Jeff Adams To Return To The Houston Texans

The Houston Texans have re-signed offensive tackle Jeff Adams for the 2016 season.

The Houston Texans are bringing back ERFA tackle, Jeff Adams, on a one-year, $600,000 deal. Adams was lost for the 2015 season to the injured reserve, when he tore his patellar tendon in week two against the Carolina Panthers, working to slow the pass rush. The injury came at a pivotal time for the team’s offensive line, which had been struggling with depth already due to a number of injuries to starters and backups. Adams had just been moved from temporarily filling a hole at left guard, back to his natural position of right tackle, and was noticeably more effective at that right tackle spot. 

Adams was claimed by the Texans from the Tennessee Titans prior to the start of the 2014 season and went into 2015 expected to claim the role of the Texans swing tackle. The move stablizes the Texans offensive line as it is determined whether other, higher profile, key pieces of the line come back for 2016.
