Jordan Phillips has agreed to terms on a four year deal as first reported by The Miami Herald. The exact figures of the deal have not been made available yet.
Phillips, a 6'5", 329 pound defensive tackle out of the University of Oklahoma, was drafted in the second round and will likely push for a starting job on the defensive line and will provide excellent depth should incumbent Earl Mitchell retain his spot.
The cause of Phillips being drafted in the second round rather than the first had nothing to do with his talent or any sort of injury, but what has come into question is his passion for the game of football, as many evaluators have said that he seems to take plays off every once in a while.
Phillips is a gigantic man and his presence on the defensive line - when paired with Suh - is enough to make any running back sweat. If he gives his all on every snap, there's very little doubt that he will become a very dangerous defensive tackle.
The situation is very fluid in Davie as the Dolphins' front office has gone into over-drive getting deals done for 5 out of their 7 draft picks. This sudden rush is likely attributed to rookie mini camp starting on Friday. We will be sure to keep you updated as more details of the recent deals become available.
