XFL: Seattle Sea Dragons sign former Pro Bowl RB Phillip Lindsay

Former Pro Bowl running back Phillip Lindsay has signed a deal to join the XFL’s Seattle Sea Dragons.

The 28-year-old 5’8″, 190-pound native of Denver, Colorado finished his first season with the Denver Broncos in 2018 after being signed as an undrafted rookie out of the University of Colorado Boulder, by rushing for 1,037 yards and nine touchdowns while catching 35 passes for 241 yards and another score. He followed that up in 2019 rushing for 1,011 yards and seven touchdowns to become the first undrafted player in league history to rush for +1,000 yards in his first two seasons. His performances in 2018 and 2019 earned him Pro Bowl honors. During an injury-plagued 202o season, which saw Lindsay finish the season on injured reserve, he rushed for 502 yards and one touchdown on 118 carries.

Lindsay played for the Houston Texans and Miami Dolphins in 2021 and with the Indianapolis Colts last season but failed to make a significant impact. Lindsay has rushed for just 298 total yards and one touchdown over the last two years and will now latch onto a role in the XFL to try to revive his professional prospects.

This stint in the XFL should give Lindsay fresh video tape for prospective NFL teams to see, which would hopefully help him latch on with a club heading into training camp later this summer. Lindsay joins a Sea Dragons team that is second in the XFL in rushing and owns a 5-2 overall record, which is second in the XFL North standings behind the undefeated D.C. Defenders.
