2021 NFL Free Agency: Former Houston Texans linebacker Tyrell Adams visiting Buffalo Bills

Matt Warren is Associate Director of NFL coverage for SB Nation and previously covered the Bills for Buffalo Rumblings for more than a decade.

The Buffalo Bills are continuing to look to add depth to their roster and late Tuesday it was reported that the team is hosting former Houston Texans linebacker Tyrell Adams on a free-agent visit. The report comes from ESPN’s Field Yates. Adams was briefly claimed off waivers by the Bills in 2017 but failed his physical.

Adams would be an upgrade over any depth linebacker on the Bills’ roster, at least in terms of experience, but he’s a clear one-year wonder. He started 12 games for the Texans in 2020 and finished with 125 tackles, four passes defended, two sacks, two forced fumbles, and a fumble recovery. Prior to breaking into the starting lineup a year ago, his playing time was very limited. He played five games in 2019 (starting two), four games in 2018, six games in 2017 for the Oakland Raiders, and six games in 2016 for Oakland. He’s also been with the Seattle Seahawks, Kansas City Chiefs, Indianapolis Colts, and San Francisco 49ers without seeing the field in regular-season games.

Adams is a former undrafted free agent from 2015 after finishing his college career at Division II West Georgia.
