Adrian Phillips and Trevor Williams
Adrian Phillips: Coming off a career year in which he went to the Pro Bowl, Phillips has come a long way as a player for the Chargers. Yet, he still seems to be a bit underappreciated. He re-signed with the team, but it was just another one-year contract.
An excellent special teams player, Phillips is also an emerging cog on an impressive defensive unit. The only thing about this deal that wasn’t good is it took longer than it should have to happen.
Trevor Williams: The re-signing of Williams pretty much signaled that the team would not bring back Verrett, a player Williams had to replace in the lineup on multiple occasions.
After a strong 2017 season, Williams was given the role as a starter in 2018 but injuries limited him to just nine games. He’s an upgrade over Michael Davis, who was forced to fill in last season when Williams went down.
Williams is just 25 years old and in the prime of his career, so bringing him back made sense, even more sense that re-signing Verrett. Back to full health in 2019, he should be given the chance to reclaim his starting role this coming season.
