Keion Adams is a late-round pick a lot of Steelers fans were excited about last season. But after his rookie year took a turn for the worst following a preseason injury, Adams spent the year on IR, waiting for his chance to see the field.
2018 is the first time we’ll get to see Adams in a regular season game. From everything people saw last year, he could be an answer for poor quarterback pressure on the outside. Not that he’ll get the start over Bud Dupree, but he’ll benefit the outside guys by adding depth to the edge.
Adams is an exciting guy to see back on the field. He isn’t a lock to make the final roster, yet, but should be a favorite to get a spot. If he does, he’ll get playing time throughout the season, and could even work his way next to Anthony Chickillo in the depth chart.
