Update: It’s official now, with the Raiders giving up a fifth-round pick in the 2014 draft, and a conditional pick in 2015.

Matt Flynn is likely, probably, almost definitely about to get a real chance to be a starting quarterback in the NFL. It’s just too bad that he’ll have to do it in Oakland.

Continuing a series of quarterback transactions over the past few days that — while quite notable — have been entirely expected, the Raiders and Seahawks are reportedly about to complete a trade which will send Flynn to Oakland in exchange for multiple picks, according to Jay Glazer. The exact value of the picks still isn’t known yet, but Glazer reports they’ll be spread over the next two drafts in 2014 and 2015, and they’ll come in the later rounds. If that is indeed the final compensation, then this could become a shrewd rebuilding move by Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie. He’s buying low on Flynn’s potential and paying little, while therefore risking little.

Arizona Cardinals v Seattle Seahawks

According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, the Buffalo Bills, Jacksonville Jaguars and Oakland Raiders have shown interest inĀ  Seattle Seahawks backup quarterback Matt Flynn.

Flynn signed a free agent deal with the Seattle Seahawks in the last off season with the expectations that he would be the Seahawks’ starting QB, only to lose his job to rookie Russell Wilson.

Flynn only appeared in 3 games with the Seahawks last season, completing 5 passes on 9 attempts for 68 yards.
