The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have re-signed safety Andrew Adams, who led the team in interceptions with four last year, including a career-high three against Carolina in a 24-17 victory last December at Raymond James Stadium. Adams was signed in-season last year due to injuries at the safety position and that’s the case once again as his arrival coincides with the team putting Justin Evans on injured reserve with a foot injury.
Adams was a restricted free agent this past offseason, but was not tendered an offer by Tampa Bay. Instead, he was signed by Detroit, but didn’t make the Lions’ 53-man roster.
In addition to his four interceptions last year, Adams had nine pass breakups and 38 tackles as a part-time starter in Tampa Bay’s secondary, playing in 13 games. The 5-foot-11, 205-pound Adams played two seasons with the New York Giants (2016-17) to begin his NFL career.
