Lindsay, Broncos Part Ways Posted by Jeremy Anderson Date: March 19, 2021 38 Views Phillip Lindsay’s time with his hometown Denver Broncos has ended. The Broncos agreed to remove the right-of-first-refusal tender they had placed on the fourth-year running back from the University of Colorado. That makes him an unrestricted free agent. The Broncos will no longer have the ability to match any offer sheet Lindsay signs. Lindsay topped 1,000 yards rushing in each of his first two seasons and scored a combined 16 touchdowns. But his production plummeted last season when he battled injuries and finished with 502 yards rushing and just one touchdown.
