Free Agent T Jeff Adams Signs with Jets

Green & White Are His 6th NFL Team in 6 Seasons After He Played 4 Years at Columbia in NYC


The Jets have signed free agent tackle Jeff Adams.

Adams (6'7", 305) will be considered a fourth-year NFL player when the new league year begins, but 2017 will be his sixth season in the league and the Jets are the sixth team he's spent time with.

He began his pro career as an undrafted free agent out of Columbia with Dallas, was waived by the Cowboys in late August, then signed on with the Cincinnati and Miami practice squads in 2012 and the Titans' practice squad in '13.

Adams was acquired on waivers by Houston in early 2014 and finally got some playing time with the Texans — four games and two starts in 2014-15 combined. He began 2015 as the LG starter but injured his right knee and spent the rest of the season on Injured Reserve. He ended this past season on the Texans' practice squad.

Although he grew up in Illinois, Adams is now back in the area where he went to college, after playing four seasons for the Ivy League's Lions.
