The Miami Dolphins may be on a three-game winning streak, but that won’t stop head coach Brian Flores and general manager Chris Grier from going out of their way to try and improve their football team. And that’s exactly what the Dolphins did moments ago when they claimed the old one Houston Texans running back Phillip Lindsay on waivers.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter:
Dolphin has claimed former RB Phillip Lindsay from the Texans on waivers.

Lindsay, 27, signed with the Denver Broncos as an undrafted free agent in 2018. He spent three seasons with the Broncos, combining more than 2,500 yards and 17 rushing touchdowns. This offseason, Lindsay signed with the Texans, where he remained a non-factor for most of the season. In ten games, the former Houston Texans backer carried the ball 50 times for 130 yards and a touchdown.
Will Phillip Lindsay revolutionize the Dolphins’ offense? Probably not. But for a team that currently ranks at 31st in the NFL in rushing yards per game with 77.4 yards, kicking the tires of a former Pro Bowl running backwards is a good deal.
Not to mention, Lindsay’s uncompromising running style adds another dimension to Miami’s offense. And if anything, that should make a lot of those reps on the goal line and short distance situations a lot more manageable.
Lindsay joins a back room consisting of Myles Gaskin, Salvon Ahmed, Duke Johnson and Patrick Laird – and while I can’t say for sure if Lindsay will revitalize her career in Miami – I think I speak for a large majority of this fanbase. when I say :
I thank the Miami Dolphins for filing a waiver request for Phillip Lindsay.
What do you think of the signing of Miami Dolphins running back Phillip Lindsay? Do you think he can add value to Miami’s lackluster backroom? Will he push Myles Gaskin as the team’s RB1? Let us know in the comments section below!
