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).
