Jamal Adams, Seahawks seem like an ideal long-term partnership

For those who complained that the Seahawks weren't "all-in" on going for the Super Bowl, the argument ended Saturday.

Adams, 24, was the sixth overall pick out of Louisiana State in 2017 and has been a fixture on the Jets ever since.

The Jets have acquired three draft picks from the Seattle Seahawks including a pair of first-rounders and S Bradley McDougald in exchange for veteran safety Jamal Adams and a fourth-round pick in 2022. Last season Adams recorded 75 tackles, 6.5 sacks, two forced fumbles and one interception, which he returned 61 yards for a touchdown. Miami is 6-2 against NY over the last four seasons - and their most recent loss was a 1-point content in which the Jets needed an egregious penalty call against the Dolphins defense to extend their game-winning drive. And Adams gets what he wished for in getting away from Head Coach Adam Gase. But how do the Jets offloading the malcontent Adams in this deal measure up to other recent defensive player blockbuster deals?

His attack on Gase came a couple of days after he attacked Jets owner and United States Ambassador to the United Kingdom Woody Johnson on Twitter in response to a report that alleged Johnson of making racist and sexist remarks. Adams earned second-team AP All-Pro honors in 2018, and was a first-team selection in 2019, and has also been a Pro-Bowler each of the past two years.

Back in Seattle, the Legion of Boom was built through the draft with Earl Thomas being the highest pick of the players taken in that version of Seattle's secondary.

The benefit? The Seahawks are adding an All-Pro to a suspect defense that is in need of blue-chip talent. Significant improvement in 2020 hardly seemed certain with a still-questionable pass rush and no word on whether cornerback Quinton Dunbar, their top offseason acquisition, will be available due to his legal situation. Adams has been to two Pro Bowls.

He was scheduled to make $10.7 million over the next two years on his rookie deal, including $3.5 million for the 2020 season.

This morning, we arise to a Jets team that does not have Jamal Adams on the roster. He's hoping to get more than $14.6 million a year in an extension. That was also the Steelers' thinking in trading for Fitzpatrick.
