NFL Free Agency: Browns Have Not Pursued Matt Flynn, According To Report

On Tuesday during the first day of free agency, reports surfaced out of South Florida that both the Cleveland Browns and Miami Dolphins were in pursuit of quarterback Matt Flynn. Omar Kelly of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reportedthat both clubs would be exchanging contract offers with Flynn's agent "soon." Mary Kay Cabot relayed the report, but did not confirm the Browns interest.

Then, on Wednesday morning, Cabot refuted that report, tweeting that the Browns have not pursued Flynn and had not made an offer.

Via @MaryKayCabot:

Based on how quiet the Browns were on the first day, and the past statements and general philosophy of Tom Heckert, the initial report was surprising. Cleveland may still have a strong interest in Flynn, but Cabot soundly refutes any report that they're prepared to make an offer. Earlier reporting on Tuesday had reiterated this, as both Matt Miller and Don Banks said the Browns were not players for Flynn and likely a third option.
