The Titans plan to release veteran linebacker Shaun Phillips on Tuesday, according to sources familiar with the situation. Phillips, an 11-year veteran, signed a two-year deal with the Titans in the offseason, and received a $750,000 signing bonus with base salaries of $1.5 million (in 2014) and $2.55 million (in 2015). The team hoped he would provide a boost to the team's pass rush, but he failed to do so in the first 11 games. Phillips, 33, managed just two sacks and 28 tackles with the Titans. He had 79.5 sacks in the previous 10 seasons while playing nine seasons with the Chargers and one year with the Broncos.
