In 2018, Lindsay earned Pro Bowl honors as a rookie for the Broncos. The undrafted tailback out of Colorado had 1,037 rushing yards, 241 receiving yards and 10 total touchdowns that season.

Lindsay has struggled the past few seasons to recapture the magic he had in the Mile High City. In the past two seasons, he has played for the Colts, Dolphins and Texans.

Funk, meanwhile, was recently cut by the Saints. Before his brief stint in New Orleans, he was on the Rams.

Although he hasn't really received much playing time in the NFL, Funk does have some untapped potential. While at Maryland, he was an All-Big Ten performer.

Funk finished his college career with 1,102 scrimmage yards and 13 touchdowns. Perhaps he'll get a chance to showcase his skillset in Indianapolis later this year.
