Reports surfaced earlier today that the Dallas Cowboys would release free safety Ken Hamlin.
A 12-year NFL veteran and a five-time Pro Bowl selection, Adams slowed in his later years with Dallas. He faced a slew of fines last season and developed a reputation as one of the most frequently penalized lineman in the league. Adams spent his career in Dallas charged with slowing the best pass rushers in the league, which he did well enough, at least, to earn a five-year extension in 2008.
"He has enjoyed his time in Dallas with his teammates and the Cowboys' organization," said Woy. "Now it is time to move on to a new team. Flo feels he has several good years in front of him."
Adams made 178 career starts for Dallas and, as the Dallas Morning News points out, is the last link to the era of the Triplets. He was due $5 million in base salary in 2010, with a $2.5 million roster bonus.
