One of Kenny Phillips' few regrets is never meeting the former University of Miami safety with whom he was so frequently compared.

Even so, the late Sean Taylor influenced Phillips more than the former will ever know.

Taylor's killing last November — combined with the still-unsolved 2006 shooting death of Hurricanes defensive end Bryan Pata — helped sway Phillips to turn pro after his junior UM season.

"I don't want to say that kind of had something to do with my decision, but I thought about it," Phillips recently said. "I've been dreaming my whole life to get a chance to play in the NFL and here it is. I didn't want to lose that opportunity because you never know what's going to happen." Full Story – Fox Sports
