Phillip Lindsay (sign him NOW)

Post by Minkah'n Big Plays » Wed Nov 24, 2021 1:55 pm

He would be perfect as our RB#2, and is way better than Snell.

I don't see any issues here, I think he still has something left in the tank, take his Texans production this year with a grain of salt.

Discuss.

Done with the Texans, he will be signed as we head into month of December.

Who would look good running for that team? PL looked like he had plenty in tank year before with the Broncos.

He's 27 with a YPC average of 4.8 for his career prior to short stint in Houston.

If Lindsay is done, how would you characterize Snell, Ballage and/or MacFarland? As dust, perhaps? Three blobfish wearing Steeler jerseys?

I have always liked his style.
But don't we have some RB's on the practice that are just as bad as Snell and McFarland that can step right in.
LOL.

Just checked,
Looks like Trey Edmunds is still on the practice squad.

Saw a Raven article talking about picking Lindsay up.

Tomlin was late to the presser yesterday because they had an emergency meeting to discuss Lindsay

I'd sign him and cut MacFarland immediately.

Similar type of back, but one's had a pair of 1,000-yard seasons and the other likely won't total 1,000 yards in his career.

He'd be an ideal complement to the Naj.

He was claimed on waivers. We may have made a claim.

Tomlin believes his RBs come with run flat tires.

Only needs one. The other three on the roster don’t need to do shit.

He’s got dis…

I get that. More of a reaction that our RB room generally sucks, still.

Dolphins had first waiver and they took him

I’m sure Steelers put in a claim just didn’t get down the line
