Matt Flynn steady, Tyler Wilson struggling for Raiders
Matt Flynn opened training camp with a loose grip on the Raiders' starting quarterback job after shaky offseason workouts. That grip, however, has reportedly gotten stronger a few practices into camp, according to Jerry McDonald of Inside Bay Area.
Flynn was erratic at times during offseason workouts and those struggles led some to believe rookie Tyler Wilson had a legitimate shot to beat Flynn out for the starting job. Levi Damien on Silver and Black Pride said some of Flynn's passes during OTA's were "wobbly" while Raiders head coach Dennis Allen said the quarterbacks weren't as mentally sharp as they needed to be.
Flynn has been much better in training camp, according to McDonald, who said the former Seattle and Green Bay QB has been consistent and error-free. Flynn doesn't have the strongest arm in the league and McDonald said Flynn appears to "understand his limitations" in the Raiders offense.
The early indications are positive for Flynn, but it is still very early in training camp. Flynn appeared in line to open the season as Seattle's starter last season before losing the job to Russell Wilson following the third preseason game.
