Seattle Seahawks general manager John Schneider has been coy this offseason about whether or not the team plans to trade backup quarterback Matt Flynn. If the Seahawks plan to trade Flynn, his value might be going down thanks to a reported injury in his throwing arm.

According to USA Today, Flynn has spent most of his offseason working to correct elbow tendinitis in his right arm. Flynn's injury won't require surgery, but it will probably make any potential trading partner nervous about dealing for Seattle's No. 2 quarterback.

The tendinitis is something Flynn has dealt with off-and-on since late August. Flynn missed the Seahawks' third preseason game with an injury that coach Pete Carroll described at the time as a "tendinitis-type thing."
