Phillip Lindsay grew up in Aurora, Colorado and became the first Denver Broncos Futures member (middle school program) to sign an NFL contract. Lindsay started 30 games at the University of Colorado, finishing his career as CU’s all-time leader in all-purposes yards (5,926) and yards from scrimmage (4,849). He rushed 765 times for 3,775 yards (4.9 avg.) with 36 touchdowns and caught 117 passes for 1,084 yards (9.3 avg.) with 3 TD's.
Prior to CU, Lindsay attended Denver South High School, where he was selected first-team all-state by The Denver Post as a junior. He finished his prep career as South’s all-time leader in rushing yards (545 att., 4,587 yds., 8.4 avg.)
Lindsay has been impressive in camp and scored his first NFL touchdown on a 19 yard pass from Chad Kelly in the first preseason game of the season. He has looked equally impressive on special teams both as a tackler and a returner. At this point, Lindsay is a lock to make the final roster and join a host of other legendary Broncos who made the team as an undrafted player.
The best undrafted players in Broncos history include Bob Swenson, Rick Karlis, David Treadwell, Steve Watson, Gene Mingo, Lionel Taylor, Greg Kragen, Willie Brown, Dwayne Carswell and Broncos all-time leading receiver Rod Smith.
