“Thank you football for everything,” Adams wrote. “I have put much thought into this decision and it is time for me to retire from the game that has given me so much…I will always be a [University of Washington] dawg! And thank you to the Buffalo Bills for believing in me. And to every teammate I’ve had, Thank you for being my brothers and I will never forget the long practices, conditioning and locker room talk. Love you boys.”
The UW product suffered a torn ACL in 2017 and missed much of 2018 with back trouble. Before that, Adams earned a first-team All-Pac-12 nod and second-team All-American honors in 2016. When he turned pro last year, the 6’7″, 304-pound blocker went undrafted and landed on the Bills’ practice squad.
The Bills won’t have Adams in camp, but they will have a few new blockers to consider for their Week 1 roster, including former Chargers lineman Forrest Lamp.
