The Broncos would like to see Lynch take the reins at some point this season, 9NEWS reports.

Lynch became Denver's future the moment they traded up in the first round to nab him. Ever since, however, the conversation around 2016's starter has been around Mark Sanchez and Trevor Siemian. Lynch is easily the most physically gifted of the three, but he's supposedly still refining his game and adjusting to a pro offense. Whether Lynch ends up finding the playing field will likely depend on whether Denver's defense and running game is carrying it to another playoff berth. Head coach Gary Kubiak opted for experience over physical skill last playoffs, albeit in the form of a future Hall of Famer in Peyton Manning, not a journeyman like Sanchez. This scenario has played out in Mile High before under offensive coordinator Rick Dennison. Denver was 7-4 with Jake Plummer under center in 2006, only to test out Jay Cutler and fall to 9-7, out of the playoff race.
