This. His skillset has always translated best to a Mark Barron-esque box safety/hybrid linebacker. I agree that the Love signing is both a health hedge and a sign that they want to employ a Big Nickle with all three safeties on the field. I know it feels like a lifetime ago, but the Hawks were running a TON of Big Nickle in the Broncos game. It was looking effective too. Adams was spying and blitzing Russ from the box like a mad man.
I know nobody wants to hear this, but I think we're financially tied to Adams for at least another season. Cutting him now with the post June 1st designation cuts his dead money considerably this year, but it doesn't make the hit disappear. It just pushes it to next season, and then yall will be kvetching about us not having any for important FA's next year.
