According to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com, the Buffalo Bills will be bringing in former Denver Broncos quarterback Paxton Lynch for a visit and workout. Just a few days after trading away their third quarterback, AJ McCarron, to Oakland for a fifth-round pick, the possibility of a third quarterback being on the roster looms over their head.

Lynch has had an unsuccessful start to his career to say the least. In 2017 he lost the quarterback competition in the offseason to Trevor Siemien. He appeared in only five games for the Broncos over the first two years of his career and hasn't made the jump to be a starter in the NFL. In 2017 Lynch appeared in two games, going 30 for 45 for 295 yards with 2 touchdowns and 3 interceptions. Genral manager John Elway and the rest of the Broncos organization gave up on Lynch after his first two seasons and the addition of Case Keenum as their starting quarterback.
