NS Houston Texas stun NFL after beating the AFC’s current No. 1 seed in Tennessee Titans in Week 11 and now have another surprising move up their sleeve. As CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora reported Tuesday, the club has decided to cut back running veterans Phillip Lindsay. This puts an end to Lindsay’s rather brief stint in Houston after he signed with the team last season.
The 27-year-old initially became a restricted free agent last spring after spending the first three seasons of his career with Dancer broncos. A few days after the freelance company opened, Denver denied Lindsay the first right of refusal, which subsequently released him as an unrestricted freelance agent and finally led to an agreement with Houston.
While Lindsay has returned to efficiency during his brief career (Pro Bowler in 2018), his time with Texas hasn’t been as productive as either side might have hoped. In a backyard crowded with David Jonson, Rex Burkhead, Mark Ingram (now with Saints) and Lindsay, the former Colorado untrained free agent has played just 16.48% of the Texas offensive line this season.
Lindsay will now be but will be exempt, and if he does clear, he will become an unrestricted freelance agent. La Canfora notes that Lindsay is a popular name in terms of deals – Baltimore Raven asked – and he hopes more teams are interested in him, so it looks like he could be asked for an exemption.
