Flynn previously backed up Aaron Rodgers and saw action in 2010 for two games (both losses).
He took over for Rodgers and gave him a day of rest in the 2011 season finale, setting Packers records in a 45-41 win over the Detroit Lions.
The Packers currently have Tolzien starting their next game (Sunday at New York Giants, 1:00 p.m. on 620WTMJ).
