    Honestly some of the comments reminds me of Jason Taylor's contract year...blah blah blah only had 16 sacks in his first 3 years, didn't start gaming until his contract year... Quite a few people wanted to let him walk because 14.5 sacks in his contract year was just a fluke. I have to give credit to those people that said it takes time to learn the position...It takes time for the kid to grow up...

    This is entirely possible, and I hope you’re right.

    For what it’s worth, I’m really pulling for Vincent Taylor.

    You do realize if he leaves we wouldn't get that comp pick til 2020 and that's only if we don't add any FA's to offset him leaving. Remember, comp picks aren't guaranteed.

    Phillips is the type of player who will flash but then disappear for long stretches. He will NEVER be a dominant player in the NFL.

    Of all the question marks on this team, this is the one that actually feels like it's worth worrying about. Yeah it's a contract year, but we're talking about a player who just hasn't consistently shown the want-to. And doesn't seem like he's trending that way either.

    And if Phillips doesn't take a big step in the right direction, this D-line is going to be in trouble.

    Contract year. I could give a **** if we resign the guy or not. He's got the rest of his NFL future riding on this one season. I just want to see a guy that can step up his game in the absence of Suh for just this one season. We are so weak at the DT positions, that if he steps up his game, it's good for the team and for his potential future payday. It's asking a lot I know, based on what we've seen.

    Showed up at OTAs weighing 341 pounds? Obviously wasn't in good physical shape.

    That is a fair point, but I feel like Gase and Grier are done with high priced FA signings. I also think Ross gets rid of TBUM after this season after the SUH deal didnt pan out and TBUM was the main guy for that.

    Plus, If he has a monster year then that is good for us anyway just for defensive performance. BUT I am in no way wanting this guy long term, espcially with the DTs in next years draft.

    I imagine we'll be drafting DT again next year. I think he's got potential, but I'm not in love with Phillips.

    He always looks like he's considering a nap.

    Vince was a brick ****house and could absolutely hold his own in the weight room but by looking at him you'd think he's just a fat guy.
