Steelers Looking at Miami DB Kenny Phillips?

The following is from on Kenny Phillips talking to the Steelers:

A league source tells us that Miami defensive back Kenny Phillips conducted a private workout in South Florida on Thursday for the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Phillips is widely regarded as the top safety available in this year’s draft, and he is expected to go at the bottom of round one, or at the top of round two.

The Steelers already have a first-rounder in the secondary in Troy Polamalu. The addition of Phillips with the No. 23 overall pick, if it happens, might be a sign that coach Mike Tomlin is laying the foundation for a change from the 3-4 to the Tampa 2 defense, since solid safety play is critically important to the success of the attack that helped get Tomlin the job he now has.
