Adams previously tried out for the Seahawks, but didn’t receive a contract from Seattle. The plan was reportedly for him to tryout for the Redskins if he didn’t sign last weekend, so this doesn’t come as much of a surprise.

Adams, 23, wound up going undrafted on Saturday and is currently among the more notable rookie free agents. It’s actually a little surprising that he’s being forced to try out for teams, but these are both interesting options for him.

In 2015, Adams totaled 2,643 yards passing while completing 64.9 percent of his passes to go along with 26 touchdowns and six interceptions for Oregon. He also contributed 147 yards rushing and rushing two touchdowns.
