The Seahawks made the trade of the offseason to get Jamal Adams. Now they have one of the best Safety groups in the NFL. So, let’s meet the newcomer, and breakdown the four returning Seahawks.

After Saturday’s cut day, the Seahawks are now down to 53 total players on their active roster for Week 1 of the 2020 season, including 5 safeties. The only contract casualty was the undrafted free agent signing Chris Miller of Baylor.

The Seahawks safety group is certainly going to be one of, if not the strongest group for the Seahawks this season. In fact, they might even be the strongest safety group in the league. This is of course because of the biggest trade of the NFL offseason when the Seahawks acquired All-Pro safety, Jamal Adams, from the jets.

But the talent does not stop at Adams. Another man who made his way to Seattle via trade, Quandre Diggs, returns for his second season with the Seahawks. Behind them on the depth chart are the young and talented Lano Hill, Marquise Blair, and Ugo Amadi.

Add this group to Shaquill Griffin, Quinton Dunbar, and Tre Flowers, and the Seahawks have one of the best secondaries in the NFL. There has been some mention of “L.O.B. 2.0” on twitter, however, I would not go that far. I have been giving my predictions for who will start and who will be cut all summer, but as we have made it passed cut day, I will at least still break down every safety still on the Seahawks roster.

First, the brand new superstar.
