Denver Broncos News and Notes

Well, it looks like John Lynch will be a Denver Bronco no more. The veteran safety has chosen to leave the team and possibly pursue playing for another team or retiring altogether. Entering his 16th year in the league, Lynch has had an impressive career but is slowing down a little and was not happy with the role that he was going to be taking on with Denver this year.

Denver’s Rod Smith makes it official
