Saints sign ex-Giants safety Kenny Phillips

The Saints have added a former first-round pick to their roster.

The club has signed Kenny Phillips, a 43-game starter in five seasons with the Giants, to a reserve/future contract, per the NFL’s Wednesday personnel notice.

The No. 31 overall pick in 2008, the 28-year-old Phillips recorded 263 tackles and eight interceptions in 53 games over five seasons in New York. He signed with the Eagles in March 2013, but he was released a little more than five months later. He has not appeared in an NFL regular-season game since 2012.

Phillips has dealt with injuries to both knees in his pro career and had microfracture surgery on his left knee in 2009.
