Jets Sign T Jeff Adams

Jets looking to beef up their O-line with another player

The Jets signed offensive tackle Jeff Adams to the team.

Adam's career hasn't been one to remember. The Jets is the sixth team that he has played for in six seasons, although technically Adams is considered a fourth-year NFL player.

Adams started his career as an undrafted free agent from Columbia. He then signed with the Dallas Cowboys, but got waived in late August. Adams spent the 2012 season on the Bengals and Dolphins practice squad and 2013 on the Titans practice squad.

It wasn't until he signed in Houston in 2014 that Adams got some playing time. In two years with the Texans, he played four games and started two.  The Texans moved Adams to the left guard position, but he suffered an injury to his right ankle was put on the Injured Reserve list. He ended the 2016 season on the Texans' practice squad.

By signing Adams, the Jets hope to add some depth to their veteran offensive line that saw four starters end the season on the Injured Reserve list, including Ryan Clady, Nick Mangold, Breno Giacomini, and Brian Winters.
