Adams was released by the Ravens on Saturday, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athleticreports.
Analysis: The transaction means the Ravens have just two tight ends on their active roster -- a surprisingly total given the team's extra reliance on the position.

Adams was signed to Houston's practice squad Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

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.
