Phillips, who has played outside linebacker in the 3-4, likely will be converted to defensive end in the 4-3.
Often overlooked in the free-agent class of pass rushers, Phillips quietly had been gathering interest. His presence in Denver could mean there’s no longer interest in Dwight Freeney.
The problem with Freeney was that he’s interested in making too much money. And there’s no team currently interested in paying him that much.
