Summary

Paxton Lynch was supposed to be the franchise quarterback of the future for the Broncos when they moved up to select him in the first round of the 2016 NFL draft. Well, things change quickly around here as Lynch has failed to grasp the starting job and has not appeared to understand the opportunity that he's squandered with the Broncos. They went out in free agency and paid Case Keenum $25 million in guarantees to be their starting quarterback and now Lynch has no shot to be the top guy unless Keenum gets banged up. Even in that event, there's no guarantee that Lynch will be the second-string quarterback for the Broncos. He's got to beat out 2017 seventh-round pick Chad Kelly for the backup job. The Broncos did not add any quarterback in the draft, so it's going to be Lynch versus Kelly for the right to be one snap away from starting. Other than a couple of games (at Tampa in 2016, at home against the Chiefs in 2017), Lynch has not flashed the ability to be a productive pro. We'll see if 2018 is finally his wake-up call...and if it's not too late for him in Denver. (May 16)
