The former No. 2 pick has not lived up to his expectations but seemed to have a solid relationship with QB Aaron Rodgers, who tore his Achilles on the first drive of last season.

After the Chiefs brought him in via free agency two years ago he never lived up to his contract cost, catching a combined 63 passes for 1002 yards and three scores the regular season since 2022. The move undoubtedly signals future moves by Kansas City to revamp their wide receiver room. MVS will now try to find a home elsewhere.

When asked if Jamal Adams is in the plans of new coach Mike Macdonald, Seahawks GM John Schneider allowed there a chance for him not to be. (Source: Seattle Times)

Fantasy Impact: “Is he in his plans?’’ Schneider said. “Yeah, I mean, we’ll find out. We’ll keep working through things. … We’re still trying to figure all that out.’’ The Seahawks are able to save quite a bit against the cap by releasing Adams later in the offseason, so it is something they may consider following some injury-riddled seasons in Seattle. If he is released, Adams shouldn't have much of a problem finding a new team.
