The Raiders acquired Seattle backup Matt Flynn on Monday for draft picks, bringing an end to Carson Palmer's brief tenure as starter in Oakland even before they are done paying the steep price they dealt to acquire him.||||||| Flynn, a backup in college at LSU to former Raiders quarterback JaMarcus Russell, has started just two games in five seasons as a pro. But it's those brief appearances that intrigue many NFL teams. He threw for 251 yards and three touchdowns in a loss at New England in place of an injured Aaron Rodgers late in the 2010 season. He then started the regular-season finale the following season, going 31 for 44 for 480 yards and six touchdown passes in a 45-41 win over D

Flynn will be the Seattle backup to rookie Russell Wilson after Seahawks coach Pete Carroll announced that Wilson will start the club's opener. Wilson being named the starter leaves Flynn on the sidelines and according to Carroll understandably disappointed.||||||| Flynn was Seattle's big free-agent splash in the offseason and the most highly sought after quarterback not named Manning after spending the last few seasons as Aaron Rodgers backup in Green Bay.

Flynn says it was made completely clear before he agreed to join the Seattle Seahawks that he was going into an open competition with incumbent Tarvaris Jackson for the starting quarterback job.||||||| Flynn said during a conference call on Monday that when he visited with the Seahawks late last week, the entire situation felt comfortable and felt like the team was moving in the right direction.
