Finally, the Seahawks have signed Paxton Lynch to a 2019 futures contract.
- DangeRuss’ previous backups were Brett Hundley (UFA) and Alex McGough (Jags 2019).
- The Broncos selected Lynch out of Memphis with the pick they acquired in a draft-day trade with Seattle. Denver moved up from No. 31, where the Seahawks took offensive lineman Germain Ifedi.

- Plus, there’s always Kaep.
