Roughnecks WR Cam Phillips Signs with Hamilton Ti-Cats

It’s been a long year for those of us who remember how PJ Walker and Cam Phillips took over the XFL for the Houston Roughnecks. Many players signed to contracts for other leagues since the shut down.

But for some reason, Cam Phillips wasn’t among them.

Many people speculated that it could be his size, or that as a young player, he should play special teams, but when you watch the way he plays, all of that should go away.

Cam owned other teams’ secondaries. 31 catches, a league leading 455 yards and 9 TDs in 5 games – including 2 games with 3 each.

The wonder can now cease. Cam Phillips has signed with the CFL’s Hamilton Tiger Cats.

The 25 year old former Virginia Tech star began his professional football career with the Bills as an UDFA in 2018. He joined the Roughnecks as a 6th round pick in the 2020 XFL Draft, and proceeded to control the field along with his QB PJ Walker, as they led the Roughnecks to a 5-0 record.

Phillips spent a little time with the Panthers during last year’s training camp, but was waived a few days later.

He’ll have to bring that dominance back on the field to make the Ti-Cats roster, but there’s a high chance he’ll be in the team once they get started in August – barring a vote of NO on Monday from the Board of Governors.

It’s exciting to see that we have another chance to see Cam play again. It’s been a long time coming.

Note: Phillips former teammate with the Roughnecks Kahlil Lewis was cut.
