The Seattle Seahawks have traded quarterback Matt Flynn to the Oakland Raiders for a pair of draft picks.

The Seahawks announced Monday it will receive a fifth-round pick in 2014 and a conditional pick in 2015.

Flynn was signed as a free agent last offseason, but saw little playing time after rookie Russell Wilson won the starting job in preseason. Flynn threw just nine passes in 2012.

The trade leaves Wilson as the only quarterback on the Seahawks roster.

The Raiders are reportedly looking at trading quarterback Carson Palmer to the Arizona Cardinals.
