It appears that John Lynch’s playing career is going to continue, and it will be with a powerhouse. John Clayton of ESPN is reporting that Lynch, who basically asked for and got his release from the Broncos recently, has signed a one-year, $1.5 million dollar deal with the AFC Champion New England Patriots.
The Pats are a great fit for Lynch, who have been looking for help in the back end of the secondary after losing safety Tank Williams for the season with a knee injury. Williams was to be used about 10 to 25 plays a game according to Clayton, and now Lynch can fit that role.
Lynch was not happy with his lack of playing time with the Broncos, and left the team after having a talk with coach Mike Shanahan. He and the team decided it was best for the 36-year-old to move on, and now he will and will have a chance to make an impact and make another run for a Super Bowl title.
