Phillip Adams has racked up 18 tackles on defense to lead all Falcons’ corner backs, but don’t let that high number fool you. Adams is the Falcons’ third best corner and has shown why. He has given up a lot of completions in 2015 which is why the tackle number is so high. Adams appears to be on his way out of Atlanta after this year, but hopefully can provide the team with a little better play as the season progresses.
