Seahawks safety Jamal Adams

It's odd we haven't heard a ton about Jamal Adams' recovery from his 2022 Week 1 injury. Head coach Pete Carroll has said that basically, it's a wait-and-see approach to whether Adams returns early in the season. At this point, it seems safe to say that Adams is nowhere near coming back for the Seahawks any time soon.

The shame of all of Adams' injuries is that he honestly seems like a guy who wants to be out on the field, playing well, and helping his team win. Any talk of Adams being a bad teammate has never been heard. He works hard to try to get back into shape to be able to play, but once he is playing, he gets hurt again. It's a vicious cycle, unfortunately.

Adams also seems to be well-liked by the Seahawks fanbase. This is the case even though he is making ton of money and hardly plays. Sure, there is a loud murmur that getting Adams from the New York Jets in 2020 was one of the worst trades in Seahawks history, and this might turn out ot be the case, but we are still not able to say that fully.

Adams could return this season and play at a very high level for the amount of time he participates in games. He's still the same guy that had 9.5 sacks in 2020, of course. But the Seahawks could still choose to release him if it is clear that he isn't going to play well into 2023. If this is the case, the Seahawks would have to eat some dead cap but they'd clear $9 million next offseason. Plus, Seattle signed safety Julian Love this offseason and he is an instant replacement for Adams.
