The Seahawks have brought back a defensive back for a second tour with the club.

According to NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport, the Seahawks have signed Raiders cornerback Phillip Adams to a one-year contract.

The Seahawks have confirmed the signing.

The 25-year-old Adams played in all 16 games (two starts) for Oakland last season, recording 30 tackles. In Seattle, he figures to contend for a backup job at corner, and he could also see some work on special teams.

Adams (5-11, 195) spent the end of the 2011 regular season and the entire 2012 preseason with the Seahawks. Seattle waived him on August 31, 2012, and Oakland was assigned him on waivers the next day. Adams has appeared in 31-of-32 regular season games for the Raiders in the last two seasons.

In addition to his time with Seattle and Oakland, Adams has had stints with San Francisco (2010-2011) and New England (2011). He was a seventh-round selection of the 49ers in 2010 out of South Carolina State.

  1. See it’s not that hard, this site CAN publish an article about player movement from the Raiders roster without littering it with unprofessional and classless editorial conjecture. Guess it all hangs on the by line.

  2. The Seahawks last Super Bowl will forever be disregarded.

    PEDs don’t equal actual wins.

    Just as no one takes the Patriots spygate Super Bowl wins serious.


  3. Ah, but you see “Vikes”, fans of the “shehawks” can generally spell correctly, which tells us that we aren’t destroying any barrels. Doesn’t it bother you that your Vikes routinely get humiliated by “she – hawks”?

    Welcome back to the Emerald City, Mr. Adams. It surprises me that Mr. Davis, let you go.

  4. Bringing in competition…….That’s the system and philosophy that worked last year.

    Go Hawks!

  5. Hmmm, I think I remember Antoine Winfield walking away from vikes and trying to make Hawks secondary…but wasn’t good enough.


  6. Adams along with Tharold Simon and Jeremy Lane will prove productive backups within LOB. This move narrows the Seahawks’ focus in the 2014 draft to the trenches. 1st round pick will be an offensive guard or tackle who will compete with Bowie and Bailey in the rotation. However, it will always remain, best athlete available (based on production not potential) which may direct Seattle to pick a wide receiver too. I dare anyone to figure out Carroll or Schneider. In addition, which for Seattle to pick off a defensive run stopper that Cable will develop.

  7. Lol, so this is what it feels like to have the best team in the world.a bunch of scabs winning about peds and every other possible conspiracy as to why the Champs annihilated the best offense in history. The Vikings lol u guys THEE joke we take any player from your squad we want.thanks for Percy btw… Viking fans this article is for you specifically.AP doesn’t do anything but out up numbers.Defense is obviously the key to the trophy. We

  8. The Seahawks r the youngest team I’m the Nfl about to putt together a 5 year run because our richest owner in the history of all sports hit that way by not being an idiot. U spend 15 million a year on a position that’s worth 4 mill (vikings) the hawks find young talent and develop them. The only other team that congress close is the patriots. We got more depth than any. What happens when adding ap gets rocked and I’d out for 6 games? Your season is over. Seahawks just say next man up

  9. Phillip Adams is positively RELIEVED that his career isn’t in a dramatic freefall, such as dropping from the mediocre Raiders to football’s HOOT factory, the Minnesota Vikings!

    That’s because the Raiders didn’t draft him, the Niners did.

  11. Sa Raider fan i’m dissappointed.
    Letting Philip go was a foolish move.
    He has a huge amount of still unexpressed talent.
    Glad to see he left for a strong and classy franchise.

    By the way, wish him best luck.

  12. Seattle signing another team’s starter as our back up/special teamer.

    Of course unlike the inferior competition, Seattle players know they’ll have a shot.

    The strong continue to get stronger.

  13. Solid backup. Depth chart starts with Sherman, Maxwell and Lane. After that Simon and Adams can fight it out for playing time. If Adams can bring it on special teams that’s a bonus. Seems like most of the Raider fans liked the guy. Let’s extend Thomas and Sherman now.
