The Detroit Lions should claim former Dolphins DT Jordan Phillips On Tuesday Danny Amendola Jersey , the Detroit Lions made an odd transaction. They waived special teams player Dee Virgin. While the move itself wasn’t all that surprising, the fact that Detroit had no corresponding move, leaving them with an empty roster spot, is somewhat strange. Typically, that’s a sign the team has an addition in mind, and we’ll likely hear of it on Wednesday.I, too, have a transaction in mind for the Lions, and it has to do with a move the Miami Dolphins made on Tuesday. They added center Wesley Johnson (remember him?) and promoted defensive end Cameron Malveaux from the practice squad. To make room for the two, they placed center Daniel Kilgore on injured reserve, but more relevant to our interests, they waived former second-round pick, defensive tackle Jordan Phillips. The Lions should absolutely put in a claim for Phillips, and here’s why.The Lions’ interior defensive line is really badDetroit was hoping to get serious contributions out of two key free agent pickups: Sylvester Williams and Ricky Jean Francois. The former had all the promise of a nose tackle, while the latter had valuable knowledge and experience of the Matt Patricia scheme. Francois has already lost the starting job to A’Shawn Robinson Trey Flowers Jersey , who entered the season a healthy scratch. Williams has just five tackles in four starts, and even though his job is more to fill space, he hasn’t been doing that either. His PFF grade of 61.9 is good for 77th among interior defenders. Phillips fits the physical profile of Detroit’s needsAt 6-foot-6, 341 pounds, Phillips is exactly the kind of player the Lions could use as a rotational nose tackle when Williams is ineffective, injured, tired or a combination of all three. Phillips is fairly gifted athletically (6.53 RAS), and his incredibly tall frame makes him a tough man to push around in the run game.His NFL Draft profile reads as exactly someone this Lions defense desperately needs. From Lance Zierlein:So not only does he physically fit what the Lions need, but he excels at exactly what the Lions schematically need out of a nose.The downsidesAt this point in the season, you aren’t going to pluck a player from waivers or free agency that will drastically alter the course of your season, unless said player comes with some serious baggage (hi, Dez Bryant). So, yeah, Phillips isn’t going to be the best player on the defense suddenly. Phillips has been publicly called out for his inconsistent play before, accused of dogging certain plays when tired.“The bottom line is Jordan has got to play better overall Damon Harrison Jersey ,” Vance Joseph, his defensive coordinator, said back in 2016. “Out of 35 plays, Jordan is playing a solid 25 plays very solidly. He’s having four or five plays where it’s not very good.”It went on like that for a couple years in Miami, leading Jordan, once a starter alongside Ndamukong Suh, to be delegated to a rotational role. Phillips hasn’t started a game this year and has played in just 124 total defensive snaps. He wasn’t very happy about that: And his first reaction upon getting cut by the Dolphins? Pure bliss:For many, that’s a clear red flag in terms of character. Someone who doesn’t defer to the coaches may struggle when adversity inevitably hits. Desperate times call for desperate measuresAdmittedly, that’s a lot of downsides for someone I’m banging the table for, but the Lions are desperate. It’s doesn’t help that Phillips may not be well-versed in Patricia’s system and is currently the third lowest graded interior defender according to Pro Football Focus, but this team is bleeding out, allowing nearly 160 rushing yards per game and 5.3 yards per carry. Last year, the worst run defense allowed just 4.9 YPC. Phillips had very clearly mentally checked out in Miami, and we’ve already seen some new additions make an immediate impact for Detroit. Eli Harold, added just before the season Ricky Jean Francois Jersey , has three sacks already. Romeo Okwara, added during Week 1, has been the leading snap-getter on the defensive line over the past two weeks, garnering over 80 percent of snaps in games against the Patriots and Cowboys. “Change of scenery” is an often-used excuse to drum up hope that a busted player could succeed under a new team, and that could very well be what I’m pitching here. But there’s not much room for this Lions defense to fall, and a player like Phillips comes cheap (still on his rookie contract) and without much risk. Put Phillips in a rotational role to begin in the hopes that his limited role will minimize the plays he takes off. If he shows promise and understands the scheme, there’s no reason why he couldn’t displace Sylvester Williams as an eventual starter or at least share the role equally come November. Getting to know the Lions new receiver"Early on in the offseason I put out a piece about how the Lions desperately needed a receiver and how it should be one of the Lions biggest needs during the offseason. In some ways the Lions went out and took care of that need. They signed Danny Amendola and then drafted tight end T.J. Hockenson, who undoubtedly be a factor in the passing game. Still, I had hopes the Lions would draft D.que. Metcalf after he slipped out of the first round or South Carolina’s Deebo Samuel. Instead the Lions waited until the sixth round to take Old Dominion’s Travis Fulgham. At 6-foot-2, 215 pounds, Fulgham is another big body receiver that the Lions always seem to find themselves with. I’m not sure what role he can fill here outside of red zone. That’s if he sees the field much at all early in his career. At the moment he’s buried behind Amendola, Kenny Golladay, Marvin Jones and possibly even Tommylee Lewis. With his role unknown at this time, we should take some time to get to get to know Fulgham, and maybe we can begin to see what he could be. We reached out to Ed Miller of the Virginian-Pilot to see what he saw in Fulgham during his time at Old Dominion. Here’s what he had to say. POD: What are your overall thoughts on Fulgham’s time at Old Dominion?TVP: “Fulgham was a late bloomer who came to ODU as a walk-on. As the son of parents who worked overseas Levine Toilolo Jersey , he grew up around the world and didn’t really play football seriously until his junior year of high school. As you might expect, it took him a while to adapt to the college game. He’d always shown flashes of potential but could be inconsistent and had a tendency to disappear before putting it all together last season. It was kind of a perfect storm as ODU had a QB who excelled at throwing “fade” routes that played to the size and strength of Fulgham and his running mate, Jonathan Duhart, another rangy, physical receiver who was signed by Detroit as an UDFA.”POD: What are his strengths?TVP: “He’s long and rangy, is a good leaper and has excellent body control. He runs tight routes, has good hands and has learned to shield defenders with that big frame. He’ll go up and get the ball and can make the occasional spectacular catch. He’s cerebral and a high-character guy.”POD: What are his weaknesses?TVP: “He’s not a burner. He ran in the 4.6 range and doesn’t always get great separation. Doesn’t get a lot of yards after catch. Will be curious to see how he fares against NFL corners, as he played at G5 level.” POD: With Marvin Jones, Kenny Golladay and Danny Amendola on the Lions roster, how does Fulgham stand out? What kind of an impact can he make in the NFL?TVP: “I can’t say I’m familiar with the Lions receiving corps. I think he’s got a chance to make the team, but will probably have to bring added value on special teams. He’s still a little raw but is a smart player who responds well to coaching and seemed to get mentally tougher and more resilient as his career progressed.”
