DT - BUF
The Cardinals released defensive lineman Jordan Phillips on Wednesday afternoon.
Phillips' release came just moments after the new league year began. He had a $13.3 million cap hit for 2022, though Arizona can recoup the majority of that if they designate his release as the post-June 1 variety. Phillips has spent seven years in Arizona since they drafted him in the second round of the 2015 draft. This past season, he appeared in nine games, racking up 22 tackles and three sacks. He should generate some interest on the open market as a veteran depth piece.
Ian Rapoport on Twitter is reporting that a source said that free agent Jordan Phillips is heading to the Cardinals, on a three-year deal.
Phillips had a career season in 2019 as he had 31 tackles and 9.5 sacks. His addition to the Cardinals, will definitely improve their 24th ranked defense.
Jordan Phillips had himself quite a day, recording three tackles, three sacks, three TFLs, and three QB hits in a 14-7 win over the Titans.
Phillips feasted on the Titans OL in this low scoring affair, and his play prevented Marcus Mariota and the Titans offense from heating up. The Bills defense will have another opportunity to rack up the sacks against Miami next week.
The Dolphins have waived DT Jordan Phillips.
Phillips was a second-round pick of the team in 2015. He had an issue on the sidelines this weekend, and the team had decided they have had enough. Despite being a high draft pick, Phillips hasn't produced much in the NFL.
The Miami Dolphins have signed DT Jordan Phillips to a four-year contract. The rookie from Oklahoma was the 52nd pick overall in the 2015 draft.
In college, Phillips was labeled as a player who took plays off. He joins a veteran group that includes Cameron Wake and Ndamukong Suh who hopefully can teach the young Jedi the ways of the Force, help him improve his on-field motor. If they are successful, Miami's line can quickly become one of the most dominant in the league.
