Saints' John Phillips: Re-signing with Saints
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Phillips will re-sign with the team for the 2017 season, Nick Underhill of The Advocate reports.

Phillips was claimed by the Saints in November of 2016 after being released by the Broncos. In eight appearances with the team he recorded five catches for 32 yards. He'll look to build on that performance as he continues in his role as a depth tight end in 2017.

Saints' John Phillips: Claimed by Saints Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Phillips was claimed off waivers by the Saints on Monday, Mike Triplett of ESPN reports.

Phillips was waived by the Broncos on Friday, but was not there long before being claimed by the Saints. Along with the Broncos, the veteran has played for the Cowboys and Chargers during his career. He will have a chance for revenge in his first game with the Saints, as they face the Broncos on Sunday. However, Phillips is not expected to do much more than add depth at tight end.

John Phillips: Released by Broncos
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Phillips has been released by the Broncos, Nicki Jhabvala of The Denver Post reports.

Phillips started the first three games of the season at tight end with Virgil Green and Jeff Heuerman recovering from injuries. However, those two are now healthy, and the Broncos acquired tight end A.J. Derby form the Patriots prior to Week 8. Phillips likely wouldn't have seen much playing time for the rest of the year even if he was kept on the active roster.

Broncos' John Phillips: Held catchless against Tampa Bay
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Phillips was not targeted in Sunday's win over the Buccaneers.

A week after getting involved in the action with a score, Phillips went catchless for the third time in four games this season. Of more concern, he played just one more offensive snap than youngster Jeff Heuerman, 29 to 28. Expect the veteran's role to continue to be reduced as Heuerman finds his footing and starter Virgil Green nears his return from a calf injury.

Broncos' John Phillips: Scores on the Bengals
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Phillips caught two of four passes for nine yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over Cincinnati.

Phillips got the start in place of the injured Virgil Green and responded with his first catches of the season. Whether he gets many more remains to be seen. Phillips didn't receive so much as a target while in reserve duty during Weeks 1 and 2 and Green shouldn't be out for much longer. The young Jeff Heuerman could also snatch away any targets that would otherwise go to Phillips as he flashed some big-play potential in his first career action on Sunday.
