When free agent Shaun Phillips was weighing his NFL options, he wanted to push misery off the scale.

"At this point in my career, I've made some money. I've done that," Phillips said. "So it was really just down to do you go to the team that pays you the most money and you have a miserable season? Or do you go to a team that will take care of you and give you a chance to win?

"I've played nine years. I've been to the Pro Bowl, played in the AFC championship, but I haven't played in a Super Bowl. I want to play and have a chance to win a Super Bowl. You're not going to have that chance if you're the miserable guy in a miserable situation wondering when the season is going to be over. That's not what I'm about."

Phillips narrowed his choices to the Broncos and Houston Texans. Denver's Peyton Manning-powered offense and top-five defense broke the tie.

"There were only two fits in my mind, the Houston Texans and here," Phillips said. "I got offered a nice amount of money to go to Oakland, but that just wasn't for me at this stage. I could have gone other places, but this is the place. You want to be part of something like this."
