Lynch, a former first round pick, quickly fell out of favor in Denver and ultimately found himself out of a job when he was outplayed by 2017 seventh-rounder Chad Kelly during the preseason. Many teams still see something interesting in Lynch’s potential, and several clubs have been rumored to be interested.
Detroit would be an interesting landing spot for Lynch, as they cut their younger developmental option Jake Rudock recently at final cuts. Although they brought Ruddock back on the practice squad, they currently only have the aging Matt Cassel behind Matthew Stafford on the roster.
Lynch could slide in behind Cassel and be developed to be Stafford’s backup of the future. Lynch recently visited the Bills and has a few other tryouts scheduled, but it wouldn’t be a surprise for him to sign with the Lions. Either way, he shouldn’t be unemployed much longer.
