Nice to have him on our side... might up the ante a bit from SD (if they're decent this year).
From a value perspective, I'd rather have Philips get 9 sacks in a third down role with Ayers on 1st and 2nd... than have Doom get 12 and be a liability against the run.
Three million vs nine million? Give me Philips any day. In fact I think we're better off now, even without taking price into account.
