Following a standout showing in the XFL, wide receiver Cam Phillips is drawing some interest from the NFL.

Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports that the Dolphins and Bengals have expressed interest in Phillips.

The 24-year-old Phillips led the XFL in receiving yards with 455 and had 31 receptions and nine touchdowns in five games. Thanks to his consistent performance with the Houston Roughnecks, the 6-foot, 202-pound wideout won a handful of Player of the Week awards.

The former undrafted free agent out of Virginia Tech had a previous NFL gig with the Bills in 2018. He spent much of that season on the practice squad but did have a 9-yard reception in two games. Phillips was waived by Buffalo at the end of the 2019 preseason.

A number of Phillips’ Roughnecks teammates have already signed NFL contracts. That grouping includes quarterback P.J. Walker, cornerback Deatrick Nichols (Saints), linebacker DeMarquis Gates (Vikings) and linebacker Edmond Robinson (Falcons).
