Another blow hit the Buffalo Bills’ roster as yet another free agent departed for the New York Giants on April 11.

The news, broken by NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, revealed that Jordan Phillips would reunite with former Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daboll in New York, a move that had been in the works for some time. Rapoport highlighted the Giants’ bolstering of their defensive line ahead of the draft with this addition.

Phillips, who had endeared himself to fans during his four seasons with the Bills, bid farewell to the Bills Mafia with a heartfelt Instagram post after signing a one-year, $3 million contract with Buffalo last offseason. In his post, he expressed his deep affection for Buffalo, saying, “Till next time Buffalo I love you more than you’ll ever know!”

The post attracted a flurry of responses from fans and former teammates alike. Bills linebacker Terrel Bernard thanked Phillips for his contributions, while defensive end Greg Rousseau offered his support. One fan expressed their disappointment at his departure and hoped for his return, even if just for tailgating. Former Bills great Thurman Thomas also expressed his appreciation, and former Bills wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie, now with the Giants, hinted at a reunion, saying, “SEE YOU SOON 😁.”

Phillips will join a growing contingent of former Bills in the Giants locker room, including Devin Singletary, Isaiah Hodgins, and Boogie Basham.
