Raiders re-sign CB Phillip Adams

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

The Raiders made their first move of the 2013 free agency period. They re-signed cornerback Phillip Adams.

Who said the Raiders wouldn't be players on the first day of free agency? Just a couple hours into it, the Raiders announce their first big splash. They have re-signed cornerback Phillip Adams to a one year deal worth a reported $630,000 according to Steve Corkran of the Bay Area News Group.

It's not the "Philip" that most people may have been hoping to see the Raiders re-sign -- that would be Wheeler -- but it's something.

Adams was the team's lone Restricted Free Agent this year. The Raiders didn't tender him heading into free agency which made him an unrestricted free agent temporarily. But they soon signed him to his new deal to keep him around another year.

Adams was a bright spot for the Raiders at corner last season... when he played. He was injured several times during the season which was difficult for the Raiders who were already dealing with several serious injuries that kept the previous starters out much of the season.

The third year corner appeared in 15 games, starting 3 of them. He also returned 25 punts.

A one-year deal allows Adams to not only prove he can sustain his fine play but that he can remain healthy. The Raiders signed Adams originally last preseason after the Seahawks released him in their final roster cutdown.
