Rookie Paxton Lynch is still in the running for the Denver Broncos quarterback job.
Coach Gary Kubiak went to great lengths to assure reporters that Lynch was still very much in the conversation.
“He’s always been in the mix,” Kubiak said Saturday, via Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk. “I just told you guys that he’s behind the other two from a knowledge standpoint, but we’ve been out there competing every day. Everybody is in competition to play.”
Kubiak could just be handling things diplomatically to ensure that all three of his quarterbacks keep their heads up and fight for the role. That said, Elway has spoken highly of the youngster, and Mark Sanchez didn’t exactly impress in his audition Saturday night. It would still be a surprise, though, if Lynch won the role.
