An Opening For “Tough Guy” Michael AdamsJuly 20th, 2013
The ditching of ”cancer” Eric Wright swing opens a door for veteran cornerback Michael Adams, who the Bucs signed a month ago. (“Cancer” is what former Bucs tight end and Buccaneers Radio Network analyst Anthony Becht called Wright yesterday.)
Becht was a 2009 teammate of Adams on the Arizona Cardinals and offered a solid endorsement of him on WDAE-AM 620 following the Wright trade Friday.
“I’m not saying he’s the savior by any means. But he’s physical, he’s a small guy who’ll come up and tackle you. He’ll get in your face. He’s rowdy,” Becht said of Adams.
“He’s not a stellar press cover corner, but he’s a tough guy who can come in and, you know, be moved around in different positions.”
Adams is listed at 5-8, 181 pounds, and Joe’s seen reports that he’s smaller than that. Adams is known as a durable special teams ace. He made seven starts at corner in six years with the Cardinals.
Becht went on to say the Bucs’ depth at cornerback and across the team is troublesome, and he said the Bucs “failed on that move,” regarding retaining Eric Wright in the spring and counting on him for 2013.
