Quarterback Matt Flynn, once penciled in as a starter for both the Seattle Seahawks and Oakland Raiders, found a new home today, signing with the Buffalo Bills. It’s Flynn’s 3rd team in six months.

Flynn, a former LSU quarterback that led the Tigers to a national championship in 2007, agreed to a contract with the Bills after working out of the club over the weekend. While details of the contract are unknown, Flynn’s contract with Oakland called for $6.5 million this year. Any money the Bills pay Flynn this season, will come off of Oakland’s books, and they won’t have to pay it. In other words, Flynn will make the same amount of money in Buffalo as he would if he had stayed home for the rest of this season.

Buffalo’s rookie first round draft pick EJ Manuel is currently out with a knee injury. Thad Lewis, a 2nd year QB out of Duke, started in Manuel’s place yesterday, but injured his foot in an overtime loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. Lewis claims he’ll be okay for next week’s matchup in Miami versus the Dolphins. He is expected to make his second straight start.
