Andrew Adams. 4. player. 48. . .

Andrew Adams is one of those familiar faces the Eagles tend to fall in love with.

Here’s someone we already know, Andrew Adams. He’s on the list for several reasons.

One is this. Unless we’re interested in guys who are coming off of foot injuries and will be 35 when the season starts (Jason McCourty) or we want to kick the tires on another former Eagle that didn’t work out (Andrew Sendejo), your best options include Adams and a former Dallas Cowboy.

Heaven knows we don’t want any more of those!

Adams spent five months of the calendar year with Philly in 2021. One of their free-agent signings in March, he hung around until he was waived on August 31st. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers picked him up, his third run with the team if we’re not mistaken, but he’s back in the pool of available free agents.

Here’s another reason to jot Adams’ name down if you haven’t already. We all know the Birds, when in a pinch, call guys they know first. Having spent some time around Jonathan Gannon and company already, he figures to spend minimal time reacclimating himself to this team’s plan on defense.

The question is are the Birds even interested? Remember, he wasn’t good enough to make last year’s roster.
