At 5’11, 202 lbs, the 28-year-old is coming off of a depth role with the Super Bowl-winning Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Having started 11 games in 2019, his role was capped with the drafting of Antoine Winfield Jr. The Safety room became crowded with guys like Jordan Whitehead also emerging. He only played in 23 defensive snaps last season, spending most of his time on special teams (65% of snaps).
Prior to his run with the Bucs, he spent time with the New York Giants, starting 13 games as a UDFA in 2016. He spent two years in New York before signing in Tampa Bay and has 32 career starts through 73 total appearances.
Adams will enter the offseason looking to earn back a starting role and has a strong chance of doing so. He’ll be jostling with inexperienced players such as K’Von Wallace and Marcus Epps for playing time. A strong starting resume will give him the inside track to begin with, and his prowess on special teams will go some way in negating the loss of Rudy Ford, who appeared in 31% of special teams snaps for the Eagles last year.
