The Green Bay Packers sound sold on keeping Matt Flynn around to back up Aaron Rodgers.

Coach Mike McCarthy told reporters Tuesday at the NFL Annual Meeting that the team wants to re-sign Flynn, according to Mike Vandermause of the Green Bay Press-Gazette.

McCarthy said he felt "great respect and admiration" for the 28-year-old journeyman who played in five games for the Packers after being released by both the Oakland Raiders and Buffalo Bills during a rocky sixth season in the NFL.

Flynn finished 2-2-1 in place of the injured Rodgers, exhibiting streaky play from wire to wire.
