Lynch was waived by the Broncos on Sunday after they claimed former Washington quarterback Kevin Hogan off waivers. Lynch went unclaimed and is now free to sign with any team he wants.
According to reports, Lynch has a couple teams interested but his first visit will be to the Buffalo Bills. As we know, the Bills traded up to select quarterback Josh Allen in the first-round of April’s 2018 NFL Draft and did just name Nathan Peterman their starter. However, they feel like kicking the tires on the Broncos former first-round pick.

So the Bills may have a quarterback room consisting of Nathan Peterman, Josh Allen, and Paxton Lynch. In other news, the New England Patriots just clinched the AFC East title.
As for the Broncos, they seem to have already moved on from Paxton Lynch. Head Coach Vance Joseph was asked about him after practice today and he said: “Paxton’s gone, so that story’s gone with him.”.
Lynch will get a second chance with another team and time will tell if a change of scenery will help it finally click with him or if he will be out of the league in a few years.
