Paxton Lynch hung out with Hue Jackson last weekend

New, comments

Super Bowl weekend is behind us at this point, and it featured plenty of random athletes, coaches, and celebrities on hand enjoying the festivities. One such "random" pairing was Memphis quarterback Paxton Lynch and Cleveland Browns head coach Hue Jackson.

Lynch is represented by Leigh Steinberg. The one-time super agent has been making a comeback in the business, and on Saturday, held his annual Super Bowl party. Jackson was invited to it, and just so happened to meet up with one of the top quarterback prospects in this year's draft.

I'm tempted to get a rumor going with this, and just the headline alone might get rumors started. However, for now, Lynch is still falling behind Cal QB Jared Goff and North Dakota State QB Carson Wentz in a lot of mock drafts. Hue Jackson and the Browns could very well end up deciding Lynch is worth a pick, but for now, the rumors have focused on Wentz to the Browns. It could all just be rumors circulated in order to push Wentz up someone else's draft board, so take it with a grain of salt.
