Adams appeared in 33 games over the course of his GT career between 2016 and 2018. He was having a tremendous year in terms of stats too this past season … 24 tackles, five tackles for loss and 2 forced fumbles in the 13 games played.
Tons of tributes were pouring in Sunday, with many people describing Adams as a “gentle giant” off the field.
He was only 21 years old. RIP
