Paxton Lynch played for the Denver Broncos for two seasons in which he struggled. Despite this, he will have suitors on the open market looking for a backup quarterback. According to Ian Rapport, Lynch will meet with teams in the coming weeks.

Having said that, Lynch struggled in preseason. Chad Kelly replaced him as Case Keenum’s backup. As well as that, he was booed in front of the Mile High faithful.

The Buffalo Bills are one team that could be willing to take a chance on him. Reportedly, he will workout with them on Tuesday. There would be two players ahead of him in the depth chart – Nathan Peterman and Josh Allen. The Bills announced on Monday that Peterman will start the season as the starting quarterback.

Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders will be among those rooting for Lynch to succeed.

“Obviously, he just didn’t do the job,” Sanders said about Lynch in an interview with’s Nick Shook. “I was rooting for the guy. He’s got all the intangibles in the world. Six-foot-6, 6-foot-7, big arm, can scramble, can run. I just think that for Paxton, he’s just got to keep honing in on his mental skills, his study skills, how to go about playing the quarterback position, knowing your reads and checkdowns and also playing with a sense of confidence that runs through the offense, spreads through like a wildfire throughout the offense.”
