Several teams are interested in trading for Seattle Seahawks backup quarterback Matt Flynn, reports CBSSports.com.

The report says that the Jacksonville Jaguars are the most likely destination for Flynn, but the Buffalo Bills and Oakland Raiders are also interested in the veteran quarterback.

Flynn signed a three-year, $19.5 million contract with the Seahawks last offseason and was in line to be the starter. But the Seahawks drafted Russell Wilson in the third round of last year’s draft and he beat out Flynn for the starting job in training camp. Flynn is due $5.25 million next season.

From the CBSSports.com report:

All three of these teams could end up drafting a quarterback high next month, but they do have at least some interest in making a deal. The Seahawks might not be able to get more than a fourth- or fifth-round pick for Flynn, but after parting with a bounty in a trade for receiver Percy Harvin, they would obviously like to replenish some. However, the team won’t give Flynn away as it prepares for what it hopes is a Super Bowl season.
