Trying to find a team in free agency when you’re not the youngest or the best at your position isn’t easy, as Anthony Adams, a nine-year NFL veteran is learning this summer and decided to give the world a taste of what he’s going through with ‘Stuff Free Agents Say’.
Videos of ‘Shit people say’ have been popping up like mushrooms after a rainy day over the last 12 months on youtube and from there all over the internet, but the ideas and originality are quickly running out. That’s why it’s good that Adams, a talented man with too much free time on his hands, knew he could at least put himself outthere more than he already was by making a clip that has quickly become an internet sensation.
