Reports Indicate Browns Not In Pursuit Of Matt Flynn, But Wikipedia Says He's Already Signed

NFL free agency kicked off on Tuesday afternoon, and as many expected, the Browns were conspicuously quiet. The one big rumor of the day surfaced in the evening and emanated from South Florida. Omar Kelly of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported that the Dolphins and Browns were both about to offer Matt Flynn a contract.

According to Wikipedia sources, however, Flynn has already signed a 10-year deal for $120 million. Some sneaky internet dweller - presumably a Browns fans, took it upon himself to update Flynn's Wikipedia page with some snark.

On March 13, 2012 Matt Flynn signed on to be the starting quarterback for the Cleveland Browns. Flynn had more offensive production in one game than the entire Browns offense had during most of the 2011 season. He signed a 10 year deal worth $120,000,000.

Thankfully, Tom Heckert hasn't handed out a 10-year contract to a quarterback who's only started two games. Mary Kay Cabot went a step further and completely refuted Kelly's report that the Browns were set to offer Flynn anything.
