With a Steelers win over the New York Jets on Sunday, Pittsburgh’s right tackle Flozell Adams, who spent 12 seasons with the Dallas Cowboys, will return to Cowboys Stadium in the most triumphant circumstances possible; namely, as a member of the AFC’s representative in the Super Bowl.
Adams was released by the Cowboys after the 2009 season as the longest tenured member of the team. The Steelers picked him up this offseason after a ruptured Achilles ended right tackle Willie Colon’s season before it could begin, and moved him to the right side, where he has flourished ever since.
Adams told reporters recently that he hadn’t given much thought to returning to North Texas in such a fashion, that the meaning of the game far surpassed any significance to be attached to the locale.
