The Seattle Seahawks have signed quarterback Paxton Lynch as a backup option for Russell Wilson.
The 24-year-old Lynch was drafted 26th overall by the Denver Broncos in 2016, but he started only four games over two disappointing seasons with the team before he was waived before the start of the 2018 season.
He remained unsigned, making him eligible to sign a futures contract with Seattle before the start of free agency in March.
Seattle owned the #26 pick in the 1st round and traded it to Denver to move back and take OL Germaine Ifedit at #31.
No. 26: Seattle → Denver (D). Seattle traded its first-round selection (26th) to Denver in exchange for Denver's first- and third-round selections (31st and 94th).
I mean, realistically we are just talking about who holds the clipboard and calls the toss in overtime, but this is an interesting signing. He had some tools to make people value him where they did. And more than most positions, QBs can benefit from sitting and watching and learning.. could be a decent pick up.
I was sad to see Alex McGough went to Jax. Thought he had potential in our system and that we were a good landing spot for him.
