The Broncos newest quarterback hasn't even played a game yet but fans already want to get their hands on his jersey. The team picked up rookie Paxton Lynch from the University of Memphis and people are excited to see what he can do.
The Broncos Team Store began receiving inquiries about jerseys almost immediately. The store can print jerseys on the spot as soon as his number is official. On Friday, the Broncos tweeted out a picture with Lynch holding a number 12 jersey.

"I think everyone’s excited to see what the rookie quarterback can do," said Kalie Kollmar, Brocos Team store manager.
Kollmar expects to receive a shipment of jerseys from Nike in the next couple of weeks.
Shadd Ring is a lifelong fan and posts videos for the Bronco Planet blog. He said the fan base has good reason to get behind this pick.
"He’s going to play aggressive. He can run, he can scramble; so he’s going to be great for the option," said Ring.
Broncos fans even created a Facebook fan page for Lynch.
