Flynn set Packers records with 480 passing yards and six touchdowns in the team's 2011 season-ending victory over the Detroit Lions.
When it comes to whether Flynn has a possibility to get his old job back in Green Bay, Packers coach Mike McCarthy said he was happy with the quarterback situation.
"I do like Seneca Wallace," explained McCarthy. "Obviously Matt was a Packer...very fond of Matt and his time here. As far as any roster moves, any things like that, I don't have any comment."
