NFL Veteran Signs With CFL Team After Leaving Miami Dolphins

Former San Francisco 49ers defensive end Aaron Lynch has decided to leave the NFL after seven seasons. The 31-year-old South Florida product had stints with the 49ers, Chicago Bears, and Jacksonville Jaguars and was listed on the Miami Dolphins rookie minicamp roster earlier this month. He will take his talents up north to play for the Canadian Football League.

Miami Dolphins Aaron Lynch Switches Leagues With Move To CFL

Aaron Lynch has decided to join the CFL's Montreal Alouettes ten years after being drafted in the NFL. The move comes just ten days after the former Jacksonville Jaguar worked out with the Cleveland Browns and Miami Dolphins this spring but did not contract with either team. Now, the defensive end will join safety J.R. Reed, who was also a part of the 2020 Jaguars roster for a few months.

Cleveland-born Lynch was drafted by the San Francisco 49ers in the fifth round of the 2014 NFL Draft. He had a promising start to his career, recording 12.5 sacks and 22 tackles-for-loss in his first two years with the team. However, he was not able to keep up the production and was not resigned in 2018.

He then signed with the Chicago Bears, where he had three sacks and his first career interception. He finished his two seasons in Chicago with five sacks and 22 tackles, including his 2019 season, during which he played every game for the second time in his career. He would finish his NFL career in Jacksonville, where he only had one sack—on Baker Mayfield.

If he makes the roster, Lynch will play his first professional football game since the 2020 season after four years of inactivity. While 31, he still has much to give to a team and will be a solid defensive player for the reigning Grey Cup champion Montreal Alouettes.
