Reports had said that the Patriots were shopping Adams in trade talks so this isn’t a big surprise.
Adams, 26, is a former third-round pick of the Packers back in 2017. He’s finished his four-year, $3.26 million rookie contract and was testing the market as an unrestricted free agent.
He finished last season on the injured reserve due to a toe injury but was activated in February. The Patriots signed him to a one-year contract a month later.
In 2020, Adams appeared in eight games and recorded 11 tackles, two tackles for loss, and no sacks.
