The Cardinals reportedly have zeroed in on their first free-agent signing, helping the defense.
After Monday's potential trade to help at wide receiver, multiple reports Tuesday morning have the Cardinals agreeing to a three-year deal with Bills defensive tackle Jordan Phillips. Phillips, 6-foot-6 and 325 pounds, had 9.5 sacks in 2019. It was by far the best season for the one-time second-round pick of the Dolphins.
Nothing can be official before Wednesday at 1 p.m. Arizona time, and signings are always pending a physical.
The Cardinals need to add along the defensive line. Corey Peters is in place and the Cardinals have 2019 third-round pick Zach Allen, but beyond that, there are a lot of players headed to free agency. The Cards could still end up signing more along the line in free agency, or even bringing back a couple of their own guys, such as Rodney Gunter.
