Since 1995 - Insightful commentary on the Georgia Bulldogs

Post Phillip Daniels’ career at an end?

Monday July 21, 2008

Phillip Daniels is relatively anonymous among Bulldogs in the NFL. Most run-of-the-mill Georgia fans could list Ward, Seymour, Champ Bailey, Thomas Davis, and several others, but by now most of us have forgotten that Daniels, himself from a relatively anonymous time in Georgia football history, has been a 12+ year veteran of the NFL. He is well-respected around the league -especially for his workout routine and upper-body strength, and his 59 career sacks rank 17th among active players.

Daniels suffered a season-ending knee injury on the first day of summer camp for the Washington Redskins. At the age of 35 and his speed already waning, you have to wonder if he can come back from this. There’s only speculation now, and there’s still surgery and rehab ahead. Even if Daniels has played his last down, he’s had a full and successful professional career.

On a related note, another Bulldog, Demetric Evans, stepped in at Daniels’ spot in the drill.

  • I noticed they signed Jason Taylor last night as well. I’d love to see him rehab and get back on the field, but now that Taylor is there I’d say his days are over in DC.

  • Yeah, they did sign Taylor, but Taylor right now can’t be considered anything but a year-at-a-time guy now himself.
