NFL Free Agents 2012: Matt Flynn Not Helping Rams Trade Second Pick, Thanks Matt Flynn

The Cleveland Browns will make a run at Green Bay Packers quarterback Matt Flynn, says one report.

NFL handicappers have given the Cleveland Browns the best odds as the likely trade partner for the St. Louis Rams' second pick in the draft. That could change if the Browns might prefer Green Bay Packers free agent quarterback Matt Flynn over Baylor rookie Robert Griffin III. According to a report in the Canton Repository, a repository of information, the Browns will pursue Flynn to fill their quarterback need.

That could change the trade mathematics for the Rams, if the Browns can actually land him.

The Canton Repository report ultimately thinks the Browns will be bested in their quest for Flynn, by the Miami Dolphins. Steve Doerschuk, the reporter, says that the Browns will stick to a budget in their pursuit of Flynn, which could hinder their efforts. Cleveland has around $30 million in cap space.

Green Bay could tag and trade Flynn, which would require a team to surrender draft picks and a sizable chunk of money to acquire him.

If Cleveland stands pat with Colt McCoy, Pat Shurmur will be the next branch to fall off the Andy Reid coaching tree. Mike Holmgren, the man who took over pulling Shurmur's strings after Steve Spagnuolo, may also get das boot if they fail to put that franchise in the right direction this year. They need a quarterback.

The Browns make the most attractive trade partner for the Rams with their two first-round picks. Were the Browns to get Flynn, it means one less RG3 suitor. Washington and Miami would be in the mix at that point, depending on whether or not one of those teams lure Peyton Manning.
