Paxton Lynch drafted in USFL after requesting release from CFL

According to his agent, Chris Cabott, Paxton Lynch requested permission from the Saskatchewan Roughriders to enter the USFL portal for family reasons. He was subsequently drafted by the Michigan Panthers.

Fantasy Impact

Lynch had been with the Roughriders for one season after not making the roster for the Steelers in 2020. A first-round pick in the 2016 draft, he had previously played two seasons for the Denver Broncos but has not seen any NFL action since. The Michigan Panthers drafted the former Memphis standout in the 12th round.

Paxton Lynch signed to Steelers practice squad

Paxton Lynch was signed to the Pittsburgh Steelers practice squad Tuesday, Adam Schefter reports.

Fantasy Impact

The signing comes in the wake of Ben Roethlisberger’s season-ending elbow surgery. Lynch last attempted a regular-season pass in 2017 while with the Denver Broncos — the team that selected him in the first round of the 2016 draft.

Paxton Lynch waived by Seattle

Gregg Bell is reporting that the Seahawks have waived QB Paxton Lynch.

Fantasy Impact

He had already been behind Geno Smith on the depth chart prior to the last preseason game against Oakland, but his performance Thursday sealed his roster fate. Despite this, however, he still showed enough mobility this preseason to warrant a practice squad spot. The 26th overall pick in the 2016 draft will have a tough road ahead to stay in this league.

Paxton Lynch to work out for Bills Tuesday

Ian Rapoport is reporting that former Denver QB Paxton Lynch will work out for the Bills Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Lynch will begin the process of finding a new team with an audition for the Bills. The former 26th overall pick out of Memphis cleared waivers after being cut by Denver Sunday after initially making the 53-man roster.

Paxton Lynch released by Broncos

After surviving the initial wave of Broncos' roster cuts, Paxton Lynch has been released by Denver after the club signed Kevin Hogan to backup Case Keenum and Chad Kelly.

Fantasy Impact

Lynch earned limited playing time in two seasons and compiled a 76.7 QB rating while throwing four touchdowns and four interceptions. He might get another shot with another team's practice squad, but Lynch simply hasn't looked like an NFL signal-caller at any point since being selected with the 26th pick of the 2016 NFL Draft. Lynch is far closer to colossal draft bust than he is adequate NFL passer.
