The New York Giants have secured linebacker Matthew Adams, enhancing both their outside linebacker rotation and notably, their special teams squad.

Adams, standing at 6 feet tall and weighing 230 pounds, was originally drafted by the Indianapolis Colts in the seventh round of the 2018 NFL Draft, following his college tenure at the University of Houston, where he earned recognition on the American Athletic Conference All-Academic Team.

During his tenure with the Colts spanning four seasons, Adams appeared in 58 games, starting nine, and amassed 55 tackles. Following his time with the Colts, he spent one season each with the Chicago Bears and most recently, the Cleveland Browns.

At 28 years old, Adams’ career statistics include 98 tackles, eight tackles for loss, two forced fumbles, and a fumble recovery. Beyond his defensive contributions, he has been a significant contributor on special teams, participating in 435 special team snaps last season for the Browns, where he forced a fumble against the Jets in Week 17.

In the 2023 season, Adams concluded his tenure with the Browns as the team’s leader in special teams tackles, registering a career-best ten special teams tackles (seven solo) along with the aforementioned forced fumble.
