This Week Outlook
Paxton Lynch was signed to the Pittsburgh Steelers practice squad Tuesday, Adam Schefter reports.
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.
Gregg Bell is reporting that the Seahawks have waived QB Paxton Lynch.
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.
Ian Rapoport is reporting that former Denver QB Paxton Lynch will work out for the Bills Tuesday.
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.
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.
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.
ESPN is reporting that Paxton Lynch has made the Broncos' 53-man roster.
Lynch was firmly on the roster bubble after dropping to third on the QB depth chart behind starter Case Keenum and Chad Kelly. It is unlikely that Lynch will be active on any game days barring injury. The Broncos are giving Lynch his last chance to develop after making him their first-round pick in the 2016 draft.
