  • Paxton Lynch: Lands in CFL

    Lynch signed with the Saskatchewan Roughriders of the CFL on June 28, Justin Dunk of reports. Lynch failed to secure a spot on the Steelers' roster during camp in 2020, and he was unable to land a spot on another team's practice squad. It's not yet clear whether the 2016 first-rounder will return to the NFL at some point after he totaled 792 passing yards with four touchdowns and four interceptions across five games with the Broncos in 2016 and 2017.

  • Steelers' Paxton Lynch: Serves as backup in finale

    Lynch didn't play any snaps while serving as the Steelers' backup quarterback in Sunday's 28-10 loss to the Ravens. Lynch was promoted from the practice squad Oct. 11 but didn't see the field during his two and a half months on the active roster, even with both Mason Rudolph (shoulder) and Devlin Hodges being demoted from starting roles at points. The 2016 first-round pick hasn't seen any NFL action since his second pro season and is unlikely to be much more than a training-camp body at quarterback if he sticks with Pittsburgh in 2020.

  • Steelers' Paxton Lynch: Bumps into No. 2 role

    Lynch will back up Devlin Hodges in Week 17's game against the Ravens, reports. Hodges started this past Sunday's loss to the Jets but played poorly and was relieved by Mason Rudolph, who suffered a shoulder injury during the contest. Therefore, Hodges will get the nod again, but Lynch will be ready if the undrafted rookie struggles again. Lynch last played in two games for the Broncos in 2017, completing 67 percent of passes for 295 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions.

  • Steelers' Paxton Lynch: Set to serve as backup QB

    Lynch was added to the Steelers' 53-man roster from the practice squad Friday. The 2016 first-rounder spent the preseason with the Seahawks but was let go at September's roster deadline and joined the Steelers' practice squad Sept. 17. Lynch provides some additional depth at quarterback with Ben Roethlisberger (elbow) on injured reserve and Mason Rudolph dealing with a concussion. Lynch will serve as the No. 2 quarterback behind Devlin Hodges this week against the Chargers with Rudolph sidelined.

  • Paxton Lynch: Lands on Steelers' practice squad

    Lynch signed with Pittsburgh's practice squad Tuesday, Jeremy Fowler of reports. Lynch was available after the Seahawks let him go Aug. 30. The former first-round pick will be able to provide the Steelers' quarterback room with some depth after it was announced Monday that Ben Roethlisberger would miss the remainder of the season with an elbow injury.

  • Paxton Lynch: Let go by Seattle

    The Seahawks waived Lynch on Friday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Timesreports. Condotta also notes that Seattle could try to keep Lynch on their practice squad for the 2019 season. Regardless, the 25-year-old will have to continue to wait for his shot at a bigger role under center. Lynch didn't see any regular-season action in 2018. The former first-round pick appeared in five games for Denver between 2016 and 2017, completing a total of 79 passes for 792 yards, four touchdowns and four interceptions.

  • Seahawks' Paxton Lynch: Shines in Seahawks debut

    Lynch completed 11 of 15 passes for 109 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's preseason game versus the Broncos. He also ran four times for 38 yards and a score. Lynch is positioned at No. 3 on Seattle's depth chart behind Russell Wilson and Geno Smith, but this game should be enough to lift him over Smith. He'll get the chance to take reps with the second team for the next week while Smith recovers from a minor surgery on his knee. While the Seahawks are still probably going to sign another quarterback to compete for the job, if Lynch can repeat the performance he put up against the Broncos he appears poised to take the job.

  • Paxton Lynch: Works out for Packers

    Lynch worked out for the Packers on Tuesday, Rob Demovsky of reports. It's not clear if the Packers took a look at Lynch for any other reason than they wanted to evaluate him as a prospect, but it does at least lead to more speculation that the Packers are considering shutting down starter Aaron Rodgers for the rest of the season. Lynch remains a free agent for now, but if the Packers do decide to call it a season for Rodgers, Lynch is presumably the favorite to take his place on the roster.

  • Paxton Lynch: Set to work out for Bills

    Lynch is slated to work out for the Bills on Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. The Broncos recently cut ties with the No. 26 overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, but he figures to catch on elsewhere as a backup. The Bills have current starter Nathan Peterman, as well as 2018 first-rounder Josh Allen on hand, so if Lynch were to sign with Buffalo, he'd be the team's clear-cut No. 3 option. Alternatively, the team may just want to kick the tires on Lynch, with an eye toward having him on a short list of potential replacements should either Peterman or Allen suffer an injury.

  • Paxton Lynch: Not sticking with Denver

    Lynch was cut by the Broncos on Sunday, Tom Pelissero of reports. Lynch survived cutdown day but didn't have a spot on the team after the Broncos claimed Kevin Hogan off waivers. The 2016 first-round pick may have a chance to latch on elsewhere as a developmental project.

  • Broncos' Paxton Lynch: Falls to third-string QB

    Lynch was overtaken by Chad Kelly as the Broncos' No. 2 quarterback, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Lynch was abysmal in Saturday's preseason game against the Vikings, completing only 6 of 11 passes for 24 yards and an interception. Kelly, on the other hand, looked much more impressive and totaled more yards on the ground (three carries for 38 yards) than Lynch had through the air. The 26th overall pick of the 2016 draft was the de facto backup quarterback after the Broncos signed Case Keenum in March but now finds himself practicing with the third-string offense.

