During the 2018 NFL Draft, Phillip Lindsay did not hear his name said throughout the entire draft, even after racking up 1, 474 rushing yards and scoring 15 touchdowns as a senior at the University of Colorado. He would then go on to sign a three-year, $1.725 million contract with the Broncos and went on to earn a Pro Bowl nod as a rookie, becoming the first undrafted offensive rookie to ever make the Pro Bowl.
Lindsay earned a base salary of $473,112 in 2018 and none of it went on housing because he was still living in his parents home. Lindsay has actually been at home for the past season and a half, but just recently told NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport that he will be moving out soon.
“Yeah, I am,” Lindsay said on the RapSheet + Friends podcast. “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. I just think it was the right choice to do right now. I definitely am going to move out and be an adult now.”

Despite the Broncos terrible season, Lindsay is on pace to total 1,322 yards from scrimmage and score nine touchdowns this season.
