Seahawks sign CB Phillip Adams

The Seahawks have added some depth in the secondary by signing free-agent cornerback Phillip Adams to a one-year deal, Seahawks officials announced Thursday evening

Adams (5-foot-11, 195 pounds) spent the past two seasons with the Oakland Raiders, but he was on the Seahawks' roster in 2011, playing in one game. He played college football at South Carolina State and was a seventh-round draft choice by San Francisco in 2010.

Adams, 25, played in all 16 games for Oakland last year, finishing with 30 tackles and one fumble recovery. Adams also has returned punts in his career, so he likely will get a chance to show what he can do there for Seattle.
