The Broncos used him as a rotational pass rusher
ENGLEWOOD Royce Freeman Jersey , Colo. (AP) — Denver Broncos rookie rushing sensation Phillip Lindsay is going to the Pro Bowl on the NFL’s dime even though he won’t play in the all-star game because he’s recovering from an operation on his right wrist.Lindsay became the first undrafted offensive rookie to earn a Pro Bowl selection, but he was injured on Christmas Eve at Oakland. His recovery and rehabilitation from wrist surgery is expected to sideline him for three months.On Tuesday, Lindsay announced he’ll attend the Pro Bowl as a social media correspondent.He told the Broncos website that he’ll “be going around doing a lot of interviews with fans, with teammates and players.“Just having a good time and making it fun for fans to get to see what it’s like to be in the Pro Bowl. It’s going to be — the whole entire time I’m there — about my experience at the Pro Bowl.”The Broncos said the league will pay for Lindsay’s trip expenses. Players who don’t participate in the game typically aren’t eligible for the pool of money divvied up among the game’s winners and losers.Broncos stars Von Miller and Chris Harris Jr. are planning to play in the game. Miller is the game’s reigning MVP and Harris recently recovered from a broken right leg that sidelined him for the final month of the season. Without him, the Broncos lost their last four games to finish 6-10, costing second-year coach Vance Joseph his job.Last month, Miller offered to do anything he could for Lindsay to attend the game in Orlando, Florida, on Jan. 27.“I’ve got a room for him John Elway Jersey ,” Miller said on Dec. 27. “I know he likes to bring the whole family. I don’t know if he can bring the whole fam out, but I’ve got a room for him. If anything, he can share the bed with me. I’ll do whatever I can to make sure he’s at the Pro Bowl.”Snubbed from the NFL combine and ignored during the NFL draft, Lindsay chose the Broncos over the Ravens because his mother suggested he stay in Denver and live at home his rookie season.The former University of Colorado star rushed for 1,037 yards and nine touchdowns despite not starting until midseason when fellow rookie (and third-round pick) Royce Freeman got hurt. Lindsay posted a 5.4-yard rushing average and became just the third undrafted rookie to top 1,000 yards. Linebacker Shaq Barrett played only 275 defensive snaps in 13 games last season. He knew his best option in free agency would be a one-year, prove-it deal with a team that would give him more playing time.He hopes his one-year, $5 million deal with the Buccaneers turns into a multi-year deal this time next year.“Last year I didn’t play as much so I knew I wasn’t going to be getting nothing crazy,” Barrett said Womens Joe Flacco Jersey , via video from Pewter Report. “Just to prove like my worth is all I wanted to do. I’m going to bet on myself 100 percent of the time. I’m just going to go out there and do my job and let everybody see why I came here, and then hopefully be changing into a multi-year contract. Obviously, I’m just ready, excited. I’m happy they gave me the opportunity, and I’m going to take advantage of it and run with it.” most of his four seasons in Denver, and he made 14 sacks. He should get more opportunities in Todd Bowles’ 3-4 defense in Tampa.“I just love the scheme a lot,” Barrett said. “Coach Bowles, I talked to him a couple of times. He showed me some of the stuff that he’s been working on and drawing up when I did the visit. It’s going to be a lot of fun this year.”
