In their efforts to get back in the hunt in the always-competitive NFC East, the Washington Redskins have signed former defensive lineman Phillip Daniels to the position of director of player development, the team announced last week.
Daniels played 15 seasons in the NFL, including seven with the Redskins. Prior to that, he had stints with the Seahawks (1996-1999) and Bears (2000-2003).
"We welcome Phillip back to the Redskins family,” Washington GM Bruce Allen said, per the Washington Post. "His 15 years of NFL experience will be a great asset for our football team."
As the Post points out, Phillips was a member of four Redskins’ defenses that finished in the top 10 in yards allowed in the mid- to late-2000s.
“I’m really looking forward to helping our players and team win, on and off the field,” Daniels said.
