Buccaneers' Andrew Adams: Records five tackles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams posted five tackles (four solo) and a pass defensed in the Buccaneers' 27-23 loss to the Titans on Sunday.

Adams logged 62 defensive snaps overall and posted his second straight five-tackle effort while making a second straight start at strong safety. Adams' playing time has come at the expense of rookie Mike Edwards, who'd allowed an 80.0 percent completion rate and and one touchdown in primary coverage through his first five games this season.

Buccaneers' Andrew Adams: Re-ups with Bucs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams signed a contract with the Buccaneers on Tuesday, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Adams led Tampa Bay in interceptions last season with four, but he was ultimately let go. As Auman notes, the 26-year-old reunites with his former team just in time to face Cam Newton, whom Adams picked off three times in Week 13 last season.

Andrew Adams: Cut by Lions
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams was let go by Detroit on Friday, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Adams is coming off of a decent 2018 season that saw him record 38 tackles (29 solo) and nine passes defensed, including four interceptions in 13 games for Tampa Bay. After being unable to secure a backup slot with Detroit, he could get scooped up in the coming weeks by a team that faces injuries to the safety position.

Giants' Andrew Adams: Competing for starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams will compete for a starting role at free safety during training camp, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

Adams ran with the first-string defense during OTAs and minicamp this spring, suggesting he's the early favorite to win the job in advance of camp His primary competition, Darian Thompson, was the team's starter at free safety in all 16 games last season, but the 2016 third-round pick struggled in run support and ultimately finished the year as Pro Football Focus' 76th-ranked safety out of 89 qualifiers.

Giants' Andrew Adams: Posts 34 tackles during 2017 campaign
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams logged 34 tackles, two passes defensed and one forced fumble in 16 games during the 2017 regular season.

Adams, who played 746 defensive snaps at safety during his rookie campaign in 2016, was primarily used on special teams throughout his second year in the league with the Giants. He'll likely battle for a depth spot at safety behind Landon Collins (forearm) and Darian Thompson in 2018.

Giants' Andrew Adams: Expected to start for Collins in Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams is expected to start at strong safety Sunday against the Redskins with Landon Collins (forearm) landing on injured reserve, Michael Eisen of the Giants' official site reports.

Adams was previously in line to start Week 15 against the Eagles when Collins was listed as doubtful with an ankle injury, but the star safety surprisingly gained clearance to play before departing early. The ankle aggravation didn't prevent Collins from starting Week 16 against the Cardinals either, but he'll officially be shuttered for the season after suffering a broken forearm in that contest. Adams shouldn't be expected to match Collins' 6.9 tackle-per-game pace as he steps into a focal role in the secondary, but the prospect of increased snaps keeps Adams on the IDP radar nonetheless. While serving as a reserve the past two weeks, Adams has accumulated 11 stops across 131 snaps (89 on defense, 42 on special teams).

Giants' Andrew Adams: Likely starting at strong safety in Week 15
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams is expected to receive the start at strong safety in Sunday's game against the Eagles, Jordan Raanan of reports.

The Giants only have two healthy safeties on the roster with Landon Collins (ankle) doubtful for Week 15 and Nat Berhe (hamstring) ruled out for the contest, so Adams is positioned to start alongside free safety Darian Thompson almost by default. While the lack of alternatives should put Adams in line for a hefty snap count, it would be unwise to bank on him delivering the huge tackle totals that Collins has consistently provided in recent weeks. Adams has seen most of his action on special teams in his 13 appearances this season, providing 16 tackles and forcing a fumble.

Giants' Andrew Adams: Competing in training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams was impressive during OTAs and could compete for the starting free safety position, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports. Safeties coach David Merritt said of the competition, "I'm going to be honest with you, you can sit here right now and say yes [it's Darian Thompson], but I can't sit here and take away from what Andrew Adams has done."

Adams notched 46 tackles, five passes defensed and one interception over 14 games last season as a replacement for Darian Thompson, who missed almost the entire year with a foot injury. However, with Thompson back to full health, it appears as if he is the favorite to claim the starting free safety role. While Adams is a dark horse, it's tough to rule out the 24-year-old completely, making this training camp battle quite intriguing.

Giants' Andrew Adams: Questionable Week 10
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams is questionable for Monday's game against Cincinnati due to a shoulder injury.

Adams was limited in practice throughout the week and is likely on the injury side of probable. If he's held out on Monday the Giants will be without any regular reserves at safety behind starters Nat Berhe and Landon Collins.
