Agent Leigh Steinberg chimes in on Paxton Lynch’s critics

Admiring the young arms this weekend at Sports Authority Field at Mile High will be Leigh Steinberg, the agent for both Patrick Mahomes II and Paxton Lynch. Steinberg says that Lynch hasn’t been given a fair shake when it comes to the criticism the second-year signal-caller has received.

In an interview with Gil Whiteley and Mark Jackson of Mile High Sports AM 1340 | FM 104.7, Steinberg notes Lynch’s limited chances to play and says that’s why he can’t be written off.

“For Paxton, I think people have to realize that he has never had a series of games to get him into a rhythm,” Steinberg said. “People who are ready to conclude that Paxton Lynch simply can’t make it in the NFL are looking at such an incomplete measure. Give Paxton Lynch a year in which you’ve named him the starter, designed an offense around him and then we’ll see what it looks like… I believe he can be a quality quarterback in the NFL.”
