Report: Adrian Phillips agrees to one-year deal with Los Angeles Chargers

Adrian Phillips will remain with the Los Angeles Chargers for the 2018 season.

On Friday, the Chargers announced that the franchise has signed the fourth-year safety to a one-year deal. The details of the deal were not provided in the report.

The former Texas Longhorn is coming off of his most productive professional season.

As a hybrid safety under defensive coordinator Gus Bradley, in which Phillips also saw time as an additional linebacker, Phillips recorded career-high efforts across the board with 63 tackles, 5 passes defended and 2 interceptions in 15 games.

A former undrafted free agent, Phillips spent much of his first two seasons on the Chargers practice squad. In 2016, however, he emerged as a key contributor, totaling 40 tackles with 3 passes defended and 1 interception in 14 games, including six starts.

After topping that effort last season, Phillips has earned himself at least one more season with the Chargers.
