With guys like Elvis Dumervil, Dwight Freeney, John Abraham and Osi Umenyiora still available, Phillips is likely to remain on the back burner until things get sorted out with some of these other players.
This is obviously an unfortunate situation for Phillips as he’s unlikely to secure even a modest contract after these four find new homes.
The Broncos, Buccaneers, Falcons, Lions, Patriots, Ravens, Saints and Titans could all use some help at either defensive end or outside linebacker.
We have him listed as the No. 43 player in our recently updated Top 50 Free Agents list.
