Phillips, 25, originally signed on with the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent out of Tarleton State back in May of last year. He was waived with an injury designation before eventually joining the Jets.
Phillips was, unfortunately, unable to make the Jets’ 53-man roster coming out of the preseason, but he later signed on to the Redskins’ practice squad a week into the start of the 2015 season.
He’s been on and off of the Redskins’ active roster this season.
In 2016, Phillips has appeared in three games for the Redskins and recorded seven total tackles.
Trail, 25, originally signed on with the Texans as an undrafted free agent out of Norfolk State back in May of last year. He wound up being waived coming out of the preseason with an injury designation and was later cut with an injury settlement.
The Redskins signed him to their practice squad midseason and later brought him back on a future/reserve contract. After once again being a final roster cut, the Redskins signed him to their practice squad. The Rams signed him to a contract back in September but waived him to make room for DB Isaiah Johnson.
Trail has yet to appear in an NFL game.
