Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay is finally moving out of his parents’ house
Most Pro Bowl running backs don’t live in their parents’ house. Denver Broncos Pro Bowl running back Phillip Lindsay isn’t like most though. An undrafted free agent in possession of a three-year, $1.725 million contract, Lindsay did not buy a home when he landed in Denver. Instead, he bunked with his parents, who have a home in the area.
That is no more, however. On Wednesday, Lindsay announced on Ian Rapoport’s RapSheet + Friends that he is now a homeowner.
“Yeah, I am,” said Lindsay on if he is a homeowner, via Jon Heath of the Broncos Wire. “Like you said, it’s about time for me to move out and I think that I played it smart.”
“I was able to save some money for me to be able to get a place and also help myself out after getting a place,” Lindsay continued. “I just think it was the right choice to do right now. I definitely am going to move out and be an adult now.”
Though Lindsay isn’t paid like most Pro Bowl running backs, the Broncos did help him out in the offseason. In March, the team gave him a bonus of just over $200k. That may have gone a long way towards him becoming a homeowner. He will have to wait until the 2021 free agency, however, to get the payday he so deserves.
On the season, Lindsay has 584 yards and five touchdowns on the ground while running for 4.9 yards per attempt. He has also tallied 25 receptions for 160 yards on the year.
