GREEN BAY, WI - The Green Bay Packers on Tuesday made their second quarterback signing over the past seven days.
Last week Scott Tolzien was promoted from the practice squad to the 53-man roster. Now Matt Flynn has been signed to serve as the team's new backup quarterback while Aaron Rodgers recovers from a broken collarbone.
To open up a roster spot for Flynn, the team placed quarterback Seneca Wallace on injured reserve. Wallace played in the team's last two games, starting this past Sunday's game against Philadelphia before leaving with a groin injury following Green Bay's first possession.
Flynn, a sixth-year player out of Louisiana State, was originally drafted by the Packers in the seventh round of the 2008 NFL Draft. During his time in Green Bay, he completed 82 of 132 passes for 1,015 yards and nine touchdowns with five interceptions.
Flynn left Green Bay and signed with Seattle as a free agent in 2012. He has spent time with Oakland and Buffalo in 2013 prior to signing back with the Packers.
Flynn will wear jersey number 10 for the Packers. Wide receiver Chris Harper will now wear number 13.
