we basically got Phillips for what Elvis was offered after he was cut.
and we still are not on the hook for the big cap number Doom would have had before faxgate.
take a DE in the top 2 rounds next year to replace Phillips(if he doesn't work out or come back) and boom, we're still on the better end of it.
He also had 7 forced fumbles and was among the league leaders in QB pressures.
I like Phillips much better than Freeney because Phillips can actually do something besides just rush the passer. He is pretty much a complete LBer.
