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