Jerell Adams: Cut by Ravens
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams was let go by the Ravens on Saturday, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athleticreports.

The transaction means the Ravens have just two tight ends on their active roster -- a surprisingly low total given the team's extra reliance on the position. Adams could return to the roster at some point following the 53-man cutdown, though it's also possible he ends up on the team's practice squad in lieu of a larger free-agent name.

Ravens' Jerell Adams: Inks deal with Ravens
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams has signed a contract with the Ravens.

While Adams has a chunk of NFL action under his belt, he hasn't been able to keep a roster spot in either of the last two campaigns. He'll compete in training camp with the other Ravens' tight end options for the No. 3 spot on the depth chart.

Jerell Adams: Cut from practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Saints cut Adams from their practice squad Saturday, Katherine Terrell of The Athletic reports.

Adams has been with the practice squad since Dec. 12, but the Saints want to give Cole Wick a try now. The 26-year-old Adams has played in 30 NFL games, recording 24 receptions for 214 yards and a touchdown.

Jerell Adams: Joins Saints' practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Saints signed Adams to the practice squad Thursday, Katherine Terrell of The Athletic reports.

Adams appeared in one game with the Texans this season and then spent time on the team's practice squad. The South Carolina product will now look to make the most of his opportunity on New Orleans' practice squad. He'll likely need to impress on special teams for any chance of bumping to the 53-man roster.

Jerell Adams: Released from practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams was cut from Houston's practice squad Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Adams, who was one of several tight ends in the Texans' orbit since training camp, was let go to make room for linebacker Nate Hall. He appeared in one game for Houston this season, the regular-season opener, before landing on the team's practice squad.

Jerell Adams: Snags practice squad spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams (illness) was re-signed to the Texans' practice squad, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Adams was cut from the Texans' practice squad Oct. 9 with a non-football illness but, as evidenced by this news, he has shaken off the illness. He'll hope familiarity with the organization can lead to a call-up to earn a 53-man roster spot.

Jerell Adams: Cut from practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams was released from the Texans' practice squad with a non-football illness designation, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Adams was signed to the practice squad less than a week ago after being cut from the active roster. Once Adams is healthy again, he'll likely seek another practice squad role.

Jerell Adams: Signed to Texans' practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams was signed to Houston's practice squad Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

One day after being released by Houston, Adams rejoins the organization he's been with since training camp. The Texans are carrying a surplus of tight ends, so they let Adams go to create room for safety Mike Adams, who was added to the active roster this week.

Jerell Adams: Cut by Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams was waived by the Texans on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Adams appeared in one game for the Texans this season -- that being the season opener against New Orleans -- and he only saw the field on five special teams plays. The 2016 sixth-round pick spent his first two seasons with the Giants, catching 24 passes for 214 yards and a touchdown. He'll now have to find another opportunity elsewhere.

Texans' Jerell Adams: Sitting out Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Jaguars.

Adams doesn't appear to factor into Houston's gameplan with Darren Fells and Jordan Akins both healthy. He played five snaps on special teams Week 1.

Texans' Jerell Adams: Nabs roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams made the Texans roster, becoming the fourth tight end on the depth chart.

As of now, the Texans are opting to keep five tight ends with Kahale Warring (concussion) likely headed to the injured reserve list. Adams caught a pair of touchdowns during preseason and is in a crowded position group that includes 2018 draft picks Jordan Akins and Jordan Thomas, along with veteran Darren Fells, considered the best blocker of the bunch.

Texans' Jerell Adams: Productive in preseason opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams caught three passes for 17 yards and a touchdown in the Texans' preseason-opening loss to the Packers.

He's one of five tight ends in camp competing for what is expected to be three roster spots. With both Jordan Thomas and Kahale Warring nursing hamstring injuries, Adams could get increased looks during the second preseason contest Saturday against the Lions and submit more evidence that he belongs on the 53-man roster for Week 1 of the regular season.

Texans' Jerell Adams: Inks contract with Texans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Texans signed Adams to a reserve/future contract on Tuesday.

Adams joined Houston's practice squad in early October after spending his first two years in the league with the Giants. A 2016 sixth-round pick, Adams has 24 receptions for 214 yards and a touchdown in 29 career games. He'll look to add depth to Houston's young tight end group in 2019.

Jerell Adams: Signed to Texans' practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams inked a practice squad deal with the Texans on Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

A sixth-round pick in 2016, Adams contributed a bit with the Giants over the past couple seasons as a backup tight end. There's a chance he could be promoted to the active roster down the road, but for now, he will await an opportunity on the practice squad.

Giants' Jerell Adams: Quiet season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams, last year's sixth-round pick, mostly saw work on special teams in 2017.

With Evan Engram firmly entrenched as the team's starter, Adams will vie for a backup job again next preseason.

Giants' Jerell Adams: Inactive Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams (shoulder) is listed as inactive Sunday in Washington.

After landing on the Giants' injury report Thursday, Adams closed out the week with back-to-back limited sessions. The preceding wasn't exactly enough to forecast inactive status in Week 17, but the offense will nonetheless roll with Will Tye as the obvious No. 1 tight end. Due to the team's liberal use of the position, though, Larry Donnell will likely earn some snaps as well Sunday.

Giants' Jerell Adams: Questionable for Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams is nursing a shoulder injury and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Redskins.

Adams was limited in practices the last two days with the injury, and could be at some risk of missing his third game of the season. The reserve tight end has recorded no more than three catches or 27 receiving yards in any of his 13 appearances on the season, so he won't profile as a trustworthy fantasy option in Week 17 even if he's given the green light to play.

Giants' Jerell Adams: Has three catches
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams caught all three of his targets for 18 yards Sunday against the Lions.

Adams is getting some work behind starter Will Tye of late, but it's still a small role that's not likely to grow much more until next year -- if ever.

Giants' Jerell Adams: Tallies 11 yards in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams caught both of his targets for 11 total yards in Sunday's win over Dallas.

Adams looked to be coming along shortly after the Week 8 bye with back-to-back three-catch games and a touchdown to his name. He followed that up with consecutive catchless outings and has now totaled three catches and 21 yards in his last two games. Adams has shown flashes for a Giants team that hasn't had much going on at tight end in recent years. He's not being used often enough at this point, however, to turn that excitement into fantasy starts.

Giants' Jerell Adams: Catches one pass
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams caught one of three targets for 10 yards in Sunday's loss to Pittsburgh.

The rookie tight end looked good after the bye, with back-to-back three-catch games. Sunday's 10-yarder was his first reception since. In an offense in which starter Will Tye struggles to top two receptions per game, don't hold your breath waiting for Adams to get more love.
