ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) - Going from a playoff contending team in Seattle to the rebuilding project in Oakland doesn't seem to bother Matt Flynn much.
If anything, the Raiders' new quarterback is embracing his new surroundings - and his new role.
With Carson Palmer having been traded to Arizona in a deal that was completed Tuesday, Flynn is expected to be Oakland's starter next season after spending his first five seasons in the NFL as a backup.
He'll have to beat out Terrelle Pryor for the job in training camp, and there's been talk the Raiders are considering taking West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith with the third overall pick in the draft later this month.
But all indications are that the 27-year-old Flynn will be Oakland's third different starter in three years when the 2013 season begins.
