Well, so much for Matt Flynn and Joe Philbin being the perfect marriage. Flynn has signed a $26 million contract in Seattle, although only $10 million of that is guaranteed. Flynn certainly didn't break the backup quarterback bank the way Kevin Kolb and Matt Cassel did. Kolb's original contract with Arizona had $21 million guaranteed, while Cassel's contract with Kansas City had $28 million guaranteed.
Now that free agency has slowed down a bit, we'll go back to Extra Points posts on the major signings rather than a running thread each day.

It's a year of huge cornerback contracts, with A.J. Bouye and Stephon Gilmore breaking the bank. But will these big-money contracts, and the big-time gambles associated with them, pay off?
