The Seattle Seahawks are engaged in trade discussions with multiple teams regarding backup quarterback Matt Flynn, with one source describing an agreement as being "imminent."

The Seahawks would be seeking draft picks for Flynn and were encouraged when the San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs set the market for such trades, with Alex Smith going to Kansas City for a second-round pick this year and a conditional third-rounder that could become a second-round pick if Smith meets predetermined levels of success with his new team.

Smith has played significantly more in his career than has Flynn.
