Former New York Giants Safety Kenny Phillips retires from the NFL, and talks of his future plans with Christopher Stock of 247 Sports.
“It was a blessing. It was a blessing to be drafted in the first round. It was a blessing to win a Super Bowl and end up in New York. The fan base up there is crazy. I enjoyed it. I enjoyed every season of it. Unfortunately injuries are a part of the game. It took a toll.
I’d love to still be playing right now, but physically I can’t so I just keep my mind off of it and do the next best thing, which is be around it as much as I can. Not even coaching, I just enjoy being around it.”
Phillips played 5 years with Big Blue including an amazing Super Bowl run. Struggling to recapture playing form, injuries to a toll on the University of Miami alumni.
His goal now remains complete his degree, having returned to The University of Miami as a sports administration major.
Best of luck in your future endeavors Super Bowl Champ!
