Giants Roster Breakdown: Kendrick Adams, DE

Who is Kendrick Adams? Should you pay attention to him?

The New York Giants report for training camp on July 21, less than two months from now. Between now and then let's break down the 90-man roster the team will bring to training camp. With apologies to defensive end Kerry Wynn, we will go alphabetically. That means we start with another defensive end you might not know much about, Kendrick Adams of LSU.

2013 Season Review

Adams was waived by the Cleveland Browns at the end of training camp. He began his NFL career in 2012 when he signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars as an undrafted free agent. He was waived before the season. He did stints on the practice squads of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Detroit Lions in 2012.

2014 Season Outlook

Adams signed a reserve/futures contract in January. The 6-foot-5, 252-pound Adams has played both defensive end and linebacker, and the Giants are using him as a defensive end. He seems like little more than a camp body or a potential practice squad player, but you never know.

Below is a video of Adams playing for LSU.
