RB free agent Phillip Lindsay agrees to one-year contract with Colts

Phillip Lindsay has a new home.

The running back has agreed to a one-year contract with the Indianapolis Colts, his agent announced Tuesday.

Lindsay struggled mightily as a nomadic running back in 2021, starting the season with the Houston Texans and averaging a paltry 2.6 yards per carry on 50 attempts before his release in late November. Lindsay landed with the Miami Dolphins a day later and managed to improve his numbers slightly to 3.1 yards per carry on 38 attempts.

Statistically, Lindsay was essentially a non-factor in 2021 with both teams, rushing for 249 yards and a touchdown on 88 attempts while catching just four passes for 45 yards and a touchdown. He joins a Colts team that already has All-Pro stud Jonathan Taylor and versatile back Nyheim Hines on its depth chart.

Lindsay offers potential as a waterbug type runner capable of impact on the ground and in the air. He will have to fight for playing time if he is to return to the 1,000+ yard form of his first two NFL seasons.
