Whatever happened to Kris Adams? He was getting playing time earlier in the season and then sort of disappeared. I thought he was very raw, but that he could develop into a solid WR given the playing time/coaching. He was probably the one tall receiver we had, so he offered a little variety out there for the Colts. Was he hurt and I missed it?

 

I hope the Colts continue to develop him. I don't think he will ever be a star but I think he could turn out to a decent receiver for us if he only is given the opportunity.

I liked him as well. I think he was cut, though...

Hmm. That's what I didn't want to hear. Not that he was a world-beater by any means, but just seemed like he had potential.

I think it was a combination of his hands and route running not being very polished. Probably more importantly, since he was the fifth WR, he really had to be valuable on STs and didn't show it.

Apparently they still think he has potential though, he's listed as being on the PS. WR is one position where we have some depth, with Whalen and even Collie possibly making the team next season. I think Averyis gone.

Yeah, I noticed early on that he seemed to have trouble getting separation from defenders on his routes. But the guy is tall and is fast, which are two things you can't teach. Route running you can. But you are right about the STs, and that is probably why he sort of faded out. I am glad he is still on the practice squad and hope he can show something to the coaches.

Maybe they will work with him on the practice squad and get his routes down better. It sure would be nice to have a bigger target to catch jump balls, since we refuse to use Fleener for that. :(

Adams was cut from the active roster early in the season after and I can't remember what game it was, but he completely gave up on a pass that was thrown to him because he didn't think he could make the play, but if he would have kept running hard, it appeared like he could have easily made a play on it. After that happened, Adams was taken out of the game and cut afterwards. He was later added to the PS.

This is also what I remember happening.

I noticed he is listed as being on PS but I don't get how that is possible as the PS dissolves at the end of the season (after the last loss). The PS members are usually signed to future contracts. The fact that he was not signed tells me that he is either cut or not in the long term plans, at least as of now.   

 

Edit. I just looked up and Colts have signed 3 more to future contracts: Alvester Alexander, Kileeen and O linemen Ziemba. Adams is still on PS, maybe they have not made up their mind about him.

He sucked, so we cut him. The end.

Part of it was injuries to the OL. It was a numbers game with injuries to the OL that made him expendable. After the injuries the Colts added a cb and another wr. He was then added to the ps for development. His route running was bad. Hope ps has improved that area for him.

I agree that he just didn`t have much going other than size and speed.
He had the BALL SKILLS of C Vaughn! There has to be someone better to invest in. JMO

He looked decent in the preseason, but was know to have a case of the drops during camp. He also gave up on a route in one game.

I agree with those who think he has potential, but he'll probably get lost in the competition come next training camp IF he's even there.

I had high hopes for Adams and then he quit on that route, I even said he could be pretty good before the season started, doubt he is around long

It was the 1st Jags game. Our only home loss of the season

Adams has potential.

 

But we honestly didn't need another receiver on the active roster with guys like Wayne, Avery, Hilton, and Brazil.

 

I honestly don't see him staying next year.

I wish we had more big WRs.

 

Fact is, that is not BAs typical WR. He likes small WRs that can move down the field quickly. 

 

I like the WRs that we have now in Wayne, Avery, Hilton, and Brazil. They did drop passes but that will happen with new teammates. Avery and Hilton almost got 1,000 yards each.

I would hope that was why we got Fleener and Allen.
