Shark Bites

The Seahawks on Saturday acquired S Jamal Adams from the Jets. Seattle sent 1st-round picks in each of the next 2 drafts, a 3rd-round pick in 2021 and S Bradley McDougald for Adams and a 4th-rounder in 2022. That's a pretty shocking package for a safety, one of football's most fungible positions according to league salary averages. Adams, of course, ranks among the top players at the position. And he should continue to star in Seattle. Playing behind a stronger LB corps figures to ding his tackle upside, though. And the Seahawks aren't likely to have him rush the passer anywhere near as much as the Jets did last season. Adams garnered 101 pass-rushing chances in just 14 games, 2nd most among all safeties. Baltimore's Chuck Clark (106) was the only other safety to top 74 in that category. Seattle's entire safety group totaled 31 pass rushes. So don't expect Adams to come anywhere close to last season's 6 sacks. On the other side, S Bradley McDougald gains upside with the opportunity to take over Adams' spot. McDougald tallied top-20 fantasy finishes with the Bucs in 2016 and the Seahawks in 2018. He certainly carries that potential into 2020. We'll watch to make sure he wins the SS job with his new team. As for the team defenses, we're not adjusting the numbers on either unit for this trade.

Seahawks S Jamal Adams (groin) and CB D.J. Reed (groin, knee) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. We'll keep an eye out for updates between now and Sunday's release of inactives.

The Seahawks have agreed to a 4-year extension with S Jamal Adams. The deal holds a maximum value of $72 million, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo, with $38 million fully guaranteed. Adams has been in camp but sitting out practices. This deal should return him to full action. We haven't moved Adams down our DB rankings at all.

Seahawks S Jamal Adams has been sitting out training-camp practices amid a stalemate in negotiations on his contract extension. But eternal optimist HC Pete Carroll doesn't expect that to carry over into the regular season. “Oh, I’m not even thinking about that at all,” Carroll told The Seattle Times this week. “I don’t know. I can’t even imagine that.” We'll see about Adams as the regular season draws closer.

Seahawks S Jamal Adams has reported for the beginning of training camp. Whether he would do so was in question as the star safety and the team remain locked in negotiations on a long-term contract. But IDP fantasy players need not worry about Adams' status.

Seahawks S Jamal Adams played through a torn labrum in his left shoulder in Saturday night's win over the Rams and will now need offseason surgery, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Adams reportedly also might require surgery on his right shoulder and plans to have surgery on his left hand. We'll see whether any of these issues delay his start to 2021, but we'd bet on the star safety being ready.
