Denver Broncos Roster Overview: Running Backs and Full Backs
2019 Salary Cap Hit: $575,000
Years under contract: 2
One of the biggest bright spots for the Denver Broncos offense in 2018 was the emergence of electrifying running back Phillip Lindsay. Once he found open space in the offense, it was like watching a lightning bolt fly right past you.
He emerged in a big way in the season opener against the Seattle Seahawks, when he caught a pass and ran it down the sideline for a touchdown.
After Royce Freeman went down due to injury, Lindsay took full advantage and became the starter for the Broncos. His running abilities helped the Denver Broncos put themselves right in contention for the playoffs for a bit. However, as other injuries piled up and the losses resumed, Denver quickly learned that it was not meant to be.
Phillip Lindsay was well on his way to his first Pro Bowl appearance until he hurt his wrist in the second to last game of the year against the Oakland Raiders.
Having a change of pace back, as well as a player that can make an electric play at any moment, is what Lindsay will bring to the Broncos in 2019. He is one of the few that Broncos Country will keep an eye on for this upcoming season. Especially if he can make plays like this.
