Paxton Lynch has found a new team.
The Seahawks are planning to sign the 24-year-old quarterback, according to a report from Seattle station Sports Radio KJR. Lynch did not play in 2018 after he was cut by the Broncos in early September.

Lynch reportedly met with the Bills shortly after he became a free agent. He also had been linked to the Jaguars, Buccaneers and Titans, amongst others.
Lynch struggled in the preseason and was demoted to third string on the Broncos depth chart before he was released. He was booed off the field after passing for just 24 yards and throwing an interception against the Vikings in mid-August.
The Broncos selected Lynch out of Memphis in the first round of the 2016 draft. He appeared in five regular season games over two seasons with Denver.
The Seahawks finished the season with a 10-6 record and earned the fifth seed in the NFC playoffs, where they fell to the Cowboys in the wild-card round.
