Date:

Falcons agreed to terms with CB Phillip Adams, formerly of the Jets.

Claimed off waivers by the Jets last September, Adams appeared in 12 games, making four starts. He was a liability when on the field, and is just a depth signing for the Falcons.

Jets claimed CB Phillip Adams off waivers from the Seahawks.

Adams got eaten alive in August, particularly in Seattle's preseason finale, when he was burned for two touchdowns on 38 snaps by players on the Raiders. Those stats come courtesy of Pro Football Focus. As the New York Daily News' Manish Mehta notes, 26-year-old Adams is now on his fifth NFL team.

Seahawks released CB Phillip Adams.

Now 26, Adams struggled mightily as a reserve for the Raiders last season. Adams has made only two career starts.
Sat, Aug 30, 2014 02:55:00 PM

Seahawks agreed to terms with CB Phillip Adams, formerly of the Raiders, to a one-year contract.

A career backup, Adams was one of the worst corners in the league last season, getting routinely toasted across 348 snaps. He made one appearance with Seattle in 2011. Adams will fight for one of the final spots on the 53-man roster.
Thu, Mar 27, 2014 07:36:00 PM

Raiders re-signed CB Phillip Adams to a one-year, $630,000 contract.

Oakland declined to tender Adams as an RFA earlier in the day. That would have paid him $1.323 million, so they save a little more than half that by re-upping him. Adams was arguably the Raiders' best corner in 2012, which isn't saying much. He could have a chance to start this season.
Tue, Mar 12, 2013 06:28:00 PM

Raiders failed to tender CB Phillip Adams, making him an unrestricted free agent.

Raiders brass at one point was high on Adams' potential, but he finished 2012 on injured reserve after multiple concussions and a groin injury. Perhaps the club will try to re-sign Adams for less than the low tender ($1.323 million).
Tue, Mar 12, 2013 04:49:00 PM

Raiders placed CB Phillip Adams (concussions, groin) on injured reserve, ending his season.

They also signed DE Brandon Bair and S Corey Nelms off the practice squad. Adams, 24, was seen inside the Oakland organization as a player with a lot of long-term potential. He figures to be tendered in 2013 restricted free agency.
Fri, Dec 28, 2012 03:39:00 PM

Raiders CB Phillip Adams suffered a groin injury in Sunday's loss to the Panthers.

Adams had been starting since Ronald Bartell was released, but suffered two concussions in the past three games and is now at risk of being shut down with another injury. He barely made an impact this year, and finished with just 14 tackles and two interceptions. A seventh-round pick of the 49ers in 2010, Adams will enter restricted free agency this offseason.
Mon, Dec 24, 2012 04:59:00 PM

Raiders CB Phillip Adams has suffered two concussions in the past three games.

He should be considered out indefinitely. Raiders management had high hopes for Adams when they claimed him off waivers from Seattle in early September, and he wound up overtaking Ronald Bartell at right cornerback. Oakland won't be able to continue to rely on Adams due to his proneness to concussions.
Mon, Dec 17, 2012 01:22:00 PM

Raiders CB Phillip Adams was forced from Sunday's game with a head injury.

Adams was sent to the locker room for testing after a hard collision. He was just concussed two weeks ago, so the Raiders are sure to exercise caution.
Sun, Dec 16, 2012 05:19:00 PM

Raiders CB/PR Phillip Adams sustained a concussion in Week 13 versus the Browns.

Adams had replaced Ron Bartell who got benched after being burned by Josh Gordon for a 44-yard touchdown. He's averaged a paltry 6.0 yards on 23 punt returns this season.
Mon, Dec 3, 2012 01:02:00 AM

Raiders claimed CB Phillip Adams off waivers from the Seahawks.

A seventh-round pick of the 49ers in 2010, Adams appeared in seven games between the Seahawks and Patriots last season. He'll attempt to stick as a special teamer in Oakland.
Sat, Sep 1, 2012 05:48:00 PM

Seahawks signed CB Phillip Adams, formerly of the Patriots.

Adams was the 49ers' seventh-round pick in 2010 and has been bouncing around ever since. He'll likely focus on special teams with the Seahawks.
Tue, Dec 20, 2011 03:22:00 PM

Patriots waived CB Phillip Adams.

Adams recorded eight tackles in several stints with the Pats this season. He had been handling slot duties as of late, so his release comes as a bit of a surprise.
