Phillip Adams Signs With Seahawks

Cornerback Phillip Adams has signed with the Seahawks, tweets Ian Rapoport of The 25-year-old will add some depth to a Seattle secondary that has lost Brandon Browner and Walter Thurmond this off-season.

Adams had spent the last two season with the Raiders, appearing in all 16 games in 2013. The five-year veteran was the team’s primary punt returner in 2012, when he returned 25 punts for 139 yards. Adams finished this past season with 30 total tackles and eight punt returns.

Adams was drafted out of South Carolina State University in 2010, selected by the 49ers with the 224th overall pick. He bounced around to the Patriots and (briefly) with the Seahawks before sticking in Oakland.

Adams will likely compete with Jeremy Lane and Byron Maxwell for the number two cornerback spot on the team’s depth chart.
