There were whispers the Giants were thinking about franchising Phillips last week, but health concerns made them pass on that. Phillips is a good coverage safety and will likely pair Phillips with fellow new acquisition SS Patrick Chung on their back end.
As for Williams, he was a starter on the Super Bowl champion Ravens and posted four interceptions along with 17 pass deflections and start opposite Bradley Fletcher while Phillips and Patrick Chung handle the safety spots.
