PewterReport.com is reporting Bucs safety-turned linebacker Jermaine Phillips is being moved back to safety by head coach Raheem Morris.

The move is not performance-related. The decision to move Phillips back to safety, where he spent the first seven years of his career, comes one week after the team learned starting S Tanard Jackson would be suspended for the first four games of the 2009 regular season for violation of the league's substance abuse policy.

With Phillips being moved to safety for at least the first quarter of the season, second-year player Geno Hayes likely will start at weakside linebacker for the Buccaneers.

Pewter Report will have a full story, with quotes included, later in the day.
