“I wanted to host a free camp here in my neighborhood because I feel like it’s important to give back to these kids,” said Lindsay.

“I was in their shoes. For a lot of these kids, they don’t have the money to go out and do these camps, so it’s big for these kids.”

He missed the final game of his rookie season after injuring his wrist.

“At the end of the day, I’m ready for whatever. It comes down to whatever they (the Broncos) feel is best for me. It’s a long season. I’d rather be able to go 16, 17, 18, 19, 20 games than go one game. It just depends on what coach Fangio and all them feel like I should be doing right now.”

“In my mind I’m ready. I’m 100%. That’s all I can say, once camp hits and y’all see me, y’all know what I’m going to be doing.”
