Buccaneers sign Michael Adams

The Buccaneers have added another player to the mix at cornerback.

He doesn’t come with the expectations of Darrelle Revis or the promise of second-round pick Johnthan Banks, but Michael Adams will be heading to training camp with the team all the same. The Buccaneers announced Wednesday that they have signed the six-year veteran and waived guard Jeremy Lewis.

Adams has spent all six of those years with the Cardinals, playing in 74 games and starting seven times before playing a limited role on defense in Arizona last season. Adams has three interceptions over the course of his career.

With Revis, Banks and Eric Wright on hand, the Bucs won’t be looking for Adams to do too much for them on defense in the coming season. His experience is a nice thing to have should Banks or other young corners struggle to show they’re ready for roles on the defense, but that experience isn’t going to buy him more than a fighting chance to wind up on the 53-man roster come the end of the summer.

    Good on special teams but that’s about it. He’s small for a CB and plays like it.

    I think Michael Adams has a shot at making the team. The only thing we can do is wait & see.

    Solid player at any DB slot. Will miss his toughness in AZ.

    Adams is outstanding on special teams. If Bucs have a weakness in that area he will make the team on that basis alone. Cheap, great character, ST ace, the Bucs could do a lot worse for the, say, 50th man on the roster.

    Money Mike!

    Small guy, big heart. This guy will show up better on special teams than as a DB but there are few guys with as much heart in the league.
