Just like Aaron Rodgers and Matt Hasselbeck who were stuck behind Brett Favre in Green Bay, Matt Flynn has decided he didn’t want to be an NFL backup quarterbcak any longer.

The Seattle Seahawks have signed the former LSU star and hopes he becomes a long-tern franchise quarterback.

The Seahawks reached a contract agreement with Flynn on a three-year deal and rescued him from being a backup to Rodgers.

The 26-year-old has career stats of 9 touchdowns and 5 interceptions with 1,015 passing yards and a QB rating of 92.8.

Flynn earned a Super Bowl ring in Super Bowl XLV.

Contract details were not revealed, but information on facebook, twitter and the internet, reveal that the total is up to $24 million.

Surprising Seahawks dethrone Saints; advance in playoffs

Marshawn Lynch (file photo)

The Seattle Seahawks dethroned the defending world champion New Orleans Saints behind the running of Marshawn Lynch, who galloped to a game-clinching 67-yard touchdown run leading to a 41-36 win.

Seahawks QB Matt Hasselbeck threw four touchdown passes to set a franchise playoff record.

The Seahawks were considered underdogs all week by the national press and the oddsmakers, the first NFL team with a losing record ever to win a division title, went out and earned their way to a fifth consecutive home playoff win and will play this week in the divisional playoffs.

The 67-yard run was the longest touchdown run by any Seahawk since 2005.

Seahawks acquire Marshawn Lynch to help anemic running attack

The Seattle Seahawks run game has struggled through four games, ranking 27th with 79.5 yards per game. In three games, Seattle was held below 80 yards rushing, which put pressure on quarterback Matt Hasselback to throw the ball down the field.

Without a clear-cut number 1 running back, Seattle ran by committee with Justin Forsett and Julius Jones. Forsett had a season-high 19 carries and 65 yards Sunday against St. Louis.

Jones restructured his contract and took a big cut in pay before the season to return to Seattle. He carried the ball just 12 times for 30 yards all season and was inactive Sunday against St. Louis.

RB Marshawn Lynch (NFL)

To correct the ineffectiveness, the Seahawks engineered a trade with the rebuilding Buffalo Bills and have brought in Marshawn Lynch for a pair of undisclosed draft picks.

Seattle in the meantime have released Julius Jones, its leading rusher the past two years, to open up a roster spot for Lynch.

The Seahawks haven’t had a running back obtain a 1,000 yards since Shaun Alexander in 2005 when he was the NFL MVP.

Now Forsett and Lynch, Pac-10 teammates at California, are reunited in the Pac-10 city of Seattle. Lynch was a groomsman at Forsett’s wedding earlier in 2010.

The 2-2 Seahawks have a bye week this coming Sunday. They will not play again until October 17 at Chicago. So Lynch will be able to familiarize himself with the Seattle offensive playbook for the next 12 days.
