Phillips (ankle) agreed Wednesday to re-sign with the Chargers on a one-year contract, Eric D. Williams of reports.

A seldom-used safety throughout his first three seasons in the NFL, Phillips became a more integral part of the team's defensive plans as the 2017 campaign progressed, seeing at least 40 snaps in eight of the final 10 games. Doubling as a box safety in coordinator Gus Bradley's defensive scheme, the 25-year-old easily set a career high in tackles (63) and should reprise a similar role in 2018.
