Panthers' Mike Adams: Won't stay with Panthers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams will not re-sign with the Panthers, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

Adams was a 16-game starter the past two seasons in Carolina, averaging 72 tackles, eight passes defensed and 2.5 interceptions, though he struggled in coverage during the 2018 campaign. The Panthers hope to get younger and faster on defense, albeit without an obvious replacement on the roster to start alongside Eric Reid at safety. The team may look to the draft to address its deficiency, while Adams will hit the open market in mid-March shortly before he celebrates his 38th birthday. He has already announced his intention to continue playing football for at least one more season.

Panthers' Mike Adams: Another productive campaign
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams finished the 2018 regular season with 75 tackles (47 solo) and three interceptions on six passes defended in 16 games played.

Adams remains a productive player despite being 37 years old, as he's now topped 60 tackles in all but four of his 15 seasons. That includes eight straight campaigns with that achievement, which should result in interest in him as he becomes a free agent this offseason. The veteran ranked fourth on the Panthers in tackles, trailing only linebackers Luke Kuechly, Thomas Davis and Shaq Thompson.

Panthers' Mike Adams: Tallies nine tackles Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams recorded nine tackles (six solo) in Sunday's loss to Detroit.

Adams' nine tackles Sunday is his season high through 10 games. The veteran safety has been a consistent performer for the Panthers this season. He's on pace for a career high in tackles in what is his age-37 season. He'll look to continue the strong play next week, when Carolina takes on the Seahawks.

Panthers' Mike Adams: Another interception Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams recorded three tackles, all solo, an interception and a pass defensed across 68 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Ravens.

Adams now has three interceptions on the year, which surpasses his season-total from each of the last two seasons. The 37-year-old hasn't lost a step this season, as he played in 100 percent of the defensive snaps Sunday -- bringing his season-total snap count to 448 (99 percent).

Panthers' Mike Adams: Two interceptions Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams recorded six tackles (five solo), two interceptions and two passes defensed across 56 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Giants.

The veteran safety doubled down on interceptions Sunday, snagging his first picks since Week 9 of last season. The initial one came with the Giants driving into the red zone late in the third quarter. His second came early in the fourth with the Giants trailing by 11.

Panthers' Mike Adams: Shows nose for ball
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams finished with 69 tackles (48 solo), two interceptions, two fumble recoveries and two fumbles forced in 16 games played this season.

Adams, who joined the Panthers last offseason, tied for the team high by having a hand in six turnovers forced. While that boosted his value, the 36-year-old posted his fewest tackles since 2013. Nonetheless, he still ranked fifth on Carolina in stops, and will be back in 2018 for the final year of his contract.

Panthers' Mike Adams: Recovers fumble in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams recorded six tackles (five solo) and recovered a fumble in Sunday's win over the Packers.

Adams played 91 percent of Carolina's defensive snaps Sunday (64). His fumble recovery came late in the fourth quarter on the Packers' final offensive drive, with Aaron Rodgers marching the team down the field, threatening to tie the contest. He'll now be tasked with containing the Buccaneers' passing offense as the Panthers remain in the thick of the playoff race.

Panthers' Mike Adams: Full participant Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams was a full participant at Thursday's practice after being limited Wednesday with a knee injury.

Adams' full participation Thursday has him on track to play in Sunday's game against the Saints. The safety and the rest of Carolina's defense will look to slow down New Orleans' red-hot rushing attack.

Panthers' Mike Adams: Full participant Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams was a full participant in Friday's practice after dealing with a shoulder stinger and concussion-like symptoms, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Charlotte Observer reports.

Adams suffered a shoulder injury during the Panthers' Week 9 victory over the Falcons and was apparently also treated for concussion-like symptoms. The latter was not originally reported, but his full participation at Friday's practice indicates he is on track to play in Week 10.

Panthers' Mike Adams: Missing practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams (shoulder) isn't practicing Wednesday, Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer reports.

