The Tennessee Titans are signing safety Andrew Adams from the Pittsburgh Steelers practice squad, according to a report by Aaron Wilson of Pro Football Network.
Adams, 28, joined the Steelers’ practice squad on Sept. 5 after having been with the New York Giants during training camp. He was not called up to the active roster for either of the first two Steelers games.
A six-year NFL veteran, Adams has played in 87 career games with the New York Giants and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He won Super Bowl LV with the Bucs after the 2020 season. Adams has tallied 175 career tackles, seven interceptions, 23 passes defended, six tackles for loss and two forced fumbles over his career.
He has also spent time on the roster of the Detroit Lions and Philadelphia Eagles. He has had two stints with the Bucs and three with the Giants. A Fayetteville, Georgia native, Adams went undrafted out of UConn in 2016, first catching on with the Giants.
The Steelers also have Elijah Riley on their practice squad at safety, and Damontae Kazee is expected to return from the injured reserve list at some point this season.
The Steelers and Titans have had a little roster back and forth going for a few weeks. Pittsburgh just recently signed outside linebacker David Anenih from the Titans’ practice squad, not more than a few days after Tennessee claimed outside linebacker Derrek Tuszka off waivers from Pittsburgh. The teams use a similar base 3-4 defense. Titans head coach Mike Vrabel played outside linebacker for the Steelers. Tennessee signed former Steelers outside linebackers Bud Dupree and Ola Adeniyi as free agents after the 2020 season.
