Colts released OLB Shaun Phillips.
Indianapolis gave Phillips a try after the Titans dumped him midseason, but all he could muster was seven tackles in eight games including the playoffs. Phillips' sack total dropped from ten in 2013 to just two in 2014. With Phillips turning 34 in a couple months, it's fair to wonder how much he has left in the tank. Mon, Feb 16, 2015 02:38:00 PM

Colts claimed OLB Shaun Phillips off waivers from the Titans.

The Colts cut OLB Victor Butler to make room. Phillips, 33, has been one of the least-effective pass rushers in the league this season, amassing just two sacks, three QB hits, and 10 hurries across 363 snaps. Indianapolis is tied for ninth in the league with 28 sacks, but the Colts aren't getting consistent pressure. Phillips will team with Bjoern Werner and Erik Walden at 3-4 outside 'backer.

Titans waived OLB Shaun Phillips.

Signed to a two-year deal that included $2.5M guaranteed in March, the 33-year-old Phillips busted badly. He has two sacks and three quarterback hits on 363 snaps, and the Titans are cutting their losses even though fellow OLB Kamerion Wimbley is fighting a hamstring issue. There could be more to this story.

Titans agreed to terms with OLB Shaun Phillips, formerly of the Broncos, on a two-year, $6 million contract.

The deal includes $2.5 million guaranteed. Phillips turns 33 in May, but it's a potential bargain for the Titans, who will slide Phillips in at outside linebacker in DC Ray Horton's hybrid 3-4 defense. Phillips was far-from elite on a per-snap basis last season, but still managed 10 sacks after notching 9.5 in 2012. He'll be a productive presence on the edge in Tennessee.

Free agent OLB Shaun Phillips is visiting the Titans on Thursday.

Phillips was connected to the Titans before the start of free agency, but this is his first-known visit. Coming off a 10-sack season, Phillips would be a natural fit for DC Ray Horton's hybrid 3-4.

The Nashville Tennessean reports free agent OLB Shaun Phillips is "on the Titans' radar."

This is in addition to free agent ILB Jameel McClain and ILB Karlos Dansby. The Titans could also soon jump into the bidding for free agent OLB LaMarr Woodley, who has years' worth of ties to new Tennessee DC Ray Horton. The Titans are transitioning from a 4-3 to 3-4 defense in 2014, and need players who fit the new scheme. Phillips came up as a 3-4 outside linebacker in San Diego.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Broncos "fully expect" to re-sign free agent DE/OLB Shaun Phillips.

Phillips turns 33 in May, so he's not going to break the bank. Despite 19.5 sacks and four forced fumbles over the past two seasons, Phillips has been an inefficient pass rusher in terms of hurries and hits. The Broncos signed him to a one-year, $1 million deal last offseason with $2 million more in incentives.

According to Pro Football Focus, Broncos DE/OLB Shaun Phillips only disrupted the quarterback on 47-of-443 pass rush snaps during the regular season.

That's a sack, hit, or hurry on just 10.6 percent of his pass rush attempts. Despite posting ten sacks, Phillips' disruption rate ranks him No. 62 among all players who rushed the quarterback at least 250 times. He'll have his hands full on Sunday against the elusive Russell Wilson.

Broncos DE/OLB Shaun Phillips (back) was added to the team's Week 3 injury report and is listed as questionable.

The Broncos take on the Raiders on Monday night. Phillips has been filling in for suspended Von Miller, and he has 2.5 sacks and one forced fumble after two games. Malik Jackson would likely see more snaps if Phillips sits out.

Shaun Phillips is Von Miller's direct backup at strong-side linebacker.

Miller is currently appealing a four-game ban for amphetamines and marijuana. Assuming the appeal is denied, the Broncos are going to have to get creative with Phillips. On the decline at age 32, he has no shot of coming close to replicating Miller's dominance. Still, the extra opportunities will make Phillips a slightly interesting IDP flier in September.

Shaun Phillips says he accepted less money to play for the Broncos.

"That's why I came here, to be in this situation, to be with a team that is right there in the mix," Phillips said. "I want a chance at the whole thing." Ticketed for a backup role at both outside linebacker and defensive end, Phillips is playing for a bargain-basement $1 million, with no guaranteed money. If he truly turned down more money, we doubt it was a lot. Phillips can earn another $2 million through sack-based incentives, though only $400,000 of it is considered achievable.

Coach John Fox expects newly signed Shaun Phillips to be a backup at both SAM linebacker and defensive end.

The Ravens decided to take a flier on Phillips rather than Dwight Freeney or John Abraham. He's certainly cheaper, as they only gave him a $1 million base salary with no signing bonus on his one-year deal. Phillips will rush the passer from all over the formation, mostly out of the Broncos' nickel package. He had 9.5 sacks while operating as a starting outside linebacker for the Chargers last season.

Broncos signed pass rusher Shaun Phillips, formerly of the Chargers, to a one-year contract.

Phillips, 32 next month, was one of the better free agents left on the open market. San Diego wanted him back, but there appears to be a better opportunity with the division rival Broncos. Phillips has 69.5 career sacks, and he'll replace some of the production lost by Elvis Dumervil's departure. This might rule out a potential Dwight Freeney signing for the Broncos.
Sat, Apr 27, 2013 03:19:00 PM

PFT reports free agent OLB Shaun Phillips is "quietly generating interest."

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Phillips remains "on the radar screen" of teams on the prowl for pass-rushing help. Some of the more high-profile clubs currently searching for pass-rushing heat are Denver, Atlanta and Baltimore. ESPN's Adam Schefter previously mentioned Phillips could be a possibility for Denver. Phillips had 9.5 sacks in 16 starts last season.
Fri, Mar 22, 2013 08:22:00 AM

ESPN's Adam Schefter mentions free agent OLB Shaun Phillips as a possibility for the Broncos if they cut Elvis Dumervil.

Phillips is coming off a 9.5-sack season. The Broncos could sign both him and Dwight Freeney if Dumervil were cut, although Dumervil's sudden openness to a pay reduction suggests he'll stay in Denver. We should know more tomorrow.
