Report: Steelers, Patriots, Saints wanted Jordan
Phillips – (Yardbarker)

Defensive tackle Jordan Phillips is the newest member
of the Bills, but a trio of contenders also tried to land him. The
Steelers, Patriots, and Saints all put waiver claims in on the
former Dolphin, as Field Yates of ESPN.com tweets, but the Bills
won out thanks to their higher waiver priority. The former
second-round pick has struggled with consistency over the last four
years, but several teams still believe in his potential. The
Patriots’ claim shows that they are less-than-thrilled about their
current group of DTs, which consists of Lawrence Guy, Malcom Brown,
Danny Shelton, and Adam Butler. Butler likely would have been the
odd man out, and Phillips might have had an opportunity to
eventually leapfrog Shelton and Brown in the pecking order. Through
four weeks, Guy has 19 total tackles and is rated as Pro Football
Focus’ No. 4 overall ranked defensive tackle, but the other DTs
have something to be desired.Phillips started most of his games in
2016 and 2017, but was relegated to a reserve role this year
