Tabor, 23, was drafted by the Lions in the second round out of Florida in 2017. He signed a four-year, $4.82 million rookie contract with $2.79 million guaranteed.

In 2018, Tabor appeared in 12 games for the Lions, recording 28 total tackles, no interceptions and no pass defenses. 

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 at the end of September. However, Tampa Bay declined to tender him a restricted offer, allowing him to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

Adams signed with the Lions on a one-year deal for the 2019 season.

In 2018, Adams appeared in 13 games for the Bucs and recorded 38 total tackles, four interceptions, and nine pass defenses.
