The New England Patriots made a move to bolster their secondary on Thursday.
Former Los Angeles Chargers safety Adrian Phillips and the Patriots have agreed to a two-year deal, according to Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports.

Phillips may not be a household name, but he is a Pro Bowler with the versatility that should allow him to fit well in Bill Belichick's defensive scheme. The soon-to-be 28-year-old can also play on special teams.
In 2019, Phillips played in only seven games after breaking his arm in Week 2. During his Pro Bowl 2018 campaign, Phillips racked up 94 total tackles, an interception, and nine passes defended.
