Reports: Eagles to Sign Safety Andrew Adams
The Philadelphia Eagles have finally added a piece in free agency.
Andrew Adams, a safety who has spent three seasons with the Super Bowl Champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers, will be joining a very thin Philadelphia secondary according to multiple reports, including Zach Berman of The Athletic.
The news of Adams coming to Philadelphia certainly makes sense, with the team losing Jalen Mills, and the uncertainly of Rodney McLeod, the team needs more depth at the safety position. Adams will help out on special teams, filling the role of Rudy Ford, who signed with Jacksonville.
Adams went undrafted out of Connecticut in 2016, but has started 32 in five seasons. He has six interceptions, 19 passes defensed and two forced fumble in his four seasons as a pro. He will be 28 years old during the 2021 season.
With the reported addition of Adams, the Eagles add a safety to compete for playing time with a very young group. Marcus Epps, K'Von Wallace and McLeod are the only three safeties on the current roster.
Prior to the news about Adams, little about the Eagles had come about, other than the news that they might be interested in trading for quarterback Deshaun Watson.
