  Texans | Sign Joe Adams     Fri Aug 1, 05:18 PM

The Houston Texans signed WR Joe Adams (Panthers) Friday, Aug. 1. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Adams is a quick/fast receiver/returner who had major hands problems earlier in his career after being drafted in the fourth round by the Panthers. He's probably just a camp body.

  Panthers | Wide receiver notes    Thu Jun 13, 01:25 PM

Carolina Panthers WRs Steve Smith and Brandon LaFell are locked in at the top two spots. Ted Ginn Jr. has stood out during minicamp, catching several deep passes from Cam Newton. Armanti Edwards looks more comfortable playing the position. Ginn and Edwards will compete with Kealoha Pilares, Joe Adams and David Gettis for roster spots and reps.

Footballguys view: Smith should be the star receiver he's been for years in 2013. His current ADP is WR28 (6.08) which makes him a good value. The bigger question mark is LaFell. He's got the size/speed combination to be an effective pro but has lacked consistency to his game. LaFell's current ADP is WR69 and he's coming off the board at 14.10 in 12 team PPR leagues.
