“We have found the person we believe is responsible and we are with him at this time and that’s all I can say about the suspect,” Faris said, adding that they had no reason to believe anyone else was involved. “We are currently at his house and we are serving a search warrant.”

See the report below:

Adams now 33 years old, played in 78 NFL games over five seasons for six teams. A safety and special teams player from South Carolina State, Adam was drafted by the 49ers in 2010 as a seventh-round draft pick.

Adams also was with New England, Seattle, Atlanta, Oakland and the New York Jets, finishing his career with the Falcons in 2015.
