Colorado running back Phillip Lindsay was one of eight undrafted free agents the Broncos signed, the team announced Tuesday.
Lindsay rushed for 3,770 yards in his career, ranking second in school history. He gained 1,474 yards and scored 14 touchdowns on 301 carries last season.
He spent 14 years as a coach with the New England Patriots, moving from an assistant in 2004 to the defensive coordinator for the past six seasons. He became a head coach in February when the Lions hired him following the Patriots’ loss in the Super Bowl.
After learning about Patricia’s past, Lions president Rod Wood had little hesitation defending the coach.
Nicolas, a former sixth-round pick from Virginia Tech, spent last year on the physically unable to perform list because of a ruptured patellar tendon suffered in January.
While he hasn’t been able to resume his NFL career, he is in talks with the Canadian Football League, McMahon said. Greene was a few games shy of qualifying for his NFL pension, his attorney added.
He’s genuinely a really nice, good guy, McMahon said. He’s never been in trouble. Everything was going well out with the Chiefs and this happened.
Running back Paul Perkins has been waived by the Giants with a non-football injury, the team announced Thursday afternoon.
After selecting Saquon Barkley No. 2 overall in last month’s NFL Draft, Perkins’ days on the roster were numbered as the Penn State product will likely be a three-down contributor and the Giants also signed veteran Jonathan Stewart as a free agent back in March.
