Mike Adams, former Steelers and Bears offensive lineman, attempting comeback as tight end More SportsPulse: Trysta Krick says the NFL’s new policy on national anthem protests doesn’t help anyone but the owners. What do you do when your career stalls? Reinvent yourself. Former Pittsburgh Steelers and Chicago Bears offensive tackle Mike Adams has found the power of reinvention.
Adams — a second-round draft choice by the Steelers in 2012 — is attempting a position switch to tight end. Out of the NFL in 2017 and currently a free agent, Adams spent the time away from the game shedding weight and preparing for a permanent position switch from pass blocker to pass catcher.
Johnson opened up about a variety of topics in a 25-minute interview Saturday, including his Hall-of-Fame candidacy, his current business interests and his final days with the Lions.
His relationship with the team remains strained after he was forced to pay back a seven-figure portion of his signing bonus in retirement, but Johnson did not want to publicly discuss that or how the two sides might one day make amends.
More Over his seven seasons with the Atlanta Falcons, Julio Jones has turned into one of the better wide receivers in the NFL. Just don’t add kickball to his list of skills. Jones made an appearance at Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton’s fourth annual Kicking It With Cam,a massive charity kickball tournament benefitting the Cam Newton Foundation in Charlotte. He was just one of several players in attendance, joining NFL Hall of Famer Terrell Owens, Hornets big man Dwight Howard and multiple current Panthers players like Julius Peppers, Josh Norman, Greg Olsen, to name a few.
Though things didn’t go so smoothly when Jones went to actually kick the ball. Jones refused to comment to the Charlotte Observer’s Joseph Person, saying only that he was in town to support Newton. The reason for his silence, though, likely has little to do with his whiff on the kickball field and more to do with the fact that Jones was a no-show at the Falcons’ OTAs last month. Though after watching that video, it’s probably safe to say that Jones should stick to football.
