    Default Terrell Davis' Message to Broncos GM George Paton: Phillip Lindsay Deserves a New Contract

    Denver Broncos GM George Paton revealed last Thursday the team's intent to tender restricted free-agent running back Phillip Lindsay. Paton was unsure at which level Lindsay would be tendered but it'll likely be at the second-round level.

    Such a tender would provide Lindsay with a nice windfall in 2021. Although it'd be just a one-year contract, he'd earn a projected $3,384,000 on the second-round RFA tender, which would represent more than 4x raise over last year's $750,000 salary.

    To Hall-of-Fame running back Terrell Davis, whom Lindsay once importuned for his approval to wear the legendary jersey No. 30, that $3.384M single-year raise isn't enough. In Davis' estimation, Paton needs to show Lindsay the money on a multi-year deal, even if it isn't top-of-the-market level.

    “The Broncos gotta do right by Phillip Lindsay, man,” Davis said on NFL Network. “Listen, the dude came in as an undrafted free agent, came in the first two seasons [with] back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons. And listen, he’s been putting in work, he’s been showing up, doing everything he’s supposed to do.

    TD is what I like to call “Wrong”, very few RB’s are worth a 2nd contact.

    TD is crazy if he thinks Lindsay should be extended for anything more than 2 years 4 million per. Kids already showing signs of being injured. His size and the life span of NFL running backs are against him. Only the elite talents should get nice sized deals like a saquan Barkley Adrian Peterson type guys.

    Not a single recent Big RB contract has worked out in matching value....that market is reset, those newer dudes wanting paydays are f'ed........Barkley, Zeke, Gurley, Mixon, Bell, even McCaffery. Then watching a dude like Mike Davis come behind in Carolina and be serviceable. Shit RB's would be lucky to even sniff Gordons contract his year. Shit Gordon didn't even earn the money he made, no way Lindsay gets paid so to speak after his year. It is what it is.....

    Yes but he’s never been a guy considered to be injury prone so I’m chalking this up as a fluke thing, and also Barkley is special kind of elite whereas Lindsay is undersized and solid as far as a runner.

    Facts! I hope he’s not seeking some huge deal.

    derrick henry is worth every penny and more, and i'd say kamara is as well. . .
    “When we do find that guy, we’ve got to have the continuity on the offensive side to where we can train him and develop him and get him there. This is our fourth offense in probably three or four years. Quarterbacks need to be developed. You don’t find one ready-made. We got to have a solid system in place for when we do go after whatever guy it may be, a young guy or a trade or whatnot.”

    I still think the CMC contract was fine too. This was a year from hell for him but he's still a difference maker. But yeah, Lindsay obviously ain't in that class and if he wants paid big I hope it's not here.

    I could see a 3 yr, ~4 per year with the first two years guaranteed, or something along those lines. I think the Broncos would be foolish to pay more than that as I don't think the market says they should. I'm a big Lindsay fan and love what he (potentially, is he's used better) to the offense, but the market is what it is. I want him wrapped up for 3 years or so, but at the right price for Denver.

    Very few RB’s are worth huge extensions, Lindsay was a nice story but nowhere near worth all the fan drama.

    And about 3mil per and we are good. Very good.



    ----

    The roles have switched. RBs used to get big $ and now they will get smaller $ and its the WR who will now get the big $. Dog is right there are some RB that will pay off with their big $ deals but not too many of them.
