Lynch, 27, is a former first-round pick of the Broncos back in 2016. He was in the third year of his four-year, $9.4 million contract that included $7.88 million guaranteed when the Broncos waived him coming out of the preseason.
From there, Lynch signed a futures deal with the Seahawks for the 2019 season, but was waived coming out of the preseason. He later caught on with the Steelers and was eventually released before the start of the 2020 season.
For his career, Lynch appeared in five games for the Broncos and completed 61.7 percent of his passes for 792 yards, four touchdowns and four interceptions. He also rushed for 16 yards.
