I liked Lynch when he played for the Bucs. Especially during the super bowl vs the fade when they showed him on the sideline and he said something to the tune of, "Every play they are running, we ran in practice!" He was all giddy and I was too because of $$$ I had on the game. I actually predicted the Bucs to take it all that year.
That being said, **** lynch, **** dungy, and **** Warren Sapp.

not to be a contrarian, but I for one hope Edwards brings him in to teach the young guys. I have always liked Lynch's playstyle, however. I know a lot of chiefs fans didn't like the hit he put on dante hall. I thought it was a clean hit. I mean, it was vicious, flagged and fined, but dante touched the ball before Lynch hit him. And frankly, that is what safeties are supposed to do. I want to see our safeties laying hits like that. And who better to mentor them?

Lynch, Broncos separate
The veteran safety is looking for work after asking for his release and leaving camp.
By Mike Klis
The Denver Post
Article Launched: 07/31/2008 12:30:00 AM MDT


John Lynch's four-year run with the Broncos has come to an end, with the safety asking for his release. He helped the Bucs win the Super Bowl in the 2002 season. (Denver Post file photo )John Lynch and the Broncos weren't getting along in early March.

After temporarily reconciling their differences, the team and veteran safety realized they weren't right for each in late July, either.

The result is the Broncos have lost another team leader from their defense.

After 15 NFL seasons and nine Pro Bowl selections, Lynch left the team's training camp Tuesday after asking for his release in hopes of playing elsewhere. Broncos coach Mike Shanahan allowed Lynch the chance to explore other options, including retirement.

"I enjoyed playing with him. I learned a lot from him," Broncos cornerback Domonique Foxworth said. "It's sad to see him go."

After the Broncos' workout on Wednesday, Shanahan said only that Lynch
"was excused for personal reasons." Many players were then excused after the morning workout to join Lynch at a local establishment for a send-off.
Lynch will meet with the media today at Dove Valley.

Lynch is the third vocal leader the Broncos have lost in the past year. The team released middle linebacker Al Wilson because of health concerns before last season, and wide receiver Rod Smith retired last week.

The Broncos now have just three defensive starters from their 2005 AFC championship game Foxworth, cornerback Champ Bailey and outside linebacker D.J. Williams.

"We've lost a lot, but that's life in the NFL," Foxworth said.

Although Shanahan gave Lynch the option of staying with the Broncos and competing for the starting position he held the past four years, the coach will grant the safety's wish and release him today.

At this point, it would be a surprise if Lynch found another place to play. He turns 37 on Sept. 25, and most teams already have set their secondary.

Lynch first considered retirement after the 2007 season, his fourth with the Broncos. He then decided to play one more year, but nearly left for free agency after the Broncos offered a 33 percent pay cut from $3 million in 2008

Denver Broncos safety John Lynch jokes with reporters as players head back to the locker room after taking part in morning session of the opening day of training camp at the team's headquarters in southeast Denver on Friday, July 25, 2008. The Broncos' camp runs through mid-August. (David Zalubowski, The Associated Press)to $2 million.
But personal talks with owner Pat Bowlen and Shanahan, and a desire not to uproot his wife and four children from the Denver area, convinced Lynch to return. He re-signed with the Broncos on March 1.

One week later, the Broncos signed free-agent safeties Marlon McCree, who started the past two years with rival San Diego, and Marquand Manuel, who started 29 games in three previous seasons with Seattle, Green Bay and Carolina.

Clearly, Lynch wasn't going to be handed his starting position without competing for it. The other safety spot belonged to Hamza Abdullah, a fourth-year player whom Lynch often provided veteran counsel in three previous seasons.

"John is my mentor," Abdullah said this week. "Of course he's the best safety I've ever played with, but he's also going down as one of the best safeties in league history. When I came off the field, he's always the first one to talk to me. 'Hamza, you did this right, you did this wrong.' He grades me hard. His standards for me are almost as high as I put on myself. For a guy to invest that much in me, I love that about John."

Mentoring, however, carries only so much satisfaction for Lynch. Just how much his playing time was going to be cut, however, didn't become evident until training camp. Lynch had been playing with the No. 1 base defense, but he was replaced by McCree in nickel situations.

Given the passing nature of the NFL, defenses generally employ their nickel packages for half the snaps. During the team's morning workout Tuesday, the Broncos sprinkled in McCree for a couple of reps on the first-team base defense.

It appears the Broncos want Abdullah to fill Lynch's role as the eighth man in the eight-man box and allow McCree to play as the deep safety.

Lynch was drafted by Tampa Bay in 1993. He played 11 seasons for the Buccaneers, helping them win the Super Bowl in the 2002 season. He signed with the Broncos before the 2004 season and was selected to the Pro Bowl each of his four years in Denver.

Lets see here.. He had to compete for a spot more then likely he would not have won.. And then be regulated to either backup duty or they cutting him.. So he decides to ask for a release instead of being cut or playing backup...


Either way, he got released/cut/quit because he was not in the teams starting plans..

That is exactly how you want it to work. For instance wouldn't you love to have a young DB that could take that roster spot upon which Surtain is loitering?
