Buccaneers Safety Jermaine Phillips Unsure Of Future

Tampa Bay received a glimpse of what life without S Jeramine Phillips could be like and the Buccaneers might not be happy with what they saw.
Phillips initially broke his left arm against Dallas and missed three games. He returned three weeks later only to break his right arm, the same one Phillips fractured in 2004, against Atlanta.
Without Phillips at 100 percent down the stretch, Tampa Bay’s defense gave up 123 points in its last four games (30.7 points per game) and allowed four individual rushers to gain over 100 yards.
“I think they have to look at personnel and see what they need,” Phillips said. “We have Tanard [Jackson] and Sabby [Piscitelli] who are quality players. Both are very good and going to be great in the future, so I don’t know if safety will be a need for them right now, but if they offer me and bring me back, I would love to be here.”
