The Denver Broncos on Thursday traded wide receiver Charlie Adams to the Dallas Cowboys in exchange for an undisclosed pick in the 2007 NFL Draft.
Adams (6-foot-2, 190 pounds) is in his fourth NFL season and appeared on the Broncos' active roster in each of the last three years after competing on the club's practice squad in 2002 as a rookie. In 24 career games (2 starts), he has totaled 21 receptions for 203 yards (9.7 avg.) along with 18 punt returns for 175 yards (9.7 avg.) and 10 kickoff returns for 218 yards (21.8 avg.).
Adams entered the NFL with Denver in 2002 as a college free agent from Hofstra University.
Because of the injuries at the receiver position that Dallas is going through currently, the looked to get some backup help. Adams is a possession receiver with good hands who could fit in as a No.4 or No.5 receiver.
Adams would have had a hard time making the final roster due to the emergence of third-year WR Darius Watts and rookie WR Brandon Marshall.
