According to Anthony Adams’ agent Joel Segal, the Bears have informed the veteran defensive tackle (31) that he will be released with one year remaining on his deal.
Word came while Adams and his family were on vacation.
While the news was sure to sting a little, by informing Adams when they did, the Bears give him and his agent two and a half weeks on the market prior to the start of free agency.
Adams spent roughly 75% of his 2011 season on the bench, while Matt Toeaina (27) and Stephen Paea performed well is his place.
24 year-old Amobi Okoye also showed some flashes last season, and the Bears will look to re-sign the free agent this year.
Adams spent five seasons with the Bears and performed well, while being credited as an inside force against the run.
Adams will certainly be missed by the fans and even more so by his teammates. Fellow DT Matt Toeaina tweeted this to his teammate shortly following the news: “Jealous of the next locker room you go to, bro.”
