Latest News

Broncos | Phillip Lindsay tough to bring down in 2019 (Tue Apr 7, 09:12 PM) - Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay averaged a broken tackle once every 7.7 carries in 2019 - a dramatically higher rate than he enjoyed as a rookie in 2018 (19.2). His 29 broken tackles last season were tied with Derrick Henry and Alvin Kamara for the third-highest total in the league.

Our View: Lindsay runs with a ton of heart, and he's the only player in NFL history to enter the league undrafted and rush for 1,000 yards in back-to-back seasons to begin his career. Things are going to be different this year with Melvin Gordon added in free agency. Gordon will be the top back for the Broncos and Lindsay will serve as a change-of-pace back.

Broncos | Phillip Lindsay extension on back burner (Tue Mar 31, 09:41 PM) - Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay is set to become a restricted free agent in 2021, and while general manager John Elway has yet to completely dismiss the possibility of signing him to a long-term contract, he doesn't appear to be motivated to address the matter anytime soon.'We'll see what happens. ... That's not a guarantee,' Elway said.

Our View: The Broncos made the move to add Melvin Gordon in free agency, thus supplanting Lindsay as the top option in the backfield. Not only did they add Gordon, but they made him the 6th-highest paid RB in the league by paying him $8 million per year. Lindsay is under contract but after back-to-back 1,000 yard seasons many thought the Broncos would re-work the 2018 undrafted free agent's deal. That may not be the case now.

Falcons | Todd Gurley's hands betrayed him in 2019 (Sun Mar 29, 05:30 PM) - Atlanta Falcons RB Todd Gurley was charged with the dropped pass on a league-high 14.3 percent of his targets in 2019 as a member of the Los Angeles Rams. Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay (12.5) and Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (11.1) were the only other qualified running backs with a drop rate of higher than nine percent.

Our View: Gurley got a one-year, 'prove it' deal with the Falcons. It would be great for him and the team if he could be more reliable as a target out of the backfield in 2020.
