Jordan Phillips will be back with the Buffalo Bills for the 2019 season.

The team made the signing official on Tuesday, coming to terms on a one-year deal.

The news first came about on Monday when Phillips tweeted out:

The veteran defensive tackle was scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent on March 13.

The former second round pick (52nd overall) of the Miami Dolphins joined the Bills back in October after being released by the Dolphins for clashing with their coaching staff. In Buffalo, Phillips immediately brought a bunch of energy with him as a rotational player on the defensive line, playing in 10 games, collecting 19 tackles, including two for a loss, three pass breakups, and a fumble recovery. 

The 26-year-old stated from the start of the offseason that he’d like to come back to Buffalo, and Bills general manager Brandon Beane said last week at the NFL Combine that the team was interested in retaining him.

With Phillips re-signing with the Bills, that leaves the team with the following pending free agents:

 

Unrestricted:

OL - Ryan Groy
OT - Jordan Mills
OG - John Miller
RB/ST - Taiwan Jones
WR - Deonte Thompson     


Restricted:

TE - Logan Thomas


Exclusive Rights:

DE - Eddie Yarbrough
P - Matt Darr

 

ESPN reported Monday that the team has tendered Yarbrough, retaining his rights for 2019.
