DENVER (CBS4) ―
John Lynch is exploring other options for his future and leaving the Denver Broncos, CBS4 News reports.
Lynch and coach Mike Shanahan met Wednesday afternoon. Lynch told Vic Lombardi that Shanahan gave Lynch permission to look for a new team, consider a broadcasting career or retire.
Lynch was not happy over his lack of practice time as he competes for a starting safety position. He took a pay cut to return for his 16th season as an NFL player. But he wanted an opportunity to be a full time starter at safety.
Lynch was not at practice Wednesday morning and had missed a team meeting Tuesday night.
Lynch told Lombardi he would be at Dove Valley Thursday to address the situation further.
Gary Miller reports other teams, like the San Diego Chargers, where Lynch is from, would be interested in him.
