Former Buccaneers S Jermaine Phillips has been suspended by the NFL for one game. The league has not disclosed the reason for the suspension.

Phillips played eight seasons in Tampa, the most recent being 2009 when he started two games for the Buccaneers, making 11 tackles. He was placed on injured reserve with a broken left thumb and wasn't re-signed as a free agent last offseason.

Phillips is now playing with the Omaha Nighthawks of the United Football League, along with former Buccaneers Michael Clayton, Jeff Garcia, Cato June and Dewayne White.

Phillips is eligible to be signed by any NFL team.
