The Rundown

The Texans claimed @Jeff Adams from the Tennessee Titans prior to the 2014 season as a raw offensive tackle. The Texans used Adams his first year as a 7th offensive lineman to help at the tight end position. Appearing in four games with the Texans, Adams had his ups and down but some of that came from the team playing him out of position at guard. He finally had his chance to move to tackle but had a non-contact injury on a pass set which ended his season. 

Outlook

 Adams is a viable option at one of the tackle positions but the Texans made a mistake putting him at guard last season. At 6’7”,  he is built for the tackle position and not the interior of the offensive line. He is an athletic player for his size and the Texans need to give him chance to succeed at a position he can play. 

Roster Situation: Adams needs more time to recover from his patellar knee injury from last season before he is ready to prepare for the 2016 season. If he can get healthy in time for camp, he will be pushing for one of the tackle positions on the 53-man roster.
