Tyrell Adams would round out the Jacksonville Jaguars’ linebacker corps.
Had defensive end J.J. Watt not signed with the Arizona Cardinals this offseason, he would’ve been the best Houston Texans player available in the free agency. With the former All-Pro off the market, the number of Texans’ playmakers who are scheduled to test free agency will be limited.
The Jaguars could pursue wide receiver Will Fuller V in the open market, but he comes with injury red flags and will probably command premium compensation. On the other hand, Tyrell Adams could be a solid addition to their linebacker corps. This Jacksonville already has a couple of studs in Myles Jack and Joe Schobert but are in need of another linebacker to round out the unit.
Adams appeared in all 16 games, with 12 starts, last season. He played 73 percent of the Texan’s total snaps on defense and logged 125 total tackles (five for a loss), two sacks, four passes defensed, and two forced fumbles. With Lavonte David and Matt Milano off the market, Adams will be a free-agent option at linebacker in case the Jags aren’t interested in signing K.J. Wright or Denzell Perryman.
