Adams, 26, signed a three-year, $1.62 million contract with the Giants as an undrafted free agent out of Connecticut back in 2016. He was entering the final year of his contract in 2018 when New York elected to waive him as they trimmed their roster down to the 53-man limit coming out of the preseason.
Adams later signed with the Buccaneers but was not tendered a restricted offer last year. He later caught on with the Lions, but was once again released that the start of the season.
Adams returned to the Buccaneers and finished out the season in Tampa Bay.
In 2019, Adams appeared in 14 games for the Buccaneers and recorded 45 tackles, one interception, a forced fumble and three passes defended.
