Remember Penn State defensive tackle Anthony “Spice” Adams back around the turn of the century? The Detroiter was one of our bright spots during the “Dark Years” (you ain’t seen nothin’ yet!). His energetic approach to the game got him drafted by the San Francisco 49ers in the second round of the 2003 NFL Draft, where he was given the nickname “Double-A”, suggesting that his energy source was a set of mythical internal batteries.
Adams first became a free agent after the 2006 season. He founded a program called Youthville to work with inner city youth in his home town of Detroit.
In 2007, Spice was picked up by the Chicago Bears, where he played until last season (2011). Now, he’s a free agent again.
