The veteran safety market just got a little deeper.
The Eagles have cut Kenny Phillips, a league source told PFT’s Mike Florio on Sunday.
The 26-year-old Phillips signed with Philadelphia after spending five seasons with the Giants. Phillips has dealt with a quadriceps injury during the summer.
Phillips could hold appeal to clubs looking to bolster their ranks at safety. It should be noted that the Giants, his old club, lost starting safety Stevie Brown to an ACL tear on Saturday.
When healthy, Phillips was a key contributor in the Giants’ secondary for much of his stint in New York. However, he has missed time with injuries to both knees in his NFL career.
A first-round pick in 2008. Phillips has recorded 263 regular-season tackles and intercepted eight passes as a pro.
