Seahawks Blue Friday news: Jamal Adams and Shaun Alexander
By Lee Vowell
In Seahawks news for Week 2 of the 2022 season, Jamal Adams is officially done for the rest of the season and happy stuff for Shaun Alexander.
The Seahawks have started 1-0 in 2022 and currently lead the NFC West. This, of course, was completely expected heading into the year.
OK, clearly, that is a joke. But still, while national pundits might have expected the Denver Broncos and Russell Wilson to blast Seattle in Week 1, that didn’t happen. Geno Smith played fantastically in the first half and the defense played heroically at the goal line and Seattle won.
But not all news is good for Seattle following Week 1. Here is one sad fact and one happy one.
Seahawks Blue Friday news: No Jamal Adams rest of the year
Jamal Adams out for the season with a quad injury
12s knew the injury was bad after seeing Jamal Adams being carted off the field and hoped that it wasn’t as bad as it looked. Sadly, the injury was. As it turns out, Adams tore his quadriceps tendon and he will require season-ending surgery.
This will be the third straight year, or literally every season Adams has played for the Seahawks, that Adams will finish his season with some kind of surgery. He simply seems to be cursed at this point. Seattle is still paying Adams a ton of money and the first real out they have for his contract is after 2023. If Seattle were to release Adams before the end of next year, he will eat up $21 million of dead cap.
Yet, Adams hasn’t shown he can stay healthy for any stretch of important games so finding his replacement might be needed much sooner than later. Adams will move to IR and Seattle signed Teez Tabor to take his spot on the roster if not his spot as a starter.
Seahawks will honor Shaun Alexander
Shaun Alexander will be the next former Seahawk player to be inducted into the team’s Ring of Honor. He will be the 15th member of the organization to be so. Alexander is currently the franchise’s all-time leader in rushing attempts (2,176), rushing yards (9,429), rushing touchdowns (100) and total touchdowns (112). Alexander also led the offense to the team’s first Super Bowl appearance which happened in the 2005 season.
The induction will take place on October 16th during halftime of the Seahawks and Arizona Cardinals game.
