Bucs to Sign Safety


With Chris Conte on IR, the Bucs will need to add safety help to the secondary.

Rookie Jordan Whitehead has seen some action this year, playing in 2 games, recording 8 tackles, no passes defended, and with the injury to Isaiah Johnson, the Bucs will need to add some depth to the safety position.

The Buccaneers are signing former Giants safety, Adam Andrews. Andrews was signed by the Giants in 2016 as an undrafted free agent.

The safety was entering into his final year of his 3-year $1.62 million contract when he was released by the team, during the 53-man roster trimming.

Adams played in 30 games for the Giants, started 17, recording 7 passes defended, 1 interception, 1 forced fumble, and 58 tackles.

Adams will look to become starting safety in Conte’s absence.
