We've agreed to terms on a one-year deal with @Phillips_17
— Los Angeles Chargers (@Chargers) March 14, 2018
The former Texas Longhorn is coming off of his most productive professional season.
As a hybrid safety under defensive coordinator Gus Bradley, in which Phillips also saw time as an additional linebacker, Phillips recorded career-high efforts across the board with 63 tackles, 5 passes defended and 2 interceptions in 15 games.
A former undrafted free agent, Phillips spent much of his first two seasons on the Chargers practice squad. In 2016, however, he emerged as a key contributor, totaling 40 tackles with 3 passes defended and 1 interception in 14 games, including six starts.
After topping that effort last season, Phillips has earned himself at least one more season with the Chargers.
