Phillip Lindsay is eligible for a new contract

Is he going to get one? It sounds like it.

Lindsay is the first undrafted player to rush for over 1,000 yards in each of his first two NFL seasons. He made the Pro Bowl as a rookie. He has given the Broncos tremendous effort despite poor offensive line play and he's been one of the team's most consistent performers week in and week out.

I would like to see Lindsay improve as a receiver this coming offseason and make himself more of an asset in that way. With that said, he's one of the toughest runners in the NFL and with 17 total touchdowns in two seasons in the league, he's exceeded anyone's wildest expectations.

Because he's been in the league for two years now, he's able to negotiate a new contract. The Broncos might as well get something done now.
