    Well that's why he has incentives in his contract. If it was guaranteed he would have found a job before the draft and wouldn't have incentives tied in.
    he will be exactly what jim Leonard was for us last year

    this is how some fans are, they werent a big sack team but they had several defenders in the sack column. Phillips is strictly a backup and situational pass rusher.
    No doubt about that

    Considering he managed 9.5 sacks as the only pass rushing threat they have, I would disagree that he's not valuable.

    How? Phillips had one of the lowest sack percentages in the whole league. You guys that think Phillips is this unstoppable force are mistaken, he is in serious decline and at this point isn't much more than a backup. Florence and Phillips is a perfect comparison

    Well, he will make at least $5k a week while his on the team, right? Guys don't participate in TC and the pre season for free. I don't know if they get the league minimum for that time, but whatever it is, I'm sure it's not chump change.

    There's actually a $700.00 signing bonus in the NFL? Wow, that's surprising.

    Lowest sack percentage in the whole league? I find that very hard to believe. When a guy has 9.5 sacks. I mean c'mon, are you really saying Shaun Phillips had sooooo many more rushes than any other player in the league that came out with little sacks? This is why these football statistics websites are terrible. They actually make people think they know what they are talking about. Drayton Florence is a journeyman. Shaun Phillips has remained with one team his entire career.

    Drayton Florence was way over the hill and not even decent the previous year, that's a bad comparison.

    TBH I actually like him as a LT more than RT. He wasn't a huge road grading blocker in college but the guy has a surprisingly smooth kick slide. He can probably play both RT and LT but he's got good feet for a big man

    Really like Lerentee and would really like to see him make the 53 man squad. I'm excited about all of the competition we have across the board. We will see if I'm still excited after June 1st about it.

    Phillips is nowhere near garuanteed. We signed a vet last year that everyone said was garuanteed named drayton Florence then tony carter beat him out.

    We'll have to disagree on this one. We have no viable back up to Miller as a strongside linebacker and no proven pass rush specialist on the d-line. The only way Phillips doesn't make this team is if Beal or Jackson turn into all-pros over night.

    I dont think the Florence situation is really comparable to the Phillips signing. Florence was already showing signs of decline and was on his 4th team in 5 years. Phillips is coming off of a very productive year, has had consistent production, and hasn't shown any obvious signs of decline. Plus he signed a very reasonable contract. When you combine that with his veteran presence and schematic versatility I think the odds of Phillips making this roster are at about 95%.
