Lynch and the Broncos amicably parted ways after he met with coach Mike Shanahan on July 30.
"He wants to play every down," Shanahan said on July 31. "Heck, I can't blame him. I'm not going to say that he can't."
But with Marlon McRee playing well, Lynch saw little playing time in nickel and dime packages early in training camp. McRee started all 16 regular-season games at safety for San Diego last season.
After leaving Denver, Lynch said he could sign elsewhere.
"I still have a great passion for the game of football," he said at the time. "I still very much love it in my heart. I still feel like I can compete at a Pro Bowl level, but the situation is going to have to be right. I'm not going to just play for any team or any situation."
Lynch played every snap in Denver's last three games last season, but earlier he was taken out on passing downs.
