The Los Angeles Chargers agreed to terms on a one-year contract with Pro Bowl S Adrian Phillips, the organization announced on Friday. Phillips has spent his entire five-year career with the Bolts.
Phillips, who was selected to his first career Pro Bowl and named first-team Associated Press All-Pro on special teams, led the NFL with 19 special teams tackles in 2018. Overall, Phillips was third on the team with 77 combined tackles. He added nine passes defensed, one interception and one forced fumble.
In the AFC Wild Card win at Baltimore, Phillips became the first player to have an interception and a fumble recovery in a postseason game since CB Robert Alford did so for Atlanta in Super Bowl LI. He was the first AFC player to do so since S T.J. Ward accomplished the feat for Denver in Super Bowl 50.
The Texas native has appeared in 57 career games, making 19 starts. The undrafted free agent out of the University of Texas has totaled 188 tackles, two forced fumbles, five interceptions and eight tackles for loss.
