Phillip Lindsay agrees to deal with Colts

Running back Phillip Lindsay said in April that he was looking for the right fit before signing a contract for the 2022 season and he apparently found it in Indianapolis.

Lindsay’s agent Mike McCartney announced on Tuesday that Lindsay has agreed to terms with the Colts. It’s a one-year deal for Lindsay with the AFC South team.

Lindsay played 10 games for the Texans last season before getting cut in November. He was claimed by the Dolphins and played in four more games. He ran 88 times for 249 yards and a touchdown overall and he ran for 2,550 yards for the Broncos in his first three NFL seasons.

The Colts have Jonathan Taylor back as their top running back and Nyheim Hines has been talked up as a receiver and change of pace back, so Lindsay will have to make a strong impression to carve out a role in the offense.

  1. This guy has cooties. Denver, Houston for 1 year, Miami for 1 year….Hmm.

    Something’s up.

  2. When are the Colts going to realize they already have one of the best backs in the league? Get over Hynes already, you dolts.

  3. He is a tough guy and will make the team but he isn’t going to do much with those two ahead of him.

  4. Philip Lindsay is a disaster. I get that we don’t have the best o-line in Houston…

    But, he averaged 2.8 yards a carry during his career with the Texans. This guy shouldn’t even be on an actual roster.

  5. Philip Lindsay is an odd player. He’s the rare small RB that is good between the tackles, but he’s awful at receiving and pass blocking, and has some injury issues as well. That’s why he’s been cut during the season a few times already and the second the Colts need an injury replacement at another position, he’ll be cut again.

  6. As a Dolphin fan, I wish him the best. He showed burst, reliable hands and maturity, behind the NFL worst offensive line.

    Anyone who watched him in Miami would agree.

  7. Seems like a really poor choice on his part. Unless no other team wanted him I don’t know why he would go to a team with a clearly cemented number one back and an established backup. Lindsey was good during his time in Denver, and honestly I think the Broncos were dumb to pay Gordon what they did when they could have received more bang for their buck with Lindsey. That being said, if he keeps bouncing from team to team like this he’ll be out of the league soon. He needs to find a place that will at least give him a shot in camp to take the lead back role or at least play in a near equal timeshare.

    Yeah, I think they figured that out when he averaged a TD and over 100 yards a game last season. He did that with only 20 carries a game and sure they could give it to him 30 times a game, but it’s smarter to have a couple more guys to share the load instead of running your elite back into the ground.
