Denver Broncos rookie running back Phillip Lindsay figures if he’s going to set off on what he hopes is a career fit for the Hall of Fame, what better way to do it than sporting the number of a legendary Broncos runner currently in Canton.
I just got off the phone with Broncos rookie RB Phillip Lindsay who ask for my permission to rock the #30. Permission granted. Outstanding young man! It was time to dust off the ole three O. Good luck. #MakeItYours

Looks like he was pretty psyched about getting his blessing.
Appreciate you, TD! Honored and humbled to wear your number. I will do everything I can to make you proud! 🔷🔶🔷🔶 https://t.co/2vU7yfm8OL

Lindsay will be third on the running back depth chart behind Royce Freeman and Devontae Booker to start the season but he’ll likely get carries as the season progresses
Not sure if he’s fit to wear #30, but I guess we’ll find out soon enough.
