The Arizona Cardinals have been, well, busy reshaping the roster.

From DeAndre Hopkins’ trade to transition tagging Kenyan Drake, they’ve made some key moves on the offensive side of the ball.

They have reportedly made some moves on defense as well.

Reports are coming out that Buffalo Bills defensive tackle Jordan Phillips has agreed to a three-year, $30 million contract with the team.

Phillips had a breakout year for the Bills in 2019 with 9.5 sacks and 13.5 tackles for loss. The Bills picked him off off waivers in 2018. 

While the 6-foot-6, 341-pound defensive lineman has played on the interior, The Athletic’s Scott Bordow is reporting that doesn’t necessarily mean the players like Auburn interior lineman Derrick Brown is out of play for the Bird Gang at pick #8 in this year’s NFL draft.

The Cardinals and Phillips can officially agree to terms on Wednesday when the new NFL league year starts.
