Sounds like Matt Flynn heading to Oakland via trade, and Carson Palmer will be on his way out (possibly to AZ). trying to nail down details

If the Flynn to Oakland trade gets completed, as expected, look for Seattle to consider Tyler Thigpen as a back-up to Russell Wilson

Wishing Flynn the best on his endeavors in Oakland. Sad to see a friend leave, but excited for his opportunity. Great QB, even better man.

Hopefully we get some good compensation. Flynn is a good guy, best of luck to him.

So how much cap room does this open up going forward? Thats almost if not equally important to the return we get.

The Seahawks and Raiders have in fact agreed to draft-pick compensation on a tentative trade to send Matt Flynn to Oakland. Deal's close.

Albert breer reported they agreed to compensation, 2013 pick and 2014 conditional pick. Not sure which rounds yet though - looks like Thigpen or McCoy to be the backup

McCoy please, Thigpen offers nothing. McCoy tho damaged goods does have atleast slight upside.

I read on a random site that it's $7.25 million. I'm not 100% sure about how trades work but I'm guessing that the full $7.25 million is off the Hawks cap now.

That's gonna help a lot with the paydays.
