Ravens | Up Next For Phillips

The Baltimore Sun reports that the next meeting for RB Lawrence Phillips will be with Ravens head coach Brian Billick later today in Atlanta. If the meeting goes well Phillips is then expected to be brought to Baltimore next week to meet with senior team officials. "If Brian feels we should pursue this further, then we'll have Lawrence in for a meeting with several members of the front office soon," VP Ozzie Newsome said. "But again, we're just in the initial phase." The article speculates that even the mild interest in Phillips indicates that the team may not be sold on Priest Holmes as the primary RB although Billick says no. "This is very similar to what we're doing at the wide receiver position," Billick said. "We know the situation, but we brought in players like Webster Slaughter, Qadry Ismail and Billy Davis. It doesn't mean we're out to necessarily replace a player or saying we're devoid at that position. But the name of the game in this league is to get better." The team would reportedly look to give Phillips a contract for the veteran's minimum ($400,000) loaded with incentives.
