Saints signed S Kenny Phillips.

Phillips spent all summer with the Saints before being released at final cuts. Bringing in Phillips could mean Rafael Bush's chest injury will keep him out a while.

Saints waived S Kenny Phillips.

The former Giants first-round pick was signed to a reserve/future deal all the way back in January, and had appeared to make the Saints' 53 as recently as Sunday morning. The Saints went waiver-wire diving, however, and Phillips was deemed expendable. Phillips turns 29 this November.

Saints signed S Kenny Phillips to a reserve/future contract.

The 31st overall pick in the 2008 draft, Phillips' career has been derailed by myriad knee problems. He spent 2014 out of football after the Eagles cut Phillips toward the end of 2013 training camp. Now 28 years old, Phillips will spend the offseason trying to show the Saints he's worth a 2015 roster spot.

Eagles released S Kenny Phillips.

Phillips was the 31st overall pick in the 2008 draft. While he's flashed All Pro-type ability in the rare instances he's been healthy, Phillips has not been the latter much over the past several seasons. Another team will likely give Phillips one more shot, but he's running out of time despite only being 26.

The Philadelphia Inquirer believes the Eagles could cut FS Kenny Phillips by Tuesday.

Tuesday is the day teams have to trim their rosters down to 75. Phillips has missed the last two preseason games with a quadriceps injury. The Eagles are desperate for help next to SS Pat Chung, but it looks like rookie Earl Wolff is the favorite to start at free safety. Phillips signed a one-year, $2 million deal this offseason in an effort to rehab his value. It's not working.
Sun, Aug 25, 2013 10:23:00 AM

Eagles S Kenny Phillips "isn't moving very well" in training camp practices.

Pat Chung has already locked up starting strong safety duties, and Nate Allen is the favorite at free. Phillips needs to worry about his roster spot. He can't shake his troublesome knee woes and his contract has no guaranteed money.
Thu, Aug 8, 2013 06:00:00 PM

Eagles FS Kenny Phillips (knee) is a full participant in minicamp.

Phillips missed a good chunk of OTAs, but is now back to participating in team drills. Provided he avoids a setback — which is not a given — he'll be 100 percent for training camp, where he'll have to hold off Nate Allen for a starting job.
Tue, Jun 4, 2013 01:49:00 PM

Eagles FS Kenny Phillips (knee) is expected to resume practice at the team's minicamp in June.

Annually injury prone, Phillips has been sitting out of OTAs as a precaution. He's battled lingering knee issues since entering the league. Phillips is not assured of a starting role as he competes with incumbent FS Nate Allen.
Thu, May 30, 2013 04:26:00 PM

Eagles FS Kenny Phillips says his Tuesday absence from practice was precautionary and "nothing serious."

Phillips is taking it easy on his left knee, which underwent microfracture surgery in 2009. Phillips' litany of knee injuries since entering the league remains concerning, both for his short- and long-term outlooks.
Tue, May 28, 2013 04:59:00 PM

Eagles FS Kenny Phillips missed Tuesday's OTA practice with an undisclosed injury to his surgically repaired knee.

Coach Chip Kelly wouldn't go into detail, only saying Phillips was "out with (a) knee injury." It's possible he suffered a setback, but until the Eagles elaborate we're inclined to believe it's due to general soreness. Phillips has battled knee injuries since entering the league.
Tue, May 28, 2013 02:00:00 PM

Eagles agreed to terms with FS Kenny Phillips, formerly of the Giants, on a one-year contract.

Phillips stays in the division on a one-year deal as he tries to rehab value after battling knee issues for the past few seasons. A fine cover safety, the Eagles will pair Phillips with fellow new acquisition SS Pat Chung on their back end. There were whispers the Giants were thinking about franchise tagging Phillips last week.
Thu, Mar 14, 2013 04:12:00 PM

Free agent FS Kenny Phillips will test the open market.

The Giants and Phillips talked about a new contract last week, but the money "wasn't nearly enough" and his chances of re-signing before March 12 "appear gone." Phillips' preference is to re-sign with the Giants. Once he hits the market, Phillips' chances of being back with New York take a major hit.
Thu, Mar 7, 2013 01:21:00 PM

The Giants are "continuing to see" if they can work out a new contract with free agent FS Kenny Phillips.

Per reporter Jason La Canfora, Phillips is unlikely to be franchise tagged ahead of Monday's deadline. With Antrel Rolle and Stevie Brown to fall back on at safety, the Giants will likely only bring Phillips back at their price.
Fri, Mar 1, 2013 01:44:00 PM

The Charlotte Observer mentions impending free agent FS Kenny Phillips as an option for the Panthers.

Phillips almost certainly won't be back with the Giants, who appear set at safety with Antrel Rolle and Stevie Brown. New Panthers GM Dave Gettleman also knows Phillips from his days with the Giants. Phillips has battled knee issues since entering the NFL, but he would be quite an upgrade on Haruki Nakamura.
