If one thing is clear after the Jamal Adams trade, the Seahawks are all in on 2020. Here are 3 players Seattle should sign today to help with their Super Bowl hopes.
The Seahawks made a huge move trading for Jamal Adams. It may have cost them an arm and a leg to get him. However, the level of talent he possesses gives the chance to bring the team to the next level.
The Seahawks clearly saw a player who was top at his position and a true difference-maker. They decided, whatever the cost, we need to get Adams on the team. As I said, it wasn’t cheap. It cost the organization two first-round draft picks and a third-rounder. From what I can tell the fourth round pick the Seahawks recovered was specifically for Bradley McDougald.
Jamal Adams brings a mixture of Kam Chancellor and Earl Thomas back to Seattle. The Seahawks have desperately been trying to draft the heirs to the Chancellor and Thomas. However, their attempts have been mostly unsuccessful. This likely in part why Seattle made the trade. They saw the impact those two had and decided we need another true difference-maker at safety.
Jamal Adams is far more than just a safety. He is a true defensive weapon. In fact, he has played all over the field thus far in his career. Take a look at his career snaps at each position grouping:
He is one of the most gifted athletes in the game. His best skill is his ability to effectively and efficiently rush the passer. In fact, he is one of only two players to accumulate 200+ tackles, 10+ sacks, and 25+ pass breakups in the first 3 seasons. The other player is JJ Watt of the Houston Texans.
Seattle is going all in this year. If they want to make the most of this trade and their current roster, there are 3 other players that the Seahawks should consider signing.
