Adam Podlesh (born on August 11, 1983, in Rochester, New York) is an American football punter for the Chicago Bears.

Podlesh, who is Jewish, is a graduate of Pittsford Sutherland High School. He played college football for the Maryland Terrapins.

On June 2, 2008, he was elected to the Rochester Jewish Sports Hall of Fame. He was participating in the Jaguars OTA workouts, so his grandmother, Betty Podlesh, accepted the honor for him.

In 2010 Podlesh was diagnosed with cancer of the salivary gland, but following successful surgery he was told that radiation therapy and chemotherapy would not be required, and he returned to the field after six weeks, not missing any playing time.
