Yes, he's the first...the NFLPA apparently has had an issue with language in the Vikings' contracts, so the rookies have been advised not to sign the deals. I don't know if they've revised the language at all, or if Adams just didn't really care about it enough to stop him from signing it.

Zimmer: You know, he makes a lot of plays, catches the ball good, runs good. He has got good quickness in and out of breaks. He does not seem to be making very many mistakes.

Adams: You dont appreciate something until its fully gone. My mom [killed in a car wreck his freshman year of college] wanted to see me graduate from college. She wanted me to make the NFL. She wanted me to play on Sundays. I checked my little boxes. When the phone rang and it was the Vikings calling, the dream was still alive. Im still here. Now Ive got to work extra hard to play on Sundays and keep my family close.

Adams majored in public health because his mother was a social worker. Studying third-world disease and famine overwhelmed and motivated him to try to make a difference. Before he secured a lucrative contract, Adams vowed to raise $3,000 at the Scouting Combine to fund a one-week counseling retreat for children and teenagers who have suffered the death of a parent, sibling or primary caregiver.
