The Seattle Seahawks are a few days away from preseason Week 3. Tough roster decisions will have to be made by the time final roster cuts are made on August 29th. And, just an FYI. Seattle traditionally makes the announcement of who made the team and who didn't very late in the day on cut day.
We know a couple of players appear to be returning, so more on that in a minute. This will shake up roster plans a bit. Or more likely, the Seahawks already knew what was going to happen.
We also learned yesterday a bit more about what happened near the end of the Seahawks versus Patriots Super Bowl. At least some slightly new information about Seattle's decision to throw instead of run. Here is some other Seahawks news for your Wednesday.
Seahawks will activate Jamal Adams off PUP list
Per ESPN's Brady Henderson, the Seahawks are expected to activate Jamal Adams off the Physically Unable to Perform list on Wednesday. Once Adams is activated, he won't be able to go back on the PUP list which means he very likely will be on the 53-man active roster for Week 1. But he still might not be ready to play.
Most likely, Adams won't be ready for a couple of games into the season. He might be physically able to play, but he has missed a ton of football and still needs to work his way back into football shape. This is going to take some time. Anothing thing is where exactly Adams is going to play. Speculation has been that Adams will be more of a linebacker than a safety. If that is so then Adams will have to learn his assignments and the new spot.
Of course, Adams probably won't be a traditional linebacker but more of a hybrid safety/linebacker. What that looks like is anyone's guess. And Seattle trying to figure out how Adams might fit now this late in training camp isn't a good thing either. Still, Adams should bring some kind of elite-level pass rush once he does get all the way back. For now, head coach Pete Carroll said on Tuesday that Adams will participate in walk-throughs.
