Lynch done?

Free agency is one of the facts of life in the NFL, and often favorite players come and go with the years. One of the Bucs all time greats that was tough to lose a few years ago was John Lynch. Through cost cutting measures to get under the salary cap, and some premature speculation that he was pretty much done anyway at his "advanced age", it was hard to see him go. He was a role model on and off the field - A leader in the locker room and in the community.

Now comes word that he's leaving the Broncos. This time he just might be done for real. There's not many football players with the class and character like John Lynch, or that could lower the boom on a ball carrier like he could, and did. If this turns out to be it, well.....we'll probably see him on Sunday NFL telecasts somewhere, and eventually on the steps of Canton in a fitted HOF jacket.

Salute to ya #47!
