Flynn named Packers' top backup; Punter Jon Ryan released
by Bryon Graff
GREEN BAY (WAOW) - Seventh round pick Matt Flynn beats out Brian Brohm as the Packers' backup quarterback. Head Coach Mike McCarthy says the coaches felt Flynn was a little more productive, but it's a competition that continues.
They release punter Jon Ryan and linebacker Abdul Hodge. Ryan owns Green Bay's second and third-best all-time season gross punting averages. Ryan is replaced by Derrick Frost who spent the last three years with the Redskins.
Hodge missed last year with surgery for tendinitis in both knees. His spot makes room for long snapper Brett Goode, who has yet to play a regular season game.
