Not really sure what to think about this. He played well in limited action, in meaningless games, but how is he going to play as a starter, in meaningful games?

Oh, and can we please draft Dee Milliner.

I really doubt that we go into the season with Adams as the starter. Especially with this draft being so deep at that position.

No reason to expect he's being looked at as a starter. I think his bare minimum contract is evidence enough that they're not looking to him to be the savior of the CB corps.

I certainly hope not. We've build defenses from the outside in for far too long. Al's gone, and with him, hopefully, the bass ackwards approach to building a defense.

Love how Reggie tweaked this, instead of tendering him he knew there wouldn't be much of a market for him and signed him for the min...solid move, Reg...

FYI, I really like Adams he has very good ball skills, just has to stat healthy...

Was just looking at some highlights where he picked off a pass from Weeden when they played Cleveland.

I can see how he would get a concussion because Ross NAILED him right in the head as he was laid out for the pick.

I don't see him as being concussion prone as opposed to having been unlucky enough to be in the path of a missle.

Yeah Ross is a flipping moron. So is Francies IIRC. Adams got his clock cleaned by a teammate on a return once too. Blithering idiots.

I can't see how they think coming in late is a good idea. Especially when they can see their teammate has the ball in hand. Jeez.

You don't think he was trying to get over to break up the play? It happens, not sure why anyone would call Ross a moron. He did nothing wrong IMO.

In my opinion they are a joke. In the last ten years there drafts sucked.

I wouldn't go so far as calling him a moron. But there is a time to let up. There was plenty of time so see that Adams made the play.

It's April. There is the draft and a 2nd wave of FA before the season starts.
