New Orleans had some issues in their secondary during their loss to the Cardinals on Sunday, and Phillips sent enough time with them this summer that he should be able to step in and be comfortable in their defensive scheme.
Phillips, 28, is a former first-round pick of the Giants back in 2008. He spent five years with the Giants before he departed for a free agent contract with the Eagles.
New Orleans elected to give him another shot back in December of last year when they signed him to a future/reserve contract. However, Phillips was among their recent roster cuts.
Phillips hasn’t appeared in an NFL game since the 2012 season.
