Listening to JDR he says RDE is Ayers. He said he sees Phillips as a flex much like how they play Miller. Moving all around, hand in the ground, etc. Sounded ALMOST like they might be trying to create a truley dynamic flex 4-3, that will look more like a 3-4 a good amount of time.
That doesn't mean it will be the case, or that it is even feasible to do so, but it came across like he is looking to mirror the opposite side to play like Vaugn.
