Two-time 1,000-yard rusher Phillip Lindsay agreed to a one-year deal with the Indianapolis Colts, his agent Mike McCartney announced on Twitter on Tuesday.

The running back recorded those 1,000-yard campaigns in his first two NFL seasons with the Denver Broncos and was a Pro Bowl selection as a rookie in 2018.

However, he had just 751 total rushing yards over the past two seasons. Lindsay and the Broncos parted ways after he gained 502 yards during the 2020 campaign.

Lindsay signed with the Houston Texans in 2021 and had just 130 rushing yards and a meager 2.6 average per rush in 10 games before being released. He finished the season with the Miami Dolphins and rushed for 119 yards in four games.

Lindsay, who turns 28 in July, will be competing for a backup role with Indianapolis. Star back Jonathan Taylor led the NFL with 1,811 rushing yards and 18 touchdowns last season while second-stringer Nyheim Himes is a solid contributor.

Overall, Lindsay has rushed for 2,799 yards and 18 touchdowns and caught 81 passes for 510 yards and two scores in 56 games (33 starts).
