Wade Phillips looking forward to seeing what Greg Gaines can do in pads

By:Cameron DaSilva

Rookies Greg Gaines comes in with high expectations for 2019, potentially replacing Ndamukong Suh at nose tackle. Wade Phillips loved his game coming out of Washington, but he has yet to see his full potential without pads being on.

The defensive class is headlined by a pair of former University of Washington Huskies in safety Taylor Rapp and defensive tackle Greg Gaines, each of whom could contribute in year one. For Gaines, step No. 2 in Phillips’ process played a role in helping him get to know his new defensive coordinator — even before Phillips addressed his rookies for the first time back in May.
