As the Broncos prepare for their preseason matchup with the Seahawks, former quarterback Paxton Lynch had some comparisons to make between the two teams.
Paxton Lynch was out of football for the entire 2018 season. He was drafted by the Denver Broncos shortly after the team won Super Bowl 50. However, he would never find himself as the franchise quarterback after losing training camp battle after training camp battle to other quarterbacks.
He would lose the job to Trevor Siemian and then could not even beat Chad Kelly for the backup spot. Once the team was able to sign Kevin Hogan, the Paxton Lynch experiment came to an end. Fast forward to the end of the season, and Paxton Lynch now has a job behind Russell Wilson in Seattle.
On Thursday, Lynch will get his shot against his former team as Denver travels to Seattle for the next preseason game against the Seahawks. He met with the media on Friday and provided his experience between Seattle and Denver.
“It feels closer, feels like a family. I bring my fiance out here, I bring my dad out here. And they even say it too. They feel so much more welcome around everybody. They’re [Seattle] so good to them. They treat them so good. They treat the players good. It feels like part of a family. It feels like everybody is close.”
Lynch did give his thoughts on Denver and saying how it just did not work out. But I feel as if the “family” comment he made was a bit strange. There were plenty of comments being made that he was not studying the playbook and playing video games. Not sure how much truth there is to it, but it makes me wonder if there is still something there that just did not sit well with Lynch.
It will be interesting if any of the Denver Broncos players heard those comments. If so, some of the second and third string players will have their chance to sack a former Broncos first round draft pick. We shall see on Thursday.
