"After I get to the IHOP on Route 3, I'll start hitchhiking," Adams said with a laugh. "But they'd probably think I'm just some crazy person."
For Adams, the journey would be a statement of pride -- or defiance. Adams has some bad memories.
"It can be almost like a cancer," Adams said of his hometown. "And I say that because the negativity in that place can be like a snowball rolling downhill."
Perhaps he shouldn't return then? Anyway, Adams is one of three Broncos players who are New Jersey natives. Running back Knowshon Moreno and defensive end Robert Ayers also are from the Garden State. No word yet if they have similar walking plans.
