This seems like a odd move for a team that's supposedly in rebuild-mode, and though I don't love the fit, I do love the player. Adams originally entered the National Football League with the New York Giants as an undrafted free agent out of CT in 2016.

KL also ranked higher that the Chinese cities of Beijing, Guangzhou and Shenzhen, or the Indian cities of New Delhi, Mumbai, and Bengaluru. The ranking looks at 231 cities around the world. Western Europe dominates this ranking, however Brussels (47th place) falls considerably between 2005 and 2019 due to terrorist attacks, and Greece (102nd place) also takes a dive due to its slow recovery from the global financial crisis. "The key is relevant, reliable data and standardised measurement, which are essential for employers to make critical decisions, from deciding where to establish offices to determining how to distribute, house and remunerate their global workforces", Mullins adds. Luxembourg was named as the safest city in the world, followed by Helsinki in Finland and the Swiss cities of Basel, Bern and Zurich.

At the bottom end of the scale, African and Middle Eastern cities facing security issues came out worst, with Baghdad propping up the table despite "significant improvements in security and sanitation services in recent years". Tokyo, Kobe, Yokohama, Osaka, and Nagoya followed Singapore lead on Mercer's quality of living survey.

In Africa, Port Louis (83) was the city with the best quality of living and also its safest (59). According to the survey, Phnom Penh is in the lowest rank in terms of personal safety.
