RB - HOU
Former Broncos RB has reportedly agreed to a one-year deal with the Houston Texans.
It's reportedly a one-year deal worth $3.25 million and $500,000 in incentives. Lindsay will be joining a crowded backfield that already features David Johnson and Mark Ingram. This isn't a good landing spot for his fantasy value.
The Denver Broncos have rescinded their original-round tender on RB Phillip Lindsay.
This was reportedly a mutual decision between the two sides and it means that Lindsay is now a free agent. Denver replaced him by agreeing to terms with former Vikings RB Mike Boone earlier this week. Lindsay's landing spot will determine his fantasy value, but it'll be tough for him to be a dependable option regardless of where he goes.
Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay has been given the low RFA tender, per ESPN's Adam Schefter.
The 26-year old running back rushed for over 1,000 yards in 2020. This marks back-to-back seasons eclipsing the 1,000-yard mark for Lindsay. With the Broncos placing the low Restricted Free Agent (RFA) tender on Lindsay, this means other teams can offer more and the Broncos can opt to either match the offer or risk losing him without compensation. The undrafted running back is entering his fourth-year and still has a lot of miles left on him, including the massive chip on his shoulder from being a draft snub. Expect Lindsay to seek other offers as Broncos RB Melvin Gordon usurped the lead-back role in 2020 and appears to have it locked down heading into 2021.
The Broncos have not yet decided on Phillip Lindsay's tender as a restricted free agent, but the Broncos have expressed interest in bring him back, per James Palmer.
Lindsay would be due over $1.7M for the 2021 season, more than he made in his first three years with the Broncos after going undrafted in 2018. With Melvin Gordon the clearcut lead back, the proposed tender is a lot of money for a backup. The Broncos may try to work out an extension with him before he officially hits free agency on Wednesday afternoon. As of now though, no decisions have been made.
Mike Klis of 9 News is reporting that the Broncos plan to give RB Phillip Lindsay a restricted free agent tender.
“ He’s (Lindsay) a restricted free agent, we do plan on tendering him. I’m not sure what level but we want Phillip here,” said Broncos GM George Paton. He could could make up to $2.13 million as an original round tender. Lindsay dealt with hip/knee injuries and was eventually placed on injured reserve in 2020. The Broncos will most likely bring him back to share RB duties with Melvin Gordon. Lindsay logged 118 carries for 502 rushing yards along with seven receptions for 28 receiving yards and one touchdown across 11 games in 2020.
