Sam Adams on tap

June 4, 2007

The NFL’s new alcohol policy has not stopped Mike Shanahan from ordering more Sam Adams…. 

Broncos have signed yet another veteran to their team.  This time it’s defensive tackle Sam Adams

Adams turns 34 this month, and after working for five other NFL teams, the 6′ 4″, 340lbs Adams gives Denver the big player in the middle of it’s D-line that Jim Bates likes. 

“Adams is a proven defender versus the run, a mammoth inside presence who regularly commands double-team blocking, and who can engulf offensive linemen. A classic two-gap player, he rarely registers impressive tackle numbers, but his value has never been measured by statistics. By typically occupying two blockers on running downs, he usually allows other defenders to flow to the football.”
