If you were watching the Bears’ game against the Buffalo Bills closely Saturday, you may have noticed Adams doing a rocking motion for his TD celebration. That is because Adams’ wife gave birth to a baby girl the night before, Brexleigh Michelle Adams.
“Man, it was – I mean, amazing isn’t even the word. I mean, having her yesterday and then coming out, and then scoring a touchdown for her – for my wife – man, it’s crazy,” Adams said. “I slept at the hospital last night – from the hospital, I drove right to the stadium. I slept on the couch, with her right next to me.”MORE NEWS: 5-Year-Old Boy Found Walking Around Belmont CTA Station
The Bears are expected to sign another wide receiver, Isaiah Coulter – a fifth-round of the Texans last year.
