NFL Free Agency: Phillip Adams Signs With Seattle Seahawks

Cornerback Phillip Adams has returned to the Seattle Seahawks on a one-year deal, according to reports.

NFLMedia’s Ian Rapoport reported via Twitter:

And the Seahawks confirmed the signing:


Adams spent the last two seasons with the Oakland Raiders, playing in 31 of 32 games and making four starts. Last season he had one pass defensed and 30 tackles, while also returning eight punts for a 7.4-yard average.

In 2012, Adams saw more action on punt returns, bringing back 25 punts for a 5.6-yard average while making two interceptions, defensing five passes and making 15 tackles.

Adams, 25 was originally drafted by the 49ers in the seventh round of the 2010 draft out of South Carolina State. He played 15 games with the 49ers as a rookie, suffering a broken ankle in Week 16 and was among the 49ers’ final cuts in September 2011.

He signed with the Patriots later that month before he was waived, re-signed and waived again in October. The Pats brought him back in November before cutting him one last time. He finished the 2011 with the Seahawks and signed with the Raiders in September 2012.
