Flynn in the fold, Lattimore still unsigned
By Rob Demovsky | ESPN.com
GREEN BAY, Wis. — Matt Flynn’s signing is finally official.
The Green Bay Packers announced Tuesday what was agreed to last week, that the backup quarterback will return for a third stint with the team.
Terms of the deal still had not been filed with the NFL Players Association, but Flynn signed on Tuesday in time to take part in the start of the Packers’ offseason program.
The Packers have the same three quarterbacks — Aaron Rodgers, Scott Tolzien and Flynn – on their roster that they had at the end of last season. Flynn spent his first four seasons (2008-11) with the Packers. He left in free agency the following offseason and after stints with the Seahawks, Raiders and Bills, he re-signed last November.
While Flynn was able to join the Packers for the start of their offseason workouts, restricted free-agent linebacker Jamari Lattimore also apparently has done so even though he has not yet signed his tender offer, which is worth $1.431 million. Restricted free agents can still accept offer sheets from other teams through May 2, but the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported Lattimore did report to team workouts under a participation agreement.
Lattimore’s agents, Tony Agnone and Richard Rosa, did not return messages left on Tuesday seeking comment on their client’s plans.
