The Seahawks signed corner back Phillip Adams to a one-year deal on Thursday night, according to NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport.

Richard Sherman and Byron Maxwell will still be the projected starters at corner, but Adams could fill in nicely if need be and he may be competitive to take over the currently vacant position of returning punts.
Originally drafted by the San Francisco 49ers, Adams has also played for the New England Patriots and for parts of 2011 and 2012, he was a member of the Seahawks.

He only appeared in only one game in a Seattle jersey, however, before being released and picked up by the Oakland Raiders.
In Oakland, Adams appeared in 31 games, recording two interceptions at the corner position. He also returned punts for the Raiders, returning 33 kicks for 198 total yards.
