The Denver Broncos have cut quarterback Paxton Lynch after claiming quarterback Kevin Hogan off waivers.

NFL: Denver Broncos at Arizona Cardinals Matt Kartozian-USA TODAY Sports

The Denver Broncos have cut Paxton Lynch after being awarded their waiver claim for former Washington Redskins quarterback Kevin Hogan on Sunday.

Lynch, 24, is the Broncos former first-round draft pick in the 2016 NFL Draft who has been unable to overcome two different seventh-round draft picks in each offseason. His inability to grow as a quarterback has forced the Broncos hand.

A team will likely pick up Lynch somewhere hoping to find a way to salvage a former first-round pick.
