Buffs star Lindsay heads the Broncos' 2018 UDFA acquisitions

The Denver Broncos continue to look to the future after announcing their first wave of undrafted free agents led by local running back Phillip Lindsay.

Not content with their haul of 10 rookies through the NFL draft, the Broncos moved quickly to make former Denver South High School and Colorado Buffaloes scatback Lindsay their first signing as they expanded their rookie class to 18.

The Broncos regularly find success through the UDFA market, notably with Ring of Famer Rod Smith, who holds many Broncos franchise records from his 13 seasons as a wide receiver in Denver.

Chris Harris Jr (2011) heads the Broncos’ undrafted free agent acquisitions still on the roster, while Shaq Barrett (2014), Jordan Taylor and Zaire Anderson (2015), Kyle Peko (2016) and Jamal Carter, Marcus Rios, Jerrol Garcia-Williams, and Dymonte Thomas (2017) are currently on the Broncos roster, while CJ Anderson, who joined the team in 2013 was a cap casualty earlier this year.

The Broncos also have a number of other players who were undrafted, including starting quarterback Case Keenum, Todd Davis, and Darian Stewart.

While most of the attention will on be which of the drafted players will make the 53, Auburn outside linebacker Jeff Holland who, like Lindsay and Utah defensive tackle Lowell Lotulelei, was given a $15,000 signing bonus to join the Broncos, could be in the mix to make the final 53-man roster on September 1.
