The Broncos reached a three-year, $9 million agreement with former Bucs safety John Lynch.

Included in the deal is a $2.5 million signing bonus.

Lynch, 32, took the weekend to think about his opportunities and was considering a trip to talk to the Oakland Raiders, who signed former teammate Warren Sapp on Saturday. But Lynch decided to go to the Broncos over the Jets when Denver's offer went to $3 million a season.

It was a tough choice to not go to the Jets. Lynch is the godfather of coach Herman Edwards' only child and he is very tight with the Jets coach.

The Broncos had a busy Monday. Along with signing Lynch, the Broncos signed former Chargers defensive end Raylee Johnson to a three-year, $3.3 million deal that included a $1 million signing bonus, and former Lions defensive tackle Luther Elliss.

The timing of Lynch's agreement was interesting. He accepted his deal with the Broncos close to the time of a Raiders press conference involving Sapp.

The hard-hitting Lynch, recognized as a team leader, played 11 seasons with the Bucs. He played last season with bone spurs in his neck, but he received clearance to play from doctors two weeks ago.

Lynch is gonna be a good fit for Denver. But with that neck injury he is a risk for Denver, if he aggrivates that injury he may not be able to play again. As far as Keyshawn and Sapp being gone. they didn't really put up any good numbers last year so good ridence. (I am a Bucs fan)

Johson didnt put up numbers cause he wasnt there, dont know why still.

Keyshaun was gone, because he didn't get along with "Chucky". and if you don't get along with the coach you're probably not gonna get much playing time.

ACK! This sucks, Sapp to the Raiders, Lynch to the Broncos.

Just hope the Chiefs are ready for it.
