Deadspin had a story about an NFL punter who was a target of a scam.
We live in a society where people born on third base constantly try to steal second, yet we expect people born with two strikes against them to hit a homerun on the first pitch.

As weird as it is, I believe Teo. I believe he was the victim of the hoax, and then perpetuated the lie once he found out to try and save face. I guess I look at the Teo thing as a Nika and Invis that turned out going terribly wrong, instead of "right".

Touche.

Of course, the cynical in me makes me believe he was in the hoax because he was trying to save face for being gay (NTTAWWT) or drama/sympathy votes towards the Heisman

I'd sign him to the 84-man squad for vet minimum. There's no risk in it and if there's potential reward, then it's a good move.

Teams usually pick up 2-3 QBs as "camp arms" for evaluating their wide receiver candidates anyway, so if you can get one who has a 100:1 shot at making the team instead of a 10,000:1 shot, why not?

Of course, the Seahawks would be the ideal place for him to go for a second chance because it's a young team with an exciting atmosphere and a positive-outlook head coach who writes books on achieving personal goals. If he can't succeed in that environment, he can't do it anywhere.

League Sources have them parting ways with Flynn, as Flynn is interested in a chance at a starting job, which means Seattle is out.

Well, yeah, but I didn't want to pile on the browns =P

And the cards and jets are worse at QB than the browns.

The Seahawks are happy with Flynn, but he's not happy playing backup, and his salary isn't very nice for the Seahawks. The Seahawks have plenty of cap space, but taking Flynn off the books would allow even more room.

Still, it's a luxury situation. The Seahawks don't have to move Flynn unless they have a better/cheaper option.
