Do you guys see a scenario where Phillip Lindsay gets a contract after the 20-21 season even with the money they are paying Melvin Gordon? Assuming Lindsay stays healthy and has a reasonable 750-1000 yard season will the Broncos give him the contract he deserves or try and get him on the cheap with a qualifying offer since he is an RFA?
From a business perspective I understand trying to get him for cheap another year and let the 2 year deal on Gordon play out, but I also feel like you have to pay up at some point and make the other guy happy too. If it is a split backfield like most of us think it will be, Lindsay might not like making around $6-7 million less than Gordon for two straight years but it is a business at the end of the day. Just hope to see my boy rocking orange and blue for a long time.
Take care guys!
