It must me nice to collect an NFL salary and Social Security at the same time. :wink:

Dude never quits. Pretty amazing stuff. Unsigned to begin the season; contributing heavily to a playoff win.

One of the oldest defensive NFL players. "Pops" has earned his nickname.

from the Houston Chronicle after he signed. Not sure how many games he has had with Houston.

The New Jersey native started every game for the Panthers the past two seasons, combining for five interceptions and 16 passes defended with 144 tackles.

Adams has played in 222 career games, trying him for 142nd all-time and sixth as a safety. With two more games played, he'll be tied with John Lynch and Brian Dawkins for fourth all-time among safeties.

With five more games, he'll rank third all-time.

Eugene Robinson leads all NFL safeties with 250 all-time games.

Team link says he has 6 games with the Texans (so far).

Also, fun article about what he brings to the locker room (literally and figuratively)

And here's a little about his productivity last Saturday

Also, according to this list, if accurate, Charles Woodson has 4 more games played than Robinson.
