The Tennessee Titans are releasing Shaun Phillips today per Jim Wyatt:
He got here and pretty much just disappeared. He didn't play much in the preseason, but there was talk that the team was just resting him because he was a veteran. Then the regular season came around and he still didn't play very much. There were honestly times that I forgot he was even on the roster. He did manage 2 sacks.
Ray Horton knows a whole lot more about defense than I do, but it seems pretty easy to me to find a way to get Phillips on the field. He is going to contribute more from that position than Derrick Morgan and/or Kamerion Wimbley on passing downs. Of course, the Titans have had teams run all over them this season, so there haven't been that many "passing downs."
Phillips signed a two-year deal with the team before the season. His base salary for next year was scheduled to be $2.5 million. The Titans will save that against the 2015 salary cap.
