Broncos rookie quarterback Paxton Lynch was running behind Mark Sanchez and Trevor Siemian in the spring, but said when he reported to camp that he thinks he has a real chance to play early in his first NFL season.
“No. 12 is really, really stepping up,” Kubiak said. “He’s making some progress here.”
The story went on to say that Kubiak said after an early practice with the team’s rookies that he saw improvement in Lynch’s game from where it was immediately after they picked him in the first round and it appears the needle continues to point up for the rookie. The team’s website reports Lynch displayed “steady work and sound decision-making” in Monday’s practice, which was supported by Kubiak’s appraisal of Lynch’s work. Even if Mark Sanchez starts the season, his inconsistencies may eventually cost him his job which could open the door for Lynch. Right now, though, Lynch is also behind Trevor Siemian.
