The Browns announced the re-signing of safety Mike Adams, who agreed to a three-year deal Thursday night.
“Mike Adams possesses the characteristics we believe in and brings versatility to the back end of the defense,” general manager George Kokinis said in a statement. “We are pleased he is coming back to Cleveland.”
With the Browns for the past two years, Adams has started only five times in his 29 games played, but would be the first candidate to take over for strong safety Sean Jones if he signs with the Philadelphia Eagles. Jones is visiting Philadelphia Friday and will be available to the media at 3 p.m., which would indicate his perceived importance to the Eagles. They lost safety Brian Dawkins to the Denver Broncos in free agency.
Adams made the San Francisco 49ers in 2004 as a undrafted free agent from Delaware.
