Report: Steelers Hosting QB Paxton Lynch For Visit On Tuesday

The Pittsburgh Steelers will more than likely be adding another quarterback to their roster this week and one reportedly is in town visiting with the team on Tuesday.

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Steelers are hosting former first-round quarterback Paxton Lynch for a visit on Tuesday. Lynch was originally drafted in the first-round of the 2016 NFL Draft out of Memphis by the Denver Broncos.

Lynch only last two seasons with the Broncos and he started just four games for them on his way to completing 79 of 128 pass attempts for 792 yards with four touchdowns and four interceptions.

Lynch signed with the Seattle Seahawks earlier this year but failed to make their 53-man roster after appearing in three of their preseason games.

Steelers offensive coordinator Randy Fichtner has string ties to the Memphis program so it’s understandable that he’d have some interest in Lynch. The Steelers lost staring quarterback Ben Roethlisberger for the rest of the season on Sunday due to an elbow injury and since then Devlin Hodges has been promoted from the practice squad to backup Mason Rudolph moving forward.
