Three teams eyeing Flynn?: Matt Flynn signed a big contract with the Seattle Seahawks before last season, expecting to be the team’s starting quarterback. Then Russell Wilson showed up and pushed Flynn to the bench. Now, there are reportedly three teams — the Bills, Jaguars and Raiders — interested in swinging a trade for the Seattle backup. Either one of these teams would proved Flynn an opportunity to compete for a starting job, which would increase his fantasy value. What that value is, however, would have to wait until a move is made … if a move is made.
Gronk underwent third surgery: Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski admitted to having undergone a third surgery on his previously broken forearm, this time to clear up an infection. The dynamic pass-catcher originally suffered the injury in the Week 11 win over the Colts and re-injured in the playoff victory against the Texans. It looks like Gronk is on track to be ready for the start of the season and remains the top tight end in fantasy football. However, you would be forgiven if you start to wonder about his durability.
Campbell signs with Browns: The Cleveland Browns signed Jason Campbell to a two-year contract Tuesday, putting Brandon Weeden on shaky ground as the team’s starter. It’s expected that the incumbent Weeden will earn the nod for new head coach Rob Chudzinski, having a capable backup means the second-year signal-caller will likely have a short leash.
