Jamal Adams has been looking for a trade for quite some time and on Saturday he got his wish, as the Seahawks made a deal for the Pro Bowler (via Ian Rapoport of NFL.com).
Seattle gives up a 2021 first-round pick, a 2021 third-round pick, a 2022 first-round pick, and safety Bradley McDougald in exchange for Adams.
The haul is remarkable, as it was no secret that Adams wanted out and the Jets’ handling of the situation made a trade desirable for the franchise.
The Ravens, Cowboys, Eagles, Texans, 49ers, Chiefs, and Buccaneers were also among Adams’ preferred destinations for a trade. New York’s asking price prevented those franchises from making a deal and now, he’ll report to the Seahawks this week.
Adams, who was Pro Football Focus’ No. 2 safety in 2019 (behind Vikings’ Anthony Harris), says he’s motivated, calling himself a “man on a mission.”
“To the Seahawks Org & Fans,” Adams wrote on Twitter, “You have a man on a mission, a man all in on winning a Super Bowl, being the best leader & teammate he can be, & a man who will give everything he has to the city of Seattle and to the 12s all across the world. Thank you for believing in me!”
