Year after losing starting QB job in Seattle, Matt Flynn takes hold of role with Raiders

Matt Flynn is solidifying his role as starting quarterback for the Oakland Raiders one year after losing that same job in training camp in Seattle.

Flynn entered camp with the inside track over Terrelle Pryor and rookie Tyler Wilson to replace Carson Palmer in Oakland and has done nothing in the first week of camp to change that equation.

It's a far cry to what happened to Flynn a year ago in Seattle where Flynn went from coveted offseason free-agent acquisition with a $26 million contract to backing up a third-round pick in a matter of weeks at training camp.

With Russell Wilson set as starter in Seattle, Flynn was traded to Oakland in the offseason and has done his best to hold onto this opportunity to start in the NFL.
