Packers sign Matt Flynn

It was inevitable and it finally happened on Monday: the Packers signed free agent quarterback -- and former Packers backup -- Matt Flynn CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora reports.

Flynn joins the motley crew of Seneca Wallace and Scott Tolzien on the roster with Aaron Rodgers recovering from a fractured collarbone. He could also be joined by John Skelton.

In his previous stint with Green Bay, Flynn served as Rodgers backup and picked up a Super Bowl ring in 2011. That year he lit up the Lions in Week 16, throwing for 480 yards and a Packers-record six touchdowns while relieving Rogers.

That performance would propel him into the free-agent market. He eventually signed with the Seahawks, lost his gig to Russell Wilson and got traded to Oakland before this season. Terrelle Pryor beat him out there and he was released. After a cup of coffee with the Bills, Flynn landed on the open market again.

Now he's back where it all began, hoping to recreate some of that late-season magic for the Packers once again.
