Lynch gets contract extension.

The Broncos announced on Tuesday that they have extended the contract of safety John Lynch through the 2008 season. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Lynch had 61 tackles, four sacks, and a pair of interceptions during the 2005 season while playing every game for the seventh time in his career. Despite his advancing age (he'll be 35 next season), he remains an important part of the Broncos' secondary and terror for receivers going across the middle, he also earned his seventh Pro Bowl appearance this year.

This article makes me sad, sure I am happy for John Lynch and his family, but I still wish he was playing for the Buccaneers. It should be the Bucs that extended his contract through the 2008 season. John should be retiring as a Buccaneer. However, Bruce Allen and Jon Gruden are to blame for this costly decision. They thought they were saving money, but you can't put a price tag on the person and player that John Lynch is. WE MISS YOU JOHN.
