The Jaguars explored acquiring Matt Flynn but at least for now have decided not to continue a pursuit for the Seattle Seahawks’ backup quarterback. Although no door is completely shut in trying to improve the roster, it appears unlikely the Jaguars will relinquish a draft pick to get Flynn. Flynn and the Jaguars were linked in a CBS Sports report earlier this week listing them along with Buffalo and Oakland as potential trading partners with Seattle. Because new Jaguars coach Gus Bradley was formerly Seattle’s defensive coordinator and the Jaguars’ quarterback spot has been declared an open competition, the obligatory dots were connected. Flynn would have made sense in the fact he would have challenged Blaine Gabbert and Chad Henne, guaranteeing a spirited training camp competition. But the move would have been questionable since the Jaguars are committed to building through the draft and Flynn’s contract carries salary cap numbers of $7.25 million this year and $8.25 million in 2014. A trade is the only way to acquire Flynn since Seattle has stated it won’t release him despite his salary.
Jaguars, for now, won't be in like Flynn
