Philon will get $5 million guaranteed and his contract can max out at $12 million with incentives. The Arkansas product appeared in all 32 regular-season games for the Chargers the past two seasons (making 13 starts in 2018) and racked up 64 tackles and 8.5 sacks along the way. Now with the Cardinals, Philon will likely slot in as a starter alongside fellow defensive end Robert Nkemdiche and nose tackle Corey Peters.
Philon recorded five tackles (three solo), including 1.5 sacks, and forced a fumble in Saturday's loss to Baltimore.
Philon had an impressive outing Sunday, tying his season high in tackles and setting a season high in sacks. The third-year defender has 32 tackles (19 solo), including four sacks, through 15 games this season.
Philon (ankle) is active for Sunday's game at Oakland.
Philon sustained the ankle injury last week against the Seahawks but won't be forced to miss any games. The 24-year-old should have his usual role as a rotational defensive tackle against the Raiders.
Philon (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Raiders.
Philon suffered the ankle injury last week against the Seahawks and started the week as a non-participant, but he practiced on a limited basis Thursday and Friday. Justin Jones would see heavier snaps as a reserve defensive tackle if Philon is unable to suit up Sunday.
Philon is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Seahawks due to an ankle injury.
Philon was carted off the field after sustaining an ankle injury, and is questionable to return to Sunday's tilt. As long as Philon remains sidelined, Justin Jones and Isaac Rochell could receive increased defensive opportunities.
