LB Jason Phillips working out for Cowboys

8/22/2014

IRVING, Texas -- Veteran linebacker Jason Phillips is working out for the Dallas Cowboys on Thursday.

Phillips, 28, a TCU product, was cut by the Philadelphia Eagles this week.

Phillips missed all of last season because of a torn ACL suffered during training camp.

Originally a fifth-round pick by the Baltimore Ravens, Phillips had his best season in 2012 with the Carolina Panthers, serving as a core special-teams player and making two starts at linebacker.

The Cowboys are looking for linebacker depth after doctors advised DeVonte Holloman, a sixth-round pick last year, to retire from football because of a neck condition.
