If you haven’t heard the news, John Lynch officially decided to retire and will hold a press conference on Monday.
I just wanted to take a quick minute to thank him for all of he’s done: both on and off the field. John Lynch has been an amazing presence on the Broncos. I remember hearing the news that he signed with the Broncos and went out the next day to pick up his Jersey. I’ve been proudly wearing it ever since.
Like Shannon Sharpe, Lynch has gone out with some gas left in the tank. While I’d love to see him play another year, it’s also good that he’s not Willie Mayes dropping fly balls in the outfield.
I’ll write more later, but I wanted to say “thanks”. If you read into the story, you’ll see that he’s going to retire both as a Buc, and a Bronco. I know in the NFL your retiring teams are a little meaningless, but it’s really cool to see that he’s appreciated his time in Denver – even if it’s a fraction of how much Denver’s appreciated him.
