Houston Texans sign Mike Adams to bolster safety group
The Houston Texans have added former Pro Bowl safety Mike Adams to strengthen their depth in the secondary.
According to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle, the Houston Texans have signed safety Mike Adams to their 53 man roster. Adams was a Pro Bowl safety for the Indianapolis Colts in the 2014 and 2015 seasons. Undrafted in 2004, Adams will be joining his sixth team in Houston.
It was reported last week by Wilson that Adams was one of four safeties that were brought in for a workout by the Texans. Adams’ addition to the roster will be a great move as another veteran in the locker room, and a knowledgeable safety that can be a mentor to the younger players in the secondary.
Adams will be entering his 16th season in the league and has started in 149 games of the 222 appearances since 2004. He has 996 tackles, 90 pass deflections, 30 interceptions, 13 forced fumbles, and 16 fumble recoveries.
Texans safety group will now consist of Justin Reid, Tashaun Gipson, Jahleel Addae, A.J. Moore, and Adams. At 38 years of age, Adams is at the twilight of his career and likely won’t see a lot of playing time barring any injury. However, his addition will be a welcomed sight after the Texans went with only four safeties for the first four games of the regular season.
Texans addressed the backend of the roster and added another defensive back to a struggling secondary. Houston will now have to make a corresponding move with the addition of Adams to the roster for Week 5.
