The Buffalo Bills brought back defensive tackle Jordan Phillips last offseason after he was released by the Arizona Cardinals. He was in the final year of a three-year contract he signed in 2020 after a breakout season with the Bills the season prior when he had 9.5 sacks.
Phillips began the year fast with the Buffalo Bills with 1.5 sacks and three QB hits against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 1 but injuries became an issue and it seemed like it was something he had to manage over the course of the entire season and missed five games total. He even announced after the Bills’ loss to the Bengals that he had been playing with a torn rotator cuff, according to The Athletic’s Joe Buscaglia.
The Buffalo Bills always want depth along their defensive line with how frequently they rotate players at the position. Jordan Phillips is a player who has shown he can be productive in this defense and likely won’t command a big contract. This seems like an easy deal that should be able to get done.
