Quarterback

QB | Aaron Rodgers | Green Bay Packers | Free Agents
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers said he believes impending free-agent QB Matt Flynn would be a good fit for the Miami Dolphins because of his relationship with head coach Joe Philbin. Philbin previously served as Green Bay's offensive coordinator. "I think it kind of makes sense. Joe in that system, which I'm sure is going to be very similar to this system, and Matt having a great grasp of that and playing well in his recent opportunities. I think it would kind of make sense to bring Matt out there," Rodgers said. "I think it's a strong possibility that they (the Dolphins) would make a run at him."
