Default I just heard...

...that Lynch is done with the Broncos and they gave him the ok to "explore other options". Do we end up with yet another former Bronco or are we set at safety?

I agree. I was just posting as information and kinda being tongue and cheek about how a lot of former Broncos end up here. Although if you're going to get a former Bronco he's not a bad one to get.

I like Lynch. He is old, and we are pretty set on SS. But I would still find room for him.

Former Bronco's players have helped get the team to where it is. Lynch was a monster player for a long time, if he still has some gas in the tank it would be crazy not to take a look at him if he wants to come here.

Gas in the tank may be an appropriate phrase....how much has he got left in his head? Doesn't he average more concussions per year than INT's?

I liked Lynch in his heyday but his age at this point will make him a no go for the team IMO. I am curious to see what the Harrisons can possibly bring to the table this year.

Personally I don't care if you're an ex-Bronco, Packer, Patriot or whatever. Bottom line is if you can help improve this team it doesn't matter to me what former team you played for.

He's past his prime and a step too slow to invest too much cap space in now.

look, these angry anti denver posts are getting silly. you're not thinking about this logically. to quote one of our fellow texans talkers:

again, that a huge part of the success of the new regime.
so that post was in reference to mike bell being brought in for a visit.... but it applies to every player on their roster! think about it. who cares where they played before? seriously ask yourself... why am I so upset about this?

That said, I don't think John Lynch has much left in the tank.
