Packers Don't Use Franchise Tag

by

GREEN BAY, WI (WSAU) The Green Bay Packers will settle for a possible compensatory draft pick in 2013, for letting quarterback Matt Flynn go. The Packers did not use its franchise tag on Flynn – or anybody else for that matter, after yesterday’s N-F-L deadline for using the tags.

There was talk that general manager Ted Thompson would franchise Flynn, and see if he could make a trade – even though the fourth-year pro is expected to leave as a free agent, to try and win a starting job somewhere else. His agent said the franchise tag would have limited the number of teams Flynn could pursue – and if a trade had not worked out, the Packers would have been stuck paying Aaron Rodgers’ back-up 14-point-four million dollars this year.

If Flynn does well someplace else, the Packers would get as high as a third-round compensatory pick next year.
