The Denver Broncos defensive line over the past two seasons has had that Cleveland Browns feel to it, but that is slowly changing and will change more today when the team finishes up a deal to bring in DE Sam Adams. The Denver Post is reporting that Adams will sign a one-year deal today barring any issues. He comes to the team after playing with six other teams, the most recent being the Bengals, who cut him.
Adams, at 6-foot-4, 340 pounds, will give the Broncos help on the D-Line asap. New assistant head coach Jim Bates loves big DT’s, and Adams fills a hole that the team was worried about. They tried to snag Dan Wilkinson from the Dolphins back in early March, but that trade was voided when “Big Daddy” never reported to the team.
The Denver D-line has added another former Brown this past offseason in Alvin McKinley, and they drafted Florida DT Marcus Thomas in the 4th round. Adams should be a starter on the line, alongside another former Brown, Gerard Warren, who came to the team two seasons ago.
Adams started his career with the Seahawks, and was the 8th overall pick in the 1994 draft. He has made the Pro Bowl three times, but the last was 2004. He has 44 sacks in 13 seasons.
