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.