Adams sustained a shoulder stinger during last week's victory over the Falcons. It's possible the Panthers coaching staff is simply giving him extra time off to fully recover. Thus, his availability for Monday's matchup with the Dolphins doesn't seem to be in danger quite yet.

Panthers' Mike Adams: Suffers shoulder stinger
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams sustained a shoulder stinger in Sunday's win over the Falcons and will undergo X-rays, David Newton of reports.

Adams indicated that he "should be fine," but will still undergo medical testing. Jarius Byrd likely would fill in at strong safety should Adams be forced to miss anything more than practice time.

Panthers' Mike Adams: Injures shoulder Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams suffered a shoulder injury in Sunday's win over the Falcons and did not return.

Adams sustained the injury while making a tackle in the fourth quarter and he was designated questionable to return. There hasn't been an update on the severity of the injury. Jarius Byrd stepped in at strong safety in his absence.

Panthers' Mike Adams: Nabs first INT of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams made three solo tackles and hauled in an interception Sunday against the Buccaneers.

Although Adams was low on tackles Sunday, it was a good sign that he was able to force his first turnover of the season. However, he remains inconsistent in his tackle count, so it's risky to summon him as an IDP asset at this time.

Panthers' Mike Adams: Paces team in tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams posted eight tackles (three solo) in Thursday night's 28-23 loss to the Eagles.

Adams led the Panthers in stops, bringing his tally to 30 through six games, which is good for fifth on Carolina thus far.

Panthers' Mike Adams: Playing strong safety in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Panthers signed Adams to play strong safety in 2017, Joseph Person of The Charlotte Observer reports.

The 36-year-old veteran recorded just two passes defended last season -- his lowest total since his 2007 campaign with the Browns. However, Adams still cranked out 79 tackles -- the third-highest mark of his career -- and notched another pair of forced fumbles to boot. Since his skills in coverage might be at a lesser level than that of his in the run game at this stage of his career, it makes sense for Adams to plug in at strong safety with the Panthers, where he'll get to play closer to the line of scrimmage. In turn, Kurt Coleman will be able to move back to his natural free safety position.

Panthers' Mike Adams: Heading to Carolina
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams signed a two-year contract with the Panthers on Friday, Bryan Strickland of the team's official site reports.

Adams has made the Pro Bowl two of the past three years, averaging 80 tackles per season in the process. It seems likely that he'll start alongside Kurt Coleman, who has the most interceptions in the NFC over the past two seasons. At 35, it's unknown how much Adams has left in the tank, but if the past few seasons serve as any indication, it doesn't seem like he'll be slowing down anytime soon.

Mike Adams: Won't return to Colts in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams, an unrestricted free agent, will not return to the Colts in 2017, Zak Keefer of the Indy Star reports.

The Colts are attempting to get younger on the defensive side of the ball, and Adams, who turns 36 this offseason, is not part of their plans. During his three years in Indianapolis, the veteran safety started 44 games and racked up 241 tackles, seven forced fumbles, and 12 interceptions. He looked to have plenty left in the tank last year and should be able to land a new contract this offseason, should he decide to continue his playing career.

Colts' Mike Adams: Returns to full practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams (groin) was a full participant in Thursday's practice.

He missed Indy's win over Green Bay in Week 9, but he looks set to return and start at safety this week against the Titans.

November 16, 2016 05:00 PM
Colts' Mike Adams: Returns to practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams (groin) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

He missed Indy's win over Green Bay in Week 9, but it looks like he could return this week after getting rest during the Colts' Week 10 bye.

November 4, 2016 09:13 PM
Colts' Mike Adams: Ruled out Week 9
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adams (groin) will not play Sunday against the Packers, Stephen Holder of the Indy Star reports.

Adams sustained a considerably serious groin injury last week against the Chiefs and couldn't practice with his teammates this week. Look for rookie T.J. Green to see additional playing time in Adams' absence.
