Kenny Phillips grateful Saints gave him another shot

It has been a wild ride for Kenny Phillips the last week. After making the 53-man roster, he was cut a day later when the team picked up two players on waivers.

However, when Rafael Bush suffered as season-ending pectoral injury, Phillips got the call from the Saints and he re-signed with the team earlier this week. He practiced with the team on Wednesday, and he could start on Sunday when the Saints take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

"When they spoke to me, they told me they thought I did everything they wanted to see,” Phillips said to Evan Woodberry of “So it was a little confusing when I didn't make the team," Phillips said. "But I'm just happy I'm back."

Phillips originally signed with the team in January, and by the way he was working with Jairus Byrd, there were thoughts that he was going to make the team. But the Saints decided to go another direction and keep Jamarca Sanford as the backup for both safety positions.

Phillips has learned a lot in the last 10 days. He said there are a lot of great players who will never get a chance to comeback once they are cut. So he’s grateful he got the call back.
