Some news outside of the NFL Combine was announced on Sunday as Greg Auman reports that the Bucs have decided that they will not tender Andrew Adams, making him an unrestricted free agent.
After getting cut by the Giants on September 1st, the Bucs picked up Adams on September 26th to fill some depth in the secondary after an injury to Chris Conte. Adams went on to have a promising first season in Tampa Bay, leading the team with four interceptions, while also adding nine pass breakups, 38 tackles, and four starts in 13 games.
Adams played an important hybrid role of both safety and linebacker in the Bucs defensive system. With the Bucs having only $16 million on the salary cap, they will have a number of roster moves to make in order to clear some more space. There is still a chance they can bring him back, but it would be for less than the $2.05 million that he would have made on his tender.
Bucs safety Andrew Adams, 26, now becomes an unrestricted free agent, joining long list from 2018 Bucs.
