Lions release Kendrick Adams from practice squad

Crystal Logiudice-US PRESSWIRE

Detroit cleared some room on its practice squad on Tuesday by releasing Kendrick Adams.

The Detroit Lions cut defensive end Kendrick Adams from their practice squad on Tuesday, opening up a spot that they have yet to fill. Adams was signed to Detroit's practice squad on Oct. 24 after the team placed cornerback Lionel Smith on injured reserve.

Adams was an undrafted free agent out of LSU in 2012, and he first caught on with the Jacksonville Jaguars. He parted ways with the Jaguars soon thereafter and joined the Tampa Bay Buccaneers before being scooped up by the Lions. Adams signed with Auburn out of high school but attended community college in Mississippi before joining LSU for his junior and senior seasons. At LSU, he started 23 of the 25 games he appeared in, making 49 tackles, nine tackles for a loss and four sacks.

Detroit has been middle of the pack as a pass-rushing team this year, amassing 30 sacks in 13 games. The team could use an infusion of youth at the end position, but Adams is apparently not the man to fill that role.
