The Denver Broncos selected Paxton Lynch in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft. It didn't take long for the team to give up on their former No. 1 pick.

The Broncos released Lynch before the start of the 2018 season. Lynch struggled mightily in the preseason, getting booed off the field twice.

The Broncos signed Case Keenum in the offseason to be the team's starter, and former Mr. Irrelevant Chad Kelly supplanted Lynch as the team's backup.

Since then, Lynch has worked out with several NFL clubs. On Tuesday, he worked out for the Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles.

ESPN's Field Yates first reported the news.

Lynch made just four starts in his two years in Denver. He completed 61.7 percent of his passes for 792 yards, four touchdowns and four interceptions.

The former Memphis star had a rough stint with the Broncos, but is likely to get another shot given his high selection just a few years ago.
