The Saints signed Adams to the practice squad Thursday, Katherine Terrell of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Adams appeared in one game with the Texans this season then spent time on the team's practice squad.

Jerell Adams: Nabs roster spot

Adams made the Texans roster, becoming the fourth tight end on the depth chart.

Analysis: As of now, the Texans are opting to keep five tight ends with Kahale Warring (concussion) likely headed to the injured reserve list. Adams caught a pair of touchdowns during preseason and is in a crowded position group that includes 2018 draft picks Jordan Akins and Jordan Thomas, along with veteran Darren Fells, considered the best blocker of the bunch.

Adams caught three passes for 17 yards and a touchdown in the Texans' preseason-opening loss to the Packers.

Analysis: Adams is one of five tight ends in camp competing for what is expected to be three roster spots. With both Jordan Thomas and Kahale Warring nursing hamstring injuries, he could get increased looks during the second preseason contest Saturday against the Lions and submit more evidence that he belongs on the finalized roster for Week 1 of the regular season.
