3 players who have likely played their last game with the Seahawks
By Almar Reyes
Seahawks safety Jamal Adams
This will be a tough sell for everyone as Seattle is in dire need of defensive help. When safety Jamal Adams went down with a season-ending leg injury in Week 1 with a torn quadriceps tendon, Seattle was obliterated in the middle by every teams’ running game. The absence of Adams was not the only culprit, but missing him in the middle of the field was one of the key factors that the Seahawks could not stop the run game.
Adams figures to be a key cog in this year’s success for the Seahawks if he stays healthy, and that is a big if. Much like Rashaad Penny, Adams cannot find himself to stay healthy on the field after being traded from the New York Jets in 2020. Aside from being injured often, Adams carries a huge contract of 4 years and $70.5 million. That is a huge financial commitment to a player that cannot prove to stay on the field often enough.
It will be hard to move this kind of money via trade, especially if the player is coming off a season-ending surgery. However, I will not put this one past Schneider and Carroll to look into this, and see if they can somehow move away from this contract. There are options in the free agency to replace Adams if indeed the Seahawks decide to part ways with their own safety.
