After one of his final preseason practices this week, Lynch said he "absolutely" wants to stay in Denver.

"I've said that since Day 1; I've wanted to be 'the guy' here," he added. "I've gone through some things, I've struggled, I haven't played well at times and at times I have played well. I've just got to find that consistency of constantly playing well. And I know that I can get there."
