  • Jaguars' Tyrell Adams: Sticks with Jacksonville

    Adams signed a one-year deal with the Jaguars on Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports. Adams was signed by the Jaguars off the 49ers' practice squad at the end of December and appeared in two games for Jacksonville down the stretch. He played exclusively on special teams and totaled three tackles and two forced fumbles during his time with the Jaguars. He figures to garner a similar role during the 2022 season.

  • Jaguars' Tyrell Adams: Signs with Jacksonville

    The Jaguars signed Adams to their active roster from the 49ers' practice squad Wednesday. The Jaguars currently have eight linebackers away from the team due to COVID-19 protocols, so Adams will provide insurance in case any of them are ruled out for Week 17. The 29-year-old linebacker made five appearances for San Francisco this season, playing nearly exclusively on special teams.

  • Tyrell Adams: Jettisoned by Buffalo

    Adams was one of five players cut by the Bills on Tuesday, Sal Capaccio of WGR Sports Radio 550 Buffalo reports. Adams at one point seemed to have a decent chance at landing a spot as a primary backup to starter Tremaine Edmunds, but the Bills place a heavy emphasis on special teams ability from their backups, and guys like Tyler Matakevich and Marquel Lee have Adams beat there.

  • Bills' Tyrell Adams: Will jockey for positioning

    Adams, signed to a one-year deal by the Bills this offseason, will be one of several linebackers fighting for a roster spot, Jason Wolf of The Buffalo News reports. Wolf surmises that four linebackers are locks for spots -- Tremaine Edmunds, Matt Milano, A.J. Klein and special teams stud Tyler Matakevich -- and from there it will be Adams and several others competing for one or two final spots. Adams probably has the best pedigree of the others -- he's played in the league for five seasons and posted 125 total tackles last season -- and has a similar skill set to Milano, who's fought frequent injuries in his career. Tyrel Dodson, Andre Smith, Joe Giles-Harris, Marquel Lee and Mike Bell are the others up for those 1-2 spots, with Dodson offering a good amount of experience in the Bills' system.

  • Texans' Tyrell Adams: Well positioned for free agency

    Adams will become an unrestricted free agent during the offseason. Adams, in his third year in a Texans uniform, exploded in 2020 when he took over at inside linebacker following Benardrick McKinney's season-ending shoulder injury in Week 4. Adams recorded double-digit tackles in six of 12 starts and finished with 125 tackles, second only to Zach Cunningham. The 28-year-old significantly enhanced his marketability, although there is not a long track record. Prior to 2020, Adams appeared in 21 games over four NFL seasons.

  • Texans' Tyrell Adams: Second-leading tackler in loss

    Adams collected seven total tackles during Sunday's 10-7 loss to Cleveland. In what was by far Houston's lowest-scoring affair of the 2020 campaign, the Browns punished the Texans front to the tune of 231 rushing yards and one rushing score on 41 team carries. Adams reached seven or more tackles for the fifth consecutive outing, registering yet another start in place of the injured Benardrick McKinney (shoulder). With McKinney already ruled out for the remainder of the 2020 campaign, expect Adams to continue racking up respectable tackle totals as a fill-in for the Texans' front seven.

  • Texans' Tyrell Adams: Hits free agency after modest 2019

Adams, who also appeared in both of the team's playoff games, will become an unrestricted free agent in March.

  • Texans' Tyrell Adams: Inactive against Ravens

    Adams (coach's decision) is inactive for Week 11. Adams' role likely would have been restricted to special teams if he suited up, so his absence should not negatively impact Houston's defensive performance. Benardrick McKinney, per usual, figures to get the starting nod at middle linebacker.

  • Raiders' Tyrell Adams: Notches first seven tackles of career

    Adams accounted for seven tackles (four solo) during the Raiders' win over the Titans on Sunday. Entering Sunday's 2017 regular-season opener, Adams had never recorded a single tackle during his NFL career after appearing in six games with the Raiders in 2016. That all changed against the Titans, as he finished with the third-most tackles for Oakland despite coming off the bench. Adams was on the field for 64 percent of the team's defensive snaps, while starting middle linebacker Marquel Lee appeared for 33 percent.
