The New York Giants have signed safety Andrew Adams.
Andrew Adams started his career with the Giants after going undrafted in 2016. In his two years with New York, Adams appeared in 30 games, cracking the starting lineup in 17 of them. Adams then joined the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, where he has spent his past four seasons. Adams will provide much needed depth to the back-end of the Giants secondary.
Tampa Bay backup safety Andrew Adams managed to pick off Cam Newton three times in the win Sunday. Those were his highlights as he only contributed one tackle, but was credited with three more passes defended. It was pleasant surprise rookie safety Jordan Whitehead who received yet another opportunity with Justin Evans (toe) missing half the contest. Whitehead led the secondary in tackles with seven combined.
IDP is sometimes about the opportunity. Both these players took advantage of that for their IDP owners this week and Whitehead has been quite the find for Tampa Bay so far. For the rest of the season, it is likely Whitehead who could hold the upside for fantasy owners. The secondary is reportedly beaten up after this contest and Whiteheads getting the job done.
Giants.com writer John Schmeelk predicts safety Andrew Adams to win the starting spot next to Landon Collins.
Schmeelk takes the prediction one step further picking Adams to lead the team in interceptions as well. "Whoever wins that job has the best chance of leading the team in interceptions, much like Antoine Bethea did for Arizona last year," Schmeelk writes. Adams started four games in 2017 and did not register an interception.
