Seahawks trade to Jets for All-Pro Jamal Adams

The Seahawks pulled off a blockbuster trade Friday afternoon to bring one of the NFL’s best defensive backs to Seattle…

Seahawks trade to Jets for Adams

Seattle acquired All-Pro and Pro-Bowl safety Jamal Adams from the Jets in exchange for two, first-round draft picks, a third-round pick and safety Bradley McDougald.

After the trade, Adams went to Twitter saying, “You have a man on a mission, a man all in on winning a Super Bowl, being the best leader and teammate he can be, and a man who will give everything he has to the city of Seattle and to the 12’s all across the world. Thank you for believing in me!”

Adams was the No. 6 overall pick out of LSU in the 2017 draft and started all 46 games he has played in his three-year career in New York. In 2019, Adams recorded 75-tackles, 6-and-a-half sacks. Two forced fumbles and one interception, which he returned 61-yards for a touchdown.

The Seahawks also terminated defensive end Branden Jackson. Those waived included running back Patrick Carr; wide receiver Seth Dawkins; guard Kahlil McKenzie; defensive back Josh Norwood; guard Jordan Roos; linebacker Sutton Smith; and tight end Dominick Wood-Anderson.

The NFL officially cancels the preseason

The Seahawks and the 31 other NFL teams are reporting to training camp this week following an offseason that was anything but business as usual.
Teams didn’t have the benefit of offseason workouts due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and to account for the longer time players will need to get ready for game action, the NFL announced Monday it is canceling the 2020 preseason.

Seahawks season ticket holders will be refunded or receive a credit towards their 2021 season ticket renewal for the two scheduled home games against the Las Vegas Raiders and Los Angeles Chargers. Seattle had also been scheduled to play at Minnesota and at Houston during the preseason. Instead the Seahawks will spend the next six weeks preparing for their regular-season opener at Atlanta.
