Under terms of the NFL rookie wage scale, per Spotrac, the total value of Adams’ rookie deal is $22.6 million with a $14.3 million signing bonus.
Alongside second round pick Marcus Maye, Adams has the chance to not only turn out the best defensive rookie performance in 2017, but be one-half of the best safety duo in the NFL. That’s how good the LSU product is, can be.
Adams was selected No. 6 in last spring’s 2017 NFL Draft.
