The Jacksonville Jaguars, Buffalo Bills and Oakland Raiders are in play for a possible trade for Seattle Seahawks quarterback Matt Flynn, Jason La Canforna of CBS Sports reports.

Jacksonville would be an intriguing destination. It would reunite Flynn with former Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley, who is the Jags’ new head coach. He’d likely challenge Blaine Gabbert for the starting job.

Flynn signed a free agent contract last offseason and was the presumed starter heading into training camp, but he lost the job to rookie Russell Wilson in preseason. Flynn saw limited playing time as the Seahawks advanced to within a hair of the NFC Championship Game.

Buffalo recently released starting quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, leaving former Seahawk Tavaris Jackson as the likely starter at this point. The Raiders have veteran Carson Palmer and unproven Terrelle Pryor.

The Seahawks gave up several draft picks, including this year’s first round selection, in a trade for wide receiver Percy Harvin. It’s unlikely they could trade Flynn for a first round pick.
