As a rookie out of South Florida, Adams was seen as a multi-faceted athlete that could replace All-Pro kick returner Cordarrelle Patterson. However, fumble issues in the preseason doomed his opportunity to handle kick return duties. The 23 year-old ultimately lost the job to running back Jerick McKinnon. Still, the wide receiver made the Vikings 53-man roster out of training camp.
Adams remained on the 53-man roster until Week 9. Adams was waived on October 31st when the Vikings claimed RB Mack Brown. He was signed to the practice squad soon after his release and remained there the rest of the season. Adams was active for one game this season (Week 8 vs. Browns) but did not see any game action.
The departure of Adams leaves the Vikings with receivers Adam Thielen, Stefon Diggs, Jarius Wright, Laquon Treadwell, Stacy Coley, Cayleb Jobes (futures deal), and Brandon Zylstra (futures deal) under contract for 2018.
