The Bills claimed defensive tackle Jordan Phillips off waivers from the Dolphins, the team announced Wednesday. They cut defensive tackle Robert Thomas to make room.
Miami made Phillips a second-round pick in 2015. He started 26 games in his first three seasons with the Dolphins but had become a rotational defensive tackle this season.
Phillips made 63 tackles, 5.5 sacks and an interception in his career with the Dolphins.
Thomas played two games with the Bills this season. He also has spent time with Washington, Miami, Carolina, Seattle and the Giants.
