The Miami Dolphins said they returned Philip Lindsay a waiver waiver on Wednesday.
The team announced the addition to the active roster shortly after Lindsay’s agent, Mike McCartney, announced it on Twitter…
In his fourth season in the NFL, Lindsay brings speed and more competition to the Dolphins’ backfield in a fast-paced attack that is ranked 31st in the NFL with Miles Gaskin leading the way.
After spending his first three seasons with the Denver Broncos, Lindsay was with Houston this year before they dropped him on Tuesday. He ran 130 yards and hit a touchdown after 50 tries in 10 games and one start with Houston.
The 27-year-old Lindsay has walked 1,000 yards in each of his first two pro seasons, hitting 1,037 yards and nine quick touchdowns as a rookie in 2018, followed by 1,011 and seven touchdowns in 2019. He also caught 35 assists in each of these seasons. seasons. Since then, he has run 632 yards and has two touchdowns with one touchdown on 10 traps.
In the 2018 rookie season, he also made it to the Pro Bowl.
Lindsay will add depth to the dolphin jogging back room, where Malcolm Brown suffered a quadriceps injury after Gaskin, saw Salvon Ahmed grappling with just 2.7 yards per carry, worked with Patrick Laird and upgraded him last week. Miami Hurricanes star Duke Johnson is also a seasoned NFL quarterback on the training team.
The Dolphins also announced that they have signed midfielder Vince Bigel to the active training squad following knee injury, Brennan Scarlett, as noted by coach Brian Flores on Wednesday morning, and that they have signed midfielder Vinton McManis to the training team.
