S - SEA
Per source, newly-acquired S Jamal Adams will play the 2020 season with the Seahawks on his existing rookie contract that will pay him $3.59M.
He’s then due $9.86M in 2021 which would be the final year of his rookie contract. Adams and Seattle both agreed that this would be the case prior to trading for the All-Pro Safety. As one of the top defensive players in the NFL, it’s not hard to envision the Seahawks eventually signing Adams to a multi-year extension.
New York Jets star S Jamal Adams has been traded to the Seattle Seahawks in exchange for S Bradley McDougald, a 1st-round pick in 2021, a 3rd-round pick in 2021, and a 1st-round pick in 2022.
The Seahawks will also receive a 4th-round pick in 2021 along with Adams. After saying they wouldn’t trade their star safety, the Jets finally made the move to part ways with their disgruntled leader on defense. Seattle gets one of the best defensive players in the NFL and the Jets get a serious overhaul of draft compensation in return. This looks on paper to be a win-win deal for both teams.
The Jets are expected to "stand pat" and "let this play out" on Jamal Adams' trade request, per Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.
The Jets are standing pat and will let the situation play out. The team has stated that they would listen to offers, but are not interested in dealing their star safety. Adams is looking to become of the highest paid defensive players in the NFL and has two years remaining (if his fifth-year option is picked up) in his rookie deal. The eight teams that Adams would welcome a trade include the Cowboys, Ravens, Texans, Chiefs, Eagles, 49ers, Seahawks and the Buccaneers. His top destination would be the Cowboys as he recently said in a video, "I'm trying to go to Dallas." Adams is reportedly seeking an extension worth $20 million annually. He racked up 75 tackles, 6.5 sacks, one interception and two forced fumbles across 14 games in 2019. Adams is currently ranked first among all defensive backs in the latest IDP expert consensus rankings.
In a video, when asked if he was coming to Dallas, Jamal Adams responded with "I'm trying to, bro."
After failed negotiations in regards to a contract extension, Adams has made it clear to the Jets that he wants to be traded. His preferred destination is Dallas. It was reported earlier this off-season that The Cowboys are interested in acquiring Adams, but there “isn’t any traction” towards a deal. The Ravens, Texans, Chiefs, Eagles, 49ers and the Buccaneers were also among the teams Adams would welcome a trade. The Jets are listening to offers for their star safety, but The 24-year-old is looking to become one of the highest paid safeties in the NFL. He was reportedly seeking a contract worth above $20 million annually. Adams is entering the fourth year of his four-year, $22 million rookie contract. He racked up 75 tackles, 6.5 sacks, one interception and two forced fumbles across 14 games in 2019. Adams is currently ranked first among all defensive backs in the latest IDP expert consensus rankings.
DB Jamal Adams has informed the Jets that he wants to be traded, per Rich Cimini of ESPN.
The Jets-Adams situation continues to deteriorate, and the star safety has requested a trade. He has made it known all off-season about wanting an extension, but both parties were unable to come to an agreement. It was reported that the Jets were not actively shopping Adams, but would listen to offers. Frustrated with the situation, Adams said “maybe it’s time to move on.” The 24-year-old is entering the fourth year of his four-year, $22 million dollar contract. He racked up 75 tackles, 6.5 sacks, one interception and two forced fumbles across 14 games in 2019. Adams will draw plenty of interest on the trade market, but the Jets could be hesitant to move on from their star safety. The Ravens, Cowboys, Texans, Chiefs, Eagles, 49ers and Seahawks are among the seven teams Adams would welcome a trade. Stay tuned.
