Adams rushed 11 times for 47 yards and a touchdown while catching two of four targets for 12 yards in Sunday's 28-14 loss to the Patriots to close out the season. Adams scored from one yard out in the third quarter to bookend his season with touchdowns, as his only other visit to the end zone came all the way back in Week 1. He and Ty Johnson each got 11 carries with Frank Gore (chest) and La'Mical Perine (illness) out. Adams was fourth on New York's running back depth chart with everybody healthy, and he'll be fighting an uphill battle for a roster spot next season.
Adams rushed six times for 27 yards and caught both of his targets for three yards in Sunday's 40-3 loss to the Seahawks. Adams led the Jets in rushing yards, narrowly edging Frank Gore (eight carries for 23 yards) and Ty Johnson (eight carries for 16 yards). Most of Adams' production came in garbage time, however, and working as part of a three-man running back rotation in the league's lowest-scoring offense isn't a recipe for success heading into a Week 15 matchup with the Rams.
Adams rushed eight times for 74 yards and wasn't targeted in the passing game in Sunday's 31-28 loss to the Raiders. The Jets leaned primarily on Ty Johnson (22 carries for 104 yards and a touchdown) after Frank Gore suffered a concussion early on, but Adams made the most of his change-of-pace role against the vulnerable Raiders run defense. Adams should see a similar role behind Johnson against the Seahawks in Week 14 if Gore's not ready to return.
Adams rushed once for one yard in Sunday's 20-3 loss to Miami. The rumblings about a running back rotation following La'Mical Perine's ankle injury didn't hold much water on game day, as Frank Gore got 21 touches to three for Ty Johnson and one for Adams. Adams' barely existent role on New York's league-worst offense doesn't inspire much confidence ahead of a Week 13 clash with the Raiders.
The Jets signed Adams to the active roster Tuesday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports. La'Mical Perine suffered a high-ankle sprain during Sunday's loss to the Chargers and is expected to miss at least a couple of games. Adams was promoted as a result, and he'll add depth in the backfield behind Frank Gore and Ty Johnson. Through five games with the Jets over the past two seasons, Adams recorded 20 yards and a touchdown on 11 carries and caught two passes for 14 yards.
