Adams joins the family

Welcome to the Lions, Marcus Adams Marcus Adams joins the Brisbane Lions and here are some of his highlights from his time at the Bulldogs.

The Brisbane Lions' backline has been strengthened by the addition of big-bodied defender Marcus Adams.

Adams comes to the Lions after three years and 27 AFL games at the Western Bulldogs. The Bulldogs received Pick No. 32 and a future third-round selection (on traded from Hawthorn) in exchange for Adams.

The 25-year-old was recruited to the Bulldogs as a mature age recruit in 2015 after displaying brilliant form for West Perth in the WAFL competition.

He made his debut for the Dogs in Round 1, 2016 and quickly impressed with his powerful boot, intercept marking ability and overall athleticism.

In 2018 he played six AFL games, with ankle and shoulder injuries robbing him of more time on field.

General Manager of Football David Noble was thrilled to land Adams. 

"We are thrilled to land another player with experience and versatility into our group," Adams said.

"Marcus can play at either end of the ground, is competitive and fits our age demographic.

"As a driven young man, Marcus will bring qualities to our culture and environment that we look for at our Club.

"This will continue to see our improvement & growth as a team in the years to come."
