight and tomorrow.

Phins78 said he was out, yet is here still rambling? Do you have amnesia too? For the love of pete!

Laurent Robinson is HAPPY with Jacksonville's offer. It has now come down to whether he wants to LIVE in Jacksonville.

I don't know what the offer was, but if I was Miami I would immediately call his agent and tell him you will at the very least match the offer IF it is reasonable.

Who would want to live in Jacksonville?

"According to the Florida Times-Union, money is not an issue in the Jaguars discussions with free agent Laurent Robinson.
In other words, the Jaguars are prepared to satisfy Robinson's contract demands. The only issue is if Robinson is prepared to play in Jacksonville. We suspect the sides will hammer out a deal, as the Miami Herald previously reported Robinson was only interested in visiting the Dolphins if a contract couldn't be squared away with the Jags."

If Robinson signs with the Jaguars then we'll all know that we're a joke & that we should expect another pathetic season from the incompetents in charge.

NH, first, I didn't say a team HAD to have a cancer (what I said was it seemed many cancers were HOF'ers, and most SB winning teams needed HOF'ers).

However, I know Osi gave them heartburn at the beginning of the year (so I'd say him). Also know they had some issues with Nicks. Other than that, I wouldn't know, they're not my team so I don't know their in's and out's. Oh, there's Brandon Jacobs, but they got rid of him.

f***ING CONDESCEND TO ME YOU STUPID F***ING A**HOLE?! Go change your f***ing name now and follow me around the net you stupid troll.

Dude, change your tampon! If I were to change my name to haunt anyone, rest assured, your pee brain is not the 1 I'd target. Talk about a waste of time!

Move along Grumpy, Dopey is looking for you.

DC...good point, I was just giving you a poke to keep you in line;-)

I think Phins78 and Craig m are either in love , the same person, or both. Who is with me.

Cut from the same cloth. The stupid cloth! LOLOLOL

Only team who Manning agreed to meet who couldn't get Manning back to their facilities is the Dolphins....hmmmm.

And Dolphins still think they are in it?

Also, who is Miami going to have as their #1 WR? Looks like the well is almost dry. Robinson likely won't leave Jacksonville.

Home facts on the emerging acorn:

On October 2, as the team's third receiver Robinson caught seven passes for 116 yards in a loss to the Detroit Lions. During the week eight loss against the Philadelphia Eagles, he had five catches for 103 yards and a touchdown, his first as a Cowboy. In the next game on November 6, Robinson again caught five passes 32 yards and a touchdown. Robinson followed up that game with three catches, two of which were touchdowns, against the Buffalo Bills starting in place of Miles Austin, while he was recovering from a hamstring injury. From week 8 through week 12, Laurent caught 24 passes for a total of 321 yards and 7 touchdowns.

Home Facts:

Fins working on deal w WR Robinson

Robinson averages about 16 YDs per catch and scored 11 TDs last season w the Cowboys even though he was only named a starter in 3 of the games

It's not like we're the Patriots & can afford to sit back & let the market come to us. Freaking Irleand & his acorns....How's that working out???

We've become one of the most dysfunctional organizations in the NFL. Right up there with the Redskins, the Cowboys, & the Browns. However, Ross is an even worse owner b/c at least the other three teams can sell out their games. I didn't think it was possible to have a worse owner than Huzienga but he usually got what he went after. With Ross & Ireland they have begun to alienate players & coaches from coming here. Time to cut your losses & sell Stevie boy.

Thank God Orton signed with the Cowboys...did not want to go there AGAIN!

Once Peyton decides on his future everything will happen quickly, good or bad

What I don't understand is trading Marshall without having a replacement first, WE could have signed a WR first and still traded him

Also, I don't want Tanneyhill at #8 either, too high and not sure Sherman will stake his rep on him

Phins aren't working on a deal for Robinson. They have him scheduled to visit IF he gets out of Jacksonville. He is happy with Jacksonville's offer.

IT DOESN'T LOOK GOOD!

We are a laughingstock!

Craig...sources indicate that Philbin's new WC Offense is designed to spread the ball around to many receivers & running backs.
He knew from Ireland that Marshall was a cry baby when Henne did not throw it to him on every play...the guy was unstable and unreliable in the clutch.

To boot, Marshall has never been a precise route runner, which is required in a WC scheme. It's all timing and precision.

No big loss. Whether he was starting for Austin or Bryant, he was still the 3rd option between that guy & Whitten. He was always single covered. He won't get that anymore. Alvin Harper Reincarnated!

