Browns roster moves: Kendrick Adams signed to practice squad

Crystal Logiudice-US PRESSWIRE

The Cleveland Browns added depth on their defensive line on Thursday by signing defensive end Kendrick Adams to their practice squad.

An undrafted rookie who played at Louisiana State, defensive end Kendrick Adams was added to the Cleveland Browns' practice squad on Thursday, according to an official release by the team.

Unable to find a role with Jacksonville as a rookie free agent signing shortly after the draft, Adams went on to spend time on the practice squads for Detroit and Tampa Bay earlier this season. A two-year starter with LSU after transferring from a local community college before the 2009 campaign, Adams has still yet to play an NFL down in his brief career.

A 252-pound pass rusher who measured in significantly shorter at his collegiate Pro Day than many scouts anticipated, Adams features quick speed off the edge and a nose for shutting down opposing ball carriers. He has yet to be handed a true opportunity at the NFL level and could be an intriguing option for head coach Pat Shurmur's defense over the final three weeks of the year.