  • Broncos' Paxton Lynch: Offense tailored to strengths

    The Broncos plan to adjust their offensive scheme this season to complement the skill sets of both Lynch and new starter Case Keenum. Broncos head coach Vance Joseph proclaimed a similar sentiment last offseason, noting that the offense under his first year on the sideline would suit Lynch and Trevor Siemian, who has since been shipped to Minnesota. As for this year's quarterback duo, Keenum and Lynch deliver their best work when extending plays with their feet, so roll-out plays should become staples in Denver's offense under coordinator Bill Musgrave. At the same time, that scheme could also be adaptable for Baker Mayfield, Josh Rosen, Josh Allen and other quarterbacks with decent mobility available near the top of the draft. Denver may be able to spin the Keenum signing and playbook adjustment as positives for Lynch's development, but the team could also be looking at developing another signal caller come April as the front office makes its way through the pro-day circuit.

  • Broncos' Paxton Lynch: Set in No. 2 role

    Broncos coach Vance Joseph said Friday that Lynch is the team's No. 2 quarterback, Nicki Jhabvala of The Denver Post reports. Joseph merely is stating the obvious, after the Broncos signed Case Keenum to be their starter and traded Trevor Siemian (shoulder) to the Vikings. Given how bad he's looked in limited action since being selected 26th overall in the 2016 draft, Lynch ultimately may face competition for the backup job from 2017 seventh-round pick Chad Kelly (wrist) and/or a rookie from the upcoming draft. The Broncos don't seem especially likely to add another veteran signal-caller, as they still need to address weaknesses at right tackle, tight end and the No. 3 receiver spot.

  • Broncos' Paxton Lynch: Likely to start if healthy Week 17

    Broncos head coach Vance Joseph reiterated after Sunday's 27-11 loss to the Redskins that Lynch would likely start Week 17 against the Chiefs if the quarterback's sprained ankle cooperates, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports. "Our goal is to see [Lynch] play, so absolutely," Joseph said. "If he's ready to go next week, he will probably play for us." Lynch and Brock Osweiler split first-team reps throughout practice last week, but Osweiler received the nod Sunday when it was determined that the lingering effects of Lynch's high-ankle sprain would limit the second-year signal caller to backup duties. Even if Osweiler had performed well in the blowout loss -- he completed 22 of 38 passes for 193 yards and tossed two interceptions -- a healthy Lynch would likely still be considered the favorite to start the regular-season finale, as his status as a 2016 first-round pick has Denver eager to see what he can do heading into 2018. Lynch was a limited participant in two of the Broncos' three practices last week, so if he's able to put in a full session or two in the coming days, Joseph should feel more comfortable turning the offense over to the 23-year-old. Though Lynch has more perceived upside than Osweiler, he has yet to show much promise in four career appearances. With a 59.7 percent completion mark for a weak 5.5 yards per attempt and two touchdowns against two interceptions in those contests, Lynch should be treated as a lower-tier fantasy option at quarterback if he garners the Week 17 start.

  • Broncos' Paxton Lynch: Serving as backup in Week 16

    Lynch (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Redskins, but will dress as the backup to Brock Osweiler, Nicki Jhabvala of The Denver Post reports. Though Lynch was able to practice all week and even put in a full session Friday, the Broncos' coaching staff evidently wasn't convinced that the quarterback was running at full strength. As a result, Lynch will be limited to the understudy role Sunday, but the expectation is that if he endures no further setbacks with the sprained ankle, he'll receive the starting assignment for the season finale against the Chiefs. Osweiler is set to become a free agent this offseason and may not have a future with the organization, so it behooves the Broncos to take a longer look at Lynch, a 2016 first-round pick.

  • Broncos' Paxton Lynch: Ruled out this week

    Lynch (ankle) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Colts. With Lynch still recovering from a sprained right ankle that he suffered back in Week 12, Trevor Siemian will continue to start at quarterback for the Broncos on Thursday, with Brock Osweiler acting as the backup.

  • Broncos' Paxton Lynch: Out 2-to-4 weeks

    Lynch is dealing with a high-ankle injury and is expected to be out for 2-to-4 weeks, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports. Even if the diagnosis had been something less serious, the Broncos might have gone back to Trevor Siemian in the wake of Lynch's disastrous performance during Sunday's 21-14 loss to the Raiders. The 2016 first-round pick essentially confirmed that the team needs to aggressively address its QB situation in the offseason, as he completed nine of 13 passes for 41 yards and an interception while also taking four sacks. The Broncos were losing 21-0 at the time of Lynch's injury but made a late push to make a game of it with Siemian under center. Siemian will get the start Week 13 in Miami.

  • Broncos' Paxton Lynch: Exits game with ankle injury

    Lynch left Sunday's game against the Raiders with an ankle injury, Nicki Jhabvala of The Denver Post reports. With Lynch injured and Brock Osweiler inactive Sunday, Trevor Siemian is back in at quarterback for the Broncos. Prior to his exit, Lynch completed nine of 14 pass attempts for 41 yards and a pick, while adding two carries for 20 yards.

  • Broncos' Paxton Lynch: Serving as backup QB

    Lynch is listed as active Sunday against the Bengals. Lynch is drawing ever closer to his first start of the season, but backup duties will be his domain for at least one more game as he supersedes Trevor Siemien in the pecking order. For the time being, though, the Broncos will entrust Brock Osweiler with the starting gig.

  • Broncos' Paxton Lynch: Practice participation to dictate Week 11 status

    Broncos head coach Vance Joseph said Friday that Lynch's performance during practice this week would dictate whether or not the quarterback is active for Sunday's game against the Bengals, Jeff Legwold of reports. Lynch has been inactive the entire season while recovering from an injury to his right shoulder that he originally suffered in training camp. That has allowed either current starter Brock Osweiler or Trevor Siemian to act as the top backup through the team's nine contests, but with Lynch having worked with the second unit in practice this week, it appears he could displace Siemian for those duties in Week 11. Osweiler hasn't been overly impressive in his two starts since displacing Siemian, so it's conceivable that Lynch could soon ascend to the top spot on the depth chart, particularly if the Broncos fade further from the playoff picture.
