The Green Bay Packers have seen another one of their free agent players head out to a new team. After Jamaal Williams and Tim Boyle signed with the Detroit Lions, another veteran player is headed to a new city.

That player is defensive lineman Montravius Adams, whom the Packers selected in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft out of Auburn. Adams has reportedly signed with the New England Patriots on a one-year contract worth a maximum of $2.5 million.

Over his four-year tenure with the Packers, Adams largely disappointed relative to his draft status. He managed just 1.5 sacks in total, all coming in 2018, and played in just seven games as a rookie and eight in his final season in 2020. Although he was an athletic player and occasionally flashed at times, he never managed to put together a consistent performance and was generally one of the lightest-used members of the team’s defensive line rotation. Indeed, Adams played just 595 defensive snaps in four seasons, never exceeding 250 in any one season.

The Packers have re-signed just one of their unrestricted free agents so far, locking up Aaron Jones to a new four-year contract.
