Seattle was the latest stop on Paxton Lynch‘s post-Broncos workout tour, with the team bringing him and two others in for an audition according to Field Yates of ESPN (Twitter link).
Yates reports that the Seahawks brought in the former first round quarterback as well as former Jets wide receiver Chad Hansen and former Browns defensive lineman Jamie Meder. It’s been a busy month of flying for Lynch after he was let go by the Broncos at final cuts. He worked out for the Jaguars last week, and the Redskins the week before that. He’s also worked out for the Eagles, the Lions , and the Bills during his time on the open market.
The 26th overall pick of the 2016 draft might not be able to find a home on an active roster this season, and may need to wait til the end of the season to sign a reserve/futures contract for the offseason. Most teams’ quarterback depth charts are set, and the clubs that will be looking for signal callers due to injuries will likely be looking to add veterans and not developmental projects at this point in the season.
Hansen was a fourth round pick of the Jets back in 2017, but didn’t survive final cuts this year. He was claimed by the Patriots, but lasted only a week on New England’s roster. Meder spent the past three seasons with the Browns, and made the team’s initial 53 this year, but was cut soon after to make room for incoming Cleveland waiver claims. The Seahawks have Brett Hundley backing up Russell Wilson, and Alex McGough on the practice squad, so it would be surprising if they brought in Lynch this season.