ESPN's George Smith reporting Peyton Manning will return from Durham to Nashville to visit with #Titans at their facility. This is a slap in the face of the Dolphins. The only taem that went to Manning instead of Manning coming to them.

Hey Ringling why are we a laughing stock. I'll tell you a laughingstock is, having 36 mill reduced from your cap, having 10 mill reduced from your cap, having your GM, HC, and DC suspended.

That post makes it seem as if the phins are a joke from top to bottom. Just like I did earlier. Prepare to be blacklisted by the tampon seller, Phins78.

NHFINSFAN, they had been looking to trade him to the Bears since the combine. This trade was obviously part of a plan involving a direction they are taking offensively. They obviously didn't see Marshall fitting in.

Georgia,

Yeah Miami is so far out looking it in at this point that if they want Flynn then go get him. If they dont prioritize Flynn then fine but please move on from Manning. He clearly is not interested enough in Miami to even view their facilities.

i have to agree, completely agree, with your colleague Greg Cote: JEFF IRELAND IS MORONIC. the marshall trade just another example of his poor management skills, bad decision-making and questionable sense of right and wrong, not to mention his low class.

Robinson would have helped along with drafting Blackmon or Floyd.

grandpa is still at it! FYI pops, no GM, HC or DC has been suspended as of today. Safest bet for you is to come to grips with it. Phins are an epic failure.

Denying it only makes you look dumb!

When the hell is Peyton going to come to a decision? He's holding a lot of Teams back, including us. I'm beginning not to like this guy. He's not a World-beater, you know.

Daaah Beeearsh!

I agree NH. I get it all, Our best playmaker has been traded and we are left with nothing else at this point. I am pissed about not haveing "somthing" else also.

That being said, we also lost a guy that dropped almost as many touchdowns that he caught. He is a cancer on the practice field, and the story even assuming the agent is half right with his discription of the events. He is still facing a possible suspension, and I dont 100% believe the media nor do I believe the agent 100%. That leads me to believe disciplin will be handed down.

So even if we kept him, if we did not get manning, odds are he would end up being a bigger problem than not. So as an organization, the move made sense to me.

Lol there are a couple of things I know, one is that you're a moron, and 2 is that intelligence intimidates you. So why don't you go of to your trade school and disappear into your trailer.

AndyNJ,
Will Ross ever learn? I understand he swings for the fences but someone needs to tell him that you need a bat to hit the ball. Image and marketing is everything in sports. Once you lose your fan base, you lose your draw for the superstars in your sports. That is why the Dolphins best bet to get their QB is the draft.

i'm officially on a stick with moore path. we got 4 picks in the 1st 3 rounds the next 2 years. we can find a QB of the future in the draft. moore showed potential with no camp, no first team snaps. 6-3 down the stretch and without marshall dropping sure TD's he could have been 8-1. the fins need to stop looking like panic driving fools. stop chasing and losing. stop talking to idiots like armundo, spilling how this is top priority!! i didn't want fisher, i don't want manning but ross looks like a total moron by saying things to the press!! just like the harbaugh thing last year!! now matter what your job is can you try to at least act like you belong in it!!!

What the matter lol, someone who can string word together with punctuational is grandpa. I see how idiotic you are. You are so far off.

Phins78 is selling tampons?

The Dolphins are sinking thats ironic

Andy, I just saw your response to me from very early on. I will never say "because a guy is drafted in the 7th round he can not be good. What I was saying is we are talking throwing 50 million at a 7th round pick, picked there for a reason, and the ringing endorsement from the guy he played with was he is a top 15 guy.

50 million. It "feels" like it has disaster written all over it, I am not saying it does. But we have not seen enough of Flynn to seperate him that far from the 7th round pick. We have seen 4 games.

I hope the Titans get Manning and we get their cast-off, Hasselbeck. I'm pretty sure he knows something about the WCO (10+ years in Holmgren's system @ GB & Seattle). He would probably be a much better mentor for Moore, Devlin, or whatever QB we draft, than Manning would ever be. Just spend a few moments reflecting on the performance of Manning's back-ups through the years....not a lot of mentoring going on there.

Michael wants to be as big a dk head as Craig M. He is on his way.

