TAMPA (WFLA) – Will 2020 be the lucky year for John Lynch?
On Thursday, Lynch was revealed as one of the 15 finalists for the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s Class of 202
Lynch has been a finalist for the Hall of Fame each of the last eight years. He spent 11 seasons in Tampa Bay and four more with the Denver Broncos. Lynch was a nine-time Pro Bowl selection and a two-time All Pro.
Lynch was one of three former Buccaneers to make the cut to the semifinalist stage in November, along with cornerback Ronde Barber and defensive end Simeon Rice.
Lynch also has the rare distinction of being selected for the Ring of Honor for two franchises, as both the Buccaneers and Broncos enshrined him among their all-time greats in 2016.
