ENGLEWOOD http://www.arizonacardinalsteamonline.c ... phy-jersey , Colo. (AP) — Denver Broncos coach Vance Joseph said former first-round pick Paxton Lynch was “obviously motivated” by his demotion to third-string quarterback last week “and that’s a good sign. He’s upset and he should be upset.”Lynch might not have enough time to channel that frustration and salvage a roster spot.Chad Kelly of Ole Miss, “Mr. Irrelevant” as the final pick of the 2017 draft, has outworked and outplayed Lynch all summer and in both of Denver’s exhibition games.He’s expected to get a long look in relief of starter Case Keenum on Friday night in Washington as general manager John Elway decides whether to add a veteran backup instead.That likely leaves Lynch with mop-up duty at best. He might even have to wait until Denver’s exhibition finale at Arizona to persuade the Broncos brass to keep him around.After leapfrogging Lynch, Kelly had another solid performance, throwing for 90 yards and a touchdown on 7-of-9 passing against Chicago before leaving a 23-10 lead to Lynch, who again faltered as the Bears came back to win 24-23 Saturday night.Afterward, Lynch said he never wanted the No. 2 job he lost to Kelly .“I want to be THE quarterback. I don’t want to be a backup and I definitely don’t want to be third-string quarterback,” Lynch said. “The cards have been dealt to this point in time and I’m not quitting. I’ll never quit. My mom never quit. My dad never quit. My brother never quit. I’m never going to quit and I’m working hard.”It’s just not paying off for the former Memphis QB who hasn’t shown the progress the Broncos expected entering his third season in the NFL even with Trevor Siemian, whom he couldn’t beat out the past two summers, now playing in Minnesota.By many measures, Lynch has actually regressed since Elway moved up to select Lynch.He’s won just one of his four NFL starts Andy Isabella Jersey , and that was in his rookie year when he went 1-1 with two TDs and an interception. Last year, he was 0-2 with one TD and three interceptions.In the preseason, his slide is even more dramatic:— 2016: 40 for 68 for 458 yards with four touchdowns and two interceptions.— 2017: 16 for 24 for 90 yards with no touchdowns and no interceptions.— 2018: 11 for 22 for 63 yards with no touchdowns and one interception.Lynch was booed when he entered the game against the Bears at Mile High. Denver’s fan base has apparently had enough of the man Elway envisioned as his next franchise quarterback.“I feel bad for Paxton, but our fans want to win,” Joseph said, adding that Lynch “has to ignore it and go play. It’s professional football. No one is going to hold your hand, so he has to go out there and perform.”That tough love approach is a departure from the kid-glove treatment Lynch enjoyed in the past .Even when Lynch was having a tough time digesting the playbook and the speed of the game, unable to use proper footwork or decipher defenses to capitalize on his natural talents, the Broncos brass kept its faith in him.With Lynch struggling this preseason, Kelly, who missed his entire rookie season last year while recovering from wrist and ankle injuries Clelin Ferrell Jersey , has gone 21 of 30 for 267 yards, three TDs, an interception and two sacks.Lynch’s demotion puts him on notice with roster cuts looming.“When I first got the news, I was pretty upset about it because I know how hard I work, I know how bad I want to play and I know how much this means to me,” Lynch said. “Sometimes you go through tough tests just to take you to a whole other level. I’m taking it that way and working my butt off.”Lynch said he realizes poor quarterback play is especially untenable in Denver, where Elway and Peyton Manning won Super Bowls.“I just haven’t been playing well,” he said. “That’s not acceptable, especially playing quarterback here, you’ve got to play well and give your team an opportunity to win every week.”Lynch insists his confidence isn’t shaken.“Yeah, if you don’t believe in yourself then no one else is going to believe in you Josh Oliver Jersey ,” he said. “That’s what I have to do. I have to hang on that, come to work every day and get better.”MILITARY SALUTEBroncos receiver Demaryius Thomas traded his autographed jersey to a U.S. Airman who participated in USAA’s “Salute to Service NFL Boot Camp” at the team’s training facilities Tuesday.In return, Thomas received a pair of military challenge coins , one from the 1st Space Battalion and another from a Chief Master Sergeant.“It’s always good to see them come out and support us, and we can support them back,” Thomas said.The ninth-year pro was the only player to receive military medallions in exchange for his jersey.“I’m trying to decide if I they’re going to travel with me for the season or they’re going in the locker with me or I’m going to take them home,” Thomas said. “I think I want to travel with them.”Notes: WR Carlos Henderson, who failed to report to training camp while dealing with family issues, visited general manager John Elway at team headquarters Tuesday morning.—— Dalvin Cook hasn’t lost a step despite spending nearly a year recovering from a torn ACL.The second-year running back was on the field for 80 percent of the Vikings’ snaps on offense in Week 1, his first game since going down in Week 4 last season.More Vikings coveragePhotos of the Week: 7/21/19 – 7/27/19Rookie Bradbury is central figure to Vikings’ overhauled offensive lineVikings depth at cornerback being tested, Hughes still not clearedPlayers to watch at Minnesota Vikings 2019 training campTop Tweets: Vikings WR Diggs makes push for All-NFL Style TeamCook averaged a pedestrian 2.5 yards per carry in his return http://www.jacksonvillejaguarsteamonlin ... -ii-jersey , but was active in the passing game, finishing with 95 total yards on 22 touches.Quarterback Kirk Cousins looked his way early and often in their first game together. Cook was targeted seven times, second only to receiver Adam Thielen, who led the team with 12.The damage: 40 rushing yards on 16 carries with a long of 15, and six catches for a career-high 55 receiving yards with a long of 17.Even his fumble, potentially costly though it was with the Vikings nursing a one-score lead in the second quarter, came at the end of an otherwise spectacular run.Meanwhile, backup Latavius Murray was on the field for just 14 snaps. The veteran made the most of his workload, racking up 42 yards on 11 carries, but was a nonfactor in the passing game.C.J. Ham was targeted twice, but had no carries.<em>Other notes:</em>— Head coach Mike Zimmer has had nothing but praise for rookie cornerback Mike Hughes since the draft Ryquell Armstead Jersey , and he followed through in Week 1. Hughes appeared on 79 percent of the Vikings’ snaps on defense.— The Vikings made it through a full game without further damage to their offensive line. Riley Reiff, Tom Compton, Brett Jones, Rashod Hill and Mike Remmers were on the field for all 71 snaps on offense.— Thielen and Stefon Diggs are both regarded as the Vikings’ No. 1 receiver, but the former had a definitive edge in Week 1. Thielen was on the field for seven more snaps than Diggs, while Diggs had just six targets to Thielen’s 12.— Defensive end Danielle Hunter was on the field for 88 percent of the Vikings’ snaps on defense, his largest share of the workload since Week 10 of last season.— Cornerback Xavier Rhodes was listed as “questionable” with a hamstring injury heading into Week 1. He played all 66 of the Vikings’ snaps on defense anyway.OFFENSEPLAYERPlays (71)%Reiff71100%Compton71100%Jones71100%Hill71100%Remmers71100%Cousins71100%Thielen6896%Diggs6186%Rudolph5983%Cook5780%Treadwell3854%Morgan3042%Murray1420%Ham1318%Conklin913%Coley68%DEFENSEPLAYERPlays (66)%Sendejo66100%Smith66100%Barr66100%Kendricks66100%Rhodes66100%Hunter5888%Hughes5279%Griffen5177%Joseph4974%Richardson4670%Gedeon2944%Waynes2436%Kearse2233%Johnson2233%Weatherly1421%Parry1421%Bower914%Hill46%WIlson23%
