Because OLB Victor Butler is effectively a similar player but years younger. Phillips didn't have a great season last year against the run and is a bit light for a traditional DE.

But I think he fits better in our D considering we don't have a set 4-3 front and he's used to playing 3-4/4-3 and against he AFC West.

He's also just 31 so he's got a couple of good years left in him so I would prefer him if something can't be worked out with Doom.
