The Lions will host former Tampa Bay safety Andrew Adams on a free agent visit on Thursday, according to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press (Twitter link). Adams had four interceptions last season, but he did not receive a restricted free agent tender from the Bucs.

Adams played for Lions defensive coordinator Paul Pasqualoni at UConn, so he could be a natural fit in Detroit. The addition of Adams could also help replace Glover Quin, who was released in February.
Adams, a former undrafted free agent, compiled nine passes defended and 38 tackles in 2018, giving him his third-straight season with at least 30 tackles. On the flip side, he ultimately ranked 78th in Pro Football Focus‘ safety rankings, and he earned his worst score in three years.
One comment on “Lions To Host Andrew Adams”
I would love to see the full formula for grading a guy 78th for safeties with 4 picks, 9 pass deflects, and 38 tackles. On paper those stats seem better.
