Williams has played the last four seasons in Baltimore, recording 67 tackles and four interceptions during the 2012-13 season. Last year, he turned down a three-year, $15 million extension to remain in Baltimore.
Phillips, who played in just seven games last for the Giants due to a knee injury, signed a one-year deal with Philly. The former first round pick of the Giants in 2008, recorded just 18 tackles in 2012-13.
The Eagles defense was ranked 15th in the NFL last year, allowing 343.2 yards per game, but ranked 30th in interceptions, recording just eight on the year.
