Could the Browns be Interested in Veteran S Mike Adams?

Bob Levey

The Cleveland Browns' roster currently sits at 89 players, and it's a bit of a surprise that they didn't utilize that final roster spot for the team's three-day minicamp this week. Nonetheless, they have room to sign one more player to their roster before the start of training camp. Could that spot end up going to a familiar face...like veteran safety Mike Adams?

Adams was not re-signed by the Denver Broncos this offseason, the team he played with from 2012-2014. Prior to that, Adams was a member of the Browns from 2007-2011. Entering his 12th NFL season, Adams was on SiriusXM Sports the other day, where he talked about which teams had shown an interest in him. One of those teams was the Browns:

Q: "What are the prospects for you this season?"

Mike Adams: "My agent was just telling me -- San Francisco, Cleveland, Jets, and Patriots. Hopefully I can land a spot; all I need is another opportunity. [Regarding Denver] I think the door has closed [on a return]. They brought a lot of good players in. Not that I couldn't play there. I actually thought I was going to stay to bring that veteran leadership. I mentored T.J. Ward in Cleveland, but I guess it didn't work out, so you've got to move on. This is as long as I've ever waited to get signed, so the anxiety is starting to pick up now."

The Browns have needed a backup veteran safety ever since Adams' departure. If Donte Whitner and Tashaun Gipson start this year, the candidates to back them up include Jordan Poyer, Josh Aubrey, and Johnson Bademosi. Combined, the trio has very little NFL experience.

What do you think, Browns fans? Would you be in favor of the Browns signing Adams on a veteran minimum deal?
