Report: Lynch wants to leave Broncos

John Lynch's days with the Denver Broncos appear to be over.

The 16-year NFL safety met with coach Mike Shanahan on Wednesday and told Denver's KCNC-TV that Shanahan gave him permission to explore other opportunities.

That could be playing for another team, or retiring to perhaps go into the broadcast booth.

Lynch skipped a team meeting Tuesday night and was excused from Wednesday's workouts for what Shanahan termed personal reasons.

Lynch was told he'd compete for a starting safety job when he took a pay cut this offseason. With the emergence of Marlon McCree, Lynch didn't play a single snap in the nickel or dime packages during the first week of training camp.

    We love you John. The idea that they would let you go after all you've done for the Broncos, outrageous. You deserve a raise and a thank you.

    John Lynch has added another dimension to the Bronco's defense; why should he have to compete for a starting position as a safety? Check out his record.....sad day for the team and fans to have to hear this!
