Adams spent time with the Ravens and Lions last year, but last appeared in a regular season game with the Texans in 2019. He made one appearance for Houston and played 29 games for the Giants over the two previous seasons. He has 24 catches for 214 yards and a touchdown.

Riley played four games for the Cardinals and two games for the Vikings last season. He and Adams were previously teammates on the 2018 Giants.
