Seahawks sign cornerback Phillip Adams

After a two-season stay with the Raiders in Oakland, cornerback Phillip Adams returns to the Seahawks – a team he spent time with in 2011 & 2012.

The Seahawks welcome a familiar face back to their “Legion of Boom” defense.

Cornerback Phillip Adams signed with the club on Thursday night, returning to the team he spent time with in 2011 and through training camp in 2012 before he was released on the Seahawks’ roster cutdown to 53 players. Shortly following his exit from the Pacific Northwest, Adams joined the Raiders in Oakland, where he played in 31 games the past two seasons, racking up 45 tackles, two interceptions, and six passes defensed.

The Seahawks lost cornerback Brandon Browner to the New England Patriots and nickel-back Walter Thurmond to the New York Giants in free agency this offseason. Adams adds some needed depth to a position that also features All-Pro Richard Sherman, Byron Maxwell, Jeremy Lane, Tharold Simon, Chandler Fenner, and Akeem Auguste.

Adams also saw action as a punt returner during his two-season stay in Oakland, bringing back 33 balls for 198 yards (6.0-yard average), including a long of 47 (2012). Seattle is currently without a designated punt returner with wide receiver Golden Tate taking his talents to the Detroit Lions in free agency, so Adams could compete for playing time in that area as well.

The 5-foot-11, 195-pound Adams, who played his collegiate ball at South Carolina State University, was originally drafted by the division rival San Francisco 49ers in 2010.
