Shaun Phillips took less money to sign with the Broncos and chase a championship

Linebacker Shaun Phillips told the Denver Post that he turned down more money elsewhere to sign with the Broncos and have a chance at winning a Super Bowl.

“That’s why I came here, to be in this situation, to be with a team that is right there in the mix,” Phillips said. “I want a chance at the whole thing, and that means you’re with a team that believes it, and you’re with a team that will do the work.

“This team will put in the work. A lot of teams say they’re good, but the ones that really go after it, that’s what you want to be around, that’s what you want to be about.”

Phillips joined the right team if he wants a chance at a championship.  The Broncos have as good a chance as any other team to win a title in 2013.
