Tampa Bay releases Lynch

The Jets can now sign John Lynch without having to compensate the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. According to an NFL source, the Buccaneers released the Pro Bowl safety on Tuesday.

Lynch is scheduled to visit the Jets on Thursday and Friday, and if he passes a physical, could sign a contract during the visit.

The Jets are the leading candidate to land Lynch, who would fill their vacancy at strong safety.
