Rodney Adams: Waived without injury designation
The Jets waived Adams (illness) without an injury designation Friday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.
Adams ended the 2022 campaign on the reserve/non-football illness list, but he appears to be healthy heading into the summer. The 2017 fifth-round pick has appeared in just one NFL contest (2021 with Chicago) and failed to haul in his lone target across nine offensive snaps. He'll likely have to settle for a practice-squad gig in 2023 if he hopes to keep his NFL dreams alive.... See More ... See Less

Adams reverted to Chicago's practice squad Monday.

Rodney Adams: Sent to waivers
The Bears waived Adams on Wednesday, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Bears' Rodney Adams: Targeted four times
Adams caught three passes for 15 yards in the Bears' 27-24 preseason win over the Titans on Saturday.
With tight end Jesper Horsted being the only Chicago receiver with more than 19 yards, the 15 yards Adams posted was mostly due to Justin Fields throwing short passes during the first half. On his fourth target, Adams made a leaping catch, but replay overturned it. After showing solid chemistry with Fields in each preseason game, it would appear that Adams has a realistic chance of making the regular-season roster.... See More ... See Less
Bears' Rodney Adams: Another strong outing
Adams caught three passes for 89 yards and a touchdown in Chicago's 41-15 preseason loss to the Bills on Saturday.
Adams made an adjustment on an underthrown pass from Andy Dalton, snatching the ball off a defender's helmet, and after the defender fell, he ran unchallenged the rest of the way on a 73-yard touchdown. For the second week in a row, he led the team in receiving, as he's making a push to secure a roster spot, and the fact he was on the field with the first-unit offense seems to indicate that the team is taking a serious look at him. Should he make the team, he won't be facing an insurmountable depth chart behind Allen Robinson and Darnell Mooney, so it's possible his fantasy value could climb if he makes the regular-season roster....

Bears' Rodney Adams: Solid debut
Quarterback Justin Fields said that he and Adams "have had a great connection in training camp, and I trust him a lot," Adam Jahns of The Athletic reports.
Although Adams is battling for a roster spot, the 26-year-old led the Bears with four catches for 57 yards on six targets in the preseason opener. If he can build on his success, he's not facing a monumental climb up a depth chart that has many question marks after Allen Robinson and Darnell Mooney, but for now, his fantasy value cannot be fully determined until he plays more in the preseason....
