Bio

A shutdown corner in the FCS ranks, Lindsey brings good speed to his bid to crack Bengals roster, and he has the size to match up with NFL receivers … Had back-to-back seasons of six INTs as a sophomore and junior for Southern Illinois, and his drop to one INT as a senior was seen as largely the result of opponents avoiding his side of the field … Became second player in program history with five or more INTs in consecutive seasons, joining Terry Taylor, who was a first-round Seattle draft choice in 1984 … Third player in school history to earn first-team All-America honors in consecutive seasons.
