The signing of Andrew Adams went under the radar last spring. The Detroit Lions went on a spending spree that featured the additions of defensive end Trey Flowers and cornerback Justin Coleman, and the addition of the safety managed to slip between the cracks.

Adam’s has made his presence known recently though, and ESPN’s Michael Rothstein has taken noticed. Rothstein named Adam’s as the team’s training camp MVP on Tuesday, as ESPN beat writers from around the league named a training camp MVP from each team around the league.

Rothstein cites Adam’s ability to generate turnovers, saying:

The Lions signed Adams to a one-year deal this offseason primarily due to his knack for forcing turnovers. And that’s all he’s done during training camp, intercepting at least four passes.

  • Lions rookie safety Will Harris scored his first ever NFL touchdown in the team’s Week 2 game against the Houston Texans last weekend, and as the Lions’ official PR Twitter account points out, it’s the first fumble return for a touchdown anyone has scored this preseason.

  • PFF Fantasy Football listed the most efficient wide receivers on a per route run basis, and former Lions receiver TJ Jones, who recently signed with the New York Giants, came in second.
