Phillips could wear a Saints uniform this year, said ESPN NFC South reporter Pat "Vacation Man" Yasinskas

With free agency less than a day away, Joe is sweating out the fate of safety Jermaine Phillips.

Heck, Phillips turns 30 in a few weeks, which probably signals the end of his Bucs career.

For Joe’s money, Phillips is the leader of the secondary and played at a Pro Bowl level for most of 2008, forearm injuries aside.

Lost in the drama of Black Wednesday, Pat “Vacation Man” Yasinskas, who covers the NFC South for, told 1040AM host Nanci Donnellan that Phillips is highly coveted by the New Orleans Saints and the Bucs may not shell out the cash to sign him.

“The Bucs wants him, but that’s a tough one. …The Saints are desperate for safety help,” Yasinskas said.

Joe’s lessening faith in The Dream regime will take a nose dive if Phillips doesn’t return. He is one of the Bucs core young players who came through the system, from a fifth-round pick to a standout performer.

    I think he would fit in the Saints defense perfectly, Seeing that he has only had 2 full seasons out of 7 seasons.

    If the Glazers can get him at the NFL minimum they will sign him. Everyone wondering about the Bucs plan. I’ll tell you what it is. It’s how much money they can cram into their safe. Wait and see. Have they ever signed a big name player since they became owners?

    Antonio Bryant just signed for $10 million. Stop being so nervous everyone

  4. JK Says:

    Bryant didn’t sign. He was franchised. A BIG difference!

    Makes no difference in this argument. Same cash for the Glazers.
