Jets sign Wagner CB Al Phillips

The Jets have signed Wagner CB Al Phillips. The announcement was made by the school.

The 6-1, 195-pound Phillips also returns both kickoffs and punts for the Seahawks. His kickoff return average (27.6 ypr) was tops amongst NEC players and his punt return average (11.2 ypr) ranked second.

Shortly after the draft concluded, Phillips received a call from Jets' secondary coach Jerome Henderson. "He indicated that I would have a good chance to make the team and that they are definitely interested in me as both a special teams players and as a cornerback," said Phillips. "I am excited about competing for a spot on an NFL team. It's a great opportunity and I intend to show them what I can do."
