Seahawks Jamal Adams

I realize that Adams is due to make a lot of money in the next four seasons. In 2024 and 2025 he will make at least $23.6 million in each season. But here’s the thing. If another NFL team feels they are a safety short of being really good, then Adams might be worth trading for. Plus, his contract allows an out for a team after the 2023 season when a team would eat dead cap of $14.2 million.

Adams is still a really good player even though there seems to be a general consensus that he can’t cover well. This is a little overblown. What Adams truly struggles with is catching a wayward pass and turning it into an interception. His coverage skills are decent.

One team that might be interested in Adams is the Miami Dolphins. Miami has the cap room this season to pay Adams. In 2023, Miami’s cap space gets a lot tighter but that’s a year away and there will be changes to each team’s cap space by then. The Dolphins have an excellent defense and very good cornerbacks. Adding a versatile talent like Adams would cement their status as a top-tier unit.

For Seattle, Ryan Neal or Marquise Blair could step into Adams’ spot. They’d be more pure safeties and not supply the same kind of pass rush. But if Seattle could get Christian Wilkins back from Miami (Wilkins might be a player that the Dolphins use to free up cap space) then pass rush would less of an issue because Wilkins supplies great interior pressure.