The one thing that might be good about the Manning delay is that it seems the asing price for Flynn is declining.

update mando give it up!!!!!!!!!!!

lets say manning signs elsewhere, and lets say some fans negative comments on flynn are accurate, short, weak arm, inexperienced... lets say miami ponders the option to sign flynn while seriously considering a trade for ryan mallet. who would you prefer between the two? i think flynn, if surrounded with a super skilled recieving core can thrive, as would ryan mallet. of the two, RYAN MALLET offers some important qualities that flynn does NOT have, mallet has the advantage of heigth, superior arm strength, advanced schooling(brady/belicheat) coupled with great intangables(a competitive fire and lofty goals that only tom brady's presence could have created) and a burning desire(like a welker or zach thomas or even Dan Marino) had because of size or because he dropped on draft day. nonetheless, if either of these guys are wearing a dolphins helmet come september, the need for top end talent at reciever is an absolute MUST. miami's need for a reciever that can blow the top off the defense and actually CATCH the ball(ted ginn comes to mind) and create y.a.c. is gargantuen, marshall was inconsisistant(red zone) and did not possess the speed. Ross could give dolphans hope that would translate into ticket sales by signing MIKE WALLACE, this would be possible if miami signed flynn, but would the deep ball be as effective with flynn as compared to RYAN MALLET airing it out? did ross even look into what it would cost him sign ryan mallet? another reason for signing MIKE WALLACE would be to prevent the AFC east dominating patriots from becoming UNTOUCHABLE. i've already heard this nightmare scenario of WALLACE signing with the patriots a couple of times on the NFL network, if this becomes reality, ROSS should just pack it in, if we CAN'T be competitive in the offseason, what does he think the regular season is going to look like. this is a bad joke, is ross a millionaire who secretly hates the miami fan base and enjoys tourturing it with mediocre players at skilled positions for kicks? pictue this, the brady bomb to mike wallace... disgusting.

I see you changed your screen name, I was taught someone attacks you, you attack back twice as hard.

Daaaah Bears!!!

Mike, here's what I know buddy:

1. You have zero common sense.

I mean, the entire NFL & it's fans look at Miami as a joke. You fall into .01% of the population to think otherwise. You & 3 or 4 other people on this blog. You may hate it but, that's reality!

2. I haven't read anything intelligent on this blog all day. That includes from you so don't flatter yourself!

I'll go to my trailer when you go back to your mental hopital for your over due checkup.

The problem with the Dolphins are the sorry ass cry baby fans! Hell you guys act like you really know how to run a football team...that is arrogance at it's best. The loudest boo's come from the cheapest seats. If you guys know so much why the hell are you on this BLOG? You should be running the team.

Now that it looks as if we are not getting Manning, may we please move on..Now we just need to see what the Dolphins are going to do with the Flynn situation, I have the feeling they are going to go full throttle for him..Im not sold on the guy, but Im not Philbin either, and considering Seattle is interested makes me think there might be something I/We dont know.

You heard it here first: Manning will sign with Denver. We will sign Tebow.

Flynn was a seventh rounder, which might as well be equivalent of undrafted. Why on earth do any of you guys think Flynn is better than Matt Moore or even Pat Devlin?

LOL, how's about you shut your face?

And I see what you wrap yourself around. I hope you enjoy it

Michael, I didn't change my name fool. LOL

Come to grips with the fact that other people find you as dumb as I do!

I have never lived in a trailer.

Tebow to Miami! TTM!!! Tebow to Miami! TTM!!! Tebow to Miami! TTM!!! Tebow to Miami! TTM!!! Tebow to Miami! TTM!!! Tebow to Miami! TTM!!! Tebow to Miami! TTM!!! Tebow to Miami! TTM!!! Tebow to Miami! TTM!!! Tebow to Miami! TTM!!! Tebow to Miami! TTM!!! Tebow to Miami! TTM!!! Tebow to Miami! TTM!!! Tebow to Miami! TTM!!! Tebow to Miami! TTM!!! Tebow to Miami! TTM!!! Tebow to Miami! TTM!!!

Ohhhhhh Lol you're so witty, wow little kid, you should shut your pie hole ohhhhhh. Get your rock moron.

Appears Michael was also cut from the Stupid Cloth. At least he has company!

As much as I love watching him, no way this team trades for Tebow.

The question now regarding Moore (which I had not previously thought of, but another blogger mentioned), is whether or not Moore can work in Philbins offense. Im pretty much settled with Moore starting and looking in the draft for someone to groom. But it does beg to question whether Moore can run a WC style offense.

Could have fooled me. If I'm 40 your right I could probably be your grandpa little BOY.

Ohhhhhh Lol you're so witty, wow little kid, you should shut your pie hole ohhhhhh. Get your rock moron.

It's not my fault your opinion falls in the minorty. Why take it out on me? I'm just pointing it out! You can't deal with it? Not my issue, but, I'll offer you a tissue!

Miami now talking to Manningham because it looks like Robinson is going to Jacksonville.

It Sucks to Be a Miami Dolfan.

Stupid cloth.... I at least finished high school. Unlike you.
