For Flynn, the decision could come down to staying to back up Rodgers in Green Bay, which he called his football “home,” or chasing another chance to start elsewhere and prove that what happened in Seattle and Oakland didn’t define him.
“That’s a good question. It’s something I’ve tried to not think about. I’ve had a big job on my hands the past couple weeks,” Flynn said. “I’m happy to be here right now. There’s always going to be – I don’t know how I’m going to feel in a couple months – but I know there’s definitely going to be a part of me that would love to stay here. It’s comfortable, and I love it here. There’s definitely going to be some soul searching that I’ll have to do after the season.”
Until then, though, Flynn will go back to being Rodgers’ backup, consigliere, and friend – and keep enjoying the ride.
“I’m having a blast,” he said. “There were some periods of time that really tested my love for the game. And it’s been a blast being here. We’ve always treaded that line of, not goofing around, but enjoying work. But it always seems to be that we can enjoy work but then get down to business. I think Aaron’s the leader of that. He likes to goof around with the best of them.
“I’m proud of the body of work and the things that we were able to accomplish, and personally that I was able to accomplish. I was proud of the things that I did, and the team did. It’s been a fun couple weeks, a fun ride. I’m soaking up every moment.”
