Schefter: Trade value for low Broncos QB Paxton Lynch

Schefter: Trade value for low Broncos QB Paxton Lynch

After the game, Broncos coach Vance Joseph was non-committal about shaking up the depth chart, but he decided to make a change by Monday.

On Saturday, Lynch went 6-for-11 for 24 yards and a pick while Kelly had 177 yards on 14-of-21 passing for two touchdowns and an interception.

"It's more about what Chad has done". But Chad, he's played well. "Those guys made the plays, they got me in the right protections and the guys with the ball in their hands made plays".

"Obviously disappointed, but he understands that it's a performance business", Joseph told reporters.




Lynch, whom the Broncos moved up to draft in the first round in 2016 out of Memphis, was beaten out by seventh-rounder Trevor Siemian each of the last two summers and now has fallen behind another seventh-rounder in Kelly.

The league and the NFLPA have yet to announce a policy for this season regarding demonstrations during the anthem after the league initially ordered everyone to stand on the sideline when the anthem is played, or remain in the locker room. Chad's played well. He's played with poise, he's played with confidence. He moved the ball for us on Saturday night.

Instead of spending money to go to games this year, Broncos fans can donate that money to getting Lynch out of Denver! Both of his scores came on connections with running back Roc Thomas, a 13-yard strike in the first quarter and the 78-yard play just before halftime. Got to work hard, watch more film than I ever have before. Plus, it's not like the Broncos - valued at $2.5 billion by Forbes - are short on cash. His first test in his new role will come Wednesday and Thursday, when the Broncos hold joint practices with the Chicago Bears at UCHealth Training Center, and when the teams play a preseason game Saturday at Broncos Stadium at Mile High. "When bullets are flying, make sure you execute". "Whatever I can do, I'm going to keep on working extremely hard".
