The Green Bay Packers are bringing back a familiar face in quarterback Matt Flynn.

According to multiple reports, the former seventh-round pick of the team in the 2008 draft will be returning to a club devoid of its talisman with franchise QB Aaron Rodgers still out for over a month.

Flynn made his mark in a 480-yard, six TD performance against the  Detroit Lions on January 1st, 2012 in a 45-41 win, setting Green Bay records for quarterback yardage and touchdown passes in the procress.

That off-season, Flynn signed a three-year, $20.5 mill. deal with the Seattle Seahawks, where he was expected to be Seattle's starting QB. He lost that job out of training camp to rookie Russell Wilson and found himself dealt to the Oakland Raiders this past April.

Once again, Flynn couldn't establish himself as starter in Oakland, losing the position to Terrelle Pryor.

After being released by the Raiders last month, he was signed by the Buffalo Bills, but never appeared in a game for the team. He was released last Monday upon the return of starting QB EJ Manuel.

Back in Green Bay, Flynn will compete for time with Seneca Wallace until the return of Rodgers.

The Packers are next in action on Sunday when they visit the New York Giants.
