Bills' Tyrell Adams: Will jockey for positioning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Bills' Tyrell Adams: Heading to Buffalo
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams agreed to a contract with the Bills on Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Adams enjoyed a breakout campaign in 2020 after Benardrick McKinney's season-ending shoulder injury thrust him into the starting lineup Week 4. While playing a near every-down role through the final 12 games of the year, Adams ended his third season with the Texans with a career-best 125 tackles (76 solo) plus two sacks and four pass breakups. Adams should get every chance to earn a consistent role in Buffalo, but he's unlikely to repeat every-down usage going forward. In that case, he won't be a lock for high-end fantasy production in IDP formats.

Texans' Tyrell Adams: Well positioned for free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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: Records sack in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams made seven tackles and had one sack in Sunday's 36-7 loss to the Bears.

Adams had a two-game streak of double-digit tackles broken but was able to record his second sack of the season. Since taking over for Benardrick McKinney nine games ago, Adams has averaged 10.3 stops per game.

Texans' Tyrell Adams: Leads in tackles again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams recorded a team-high 12 tackles in Sunday's 26-20 loss to the Colts.

Adams once again led the Texans in stops, recording double-digit tackles in two straight weeks and five times in the last eight games.

Texans' Tyrell Adams: Leading tackler in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams had a team-high 17 tackles, a pass defensed and two forced fumbles in Thursday's 41-25 win over the Lions.

It was another monster performance for Adams, who recorded his fourth double-digit tackle game in the last seven contests. Meanwhile, both of his forced fumbles led to Houston recoveries. Since taking over for Benardrick McKinney, Adams is averaging 10.6 tackles per game.

Texans' Tyrell Adams: Second-leading tackler in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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: Records double-digit stops
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams led Houston with 12 tackles in Sunday's 27-25 win over Jacksonville.

Adams has filled up the stat sheet since taking over for the injured Benardrick McKinney (shoulder). For the third time in four games since McKinney's injury, Adams recorded double-digit stops at inside linebacker. It wasn't all good for the linebacker; he dropped an interception that might've gone for a touchdown.

Texans' Tyrell Adams: Active in the middle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams recorded 10 tackles in Sunday's 35-20 loss to the Packers.

Adams continues to fill in credibly for Benardrick McKinney (shoulder) at inside linebacker. He's recorded 31 tackles in the three weeks without McKinney, who will miss the rest of the season.

Texans' Tyrell Adams: Records first sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams had eight tackles (six solo), one sack and two passes defensed during Sunday's 42-36 overtime loss to the Titans.

The 28-year-old received the start with Benardrick McKinney (shoulder) sidelined, and he tallied the first sack of his career. Adams has 25 total tackles through six games this season, though it's only the past two contests in which he's played major defensive snaps. He could be a solid IDP option if he continues the current level of production.

Texans' Tyrell Adams: Promoted to starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams will start at inside linebacker in place of the injured Benardrick McKinney, who will miss the rest of the season with a shoulder injury, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Adams, an undrafted free agent out of Division II West Georgia, filled in for McKinney in Sunday's win over the Jaguars. He recorded a team-high 13 tackles, including one for a loss, and recovered a fumble.

Texans' Tyrell Adams: Re-ups with Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Texans signed Adams to a one-year contract Friday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Adams contributed as a reserve option in Houston's linebacker corps in 2019, recording just 13 tackles and one forced fumble across five-regular season games. The 27-year-old stands to compete for a similar role heading into the 2020 campaign.

Texans' Tyrell Adams: Hits free agency after modest 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams appeared in five regular-season games for the Texans in 2019, recording 13 tackles and forcing one fumble.

The 27-year-old opened the season on the practice squad before being added to the active roster at the end of the September. He was a healthy inactive until late in the season, when injuries hit the Texans' linebacking corps. 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Texans' Tyrell Adams: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams (undisclosed) was placed on the Texans' injured reserve list Tuesday, according to the official NFL Transactions Report.

Tyrell Adams: Let go by Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams (undisclosed) was waived/injured by the Texans on Monday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Texans' Tyrell Adams: Signs with Texans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams was promoted to the Texans' 53-man roster Saturday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Adams signed a contract with the Colts during the offseason, but was ultimately placed on injured reserve prior to the season kicking off. Both parties eventually came to terms on an injury settlement, and the linebacker found a home on Houston's practice squad. He has been called up to the active roster in order to provide depth at inside linebacker, as the position is thin at the moment. The 26-year-old recorded 11 tackles (four solo) in six games for the Raiders last season.
