The big question is whether or not they caved and gave him the 3rd year guarantee.  Seattle legitimately doesn’t do that for anyone, even Russell Wilson.

I'm sure they did...if they didn't get this deal done they look COMPLETELY inept as an organization after trading so much for him. He basically had them over a barrel.

Jamal is a dawg. A loud dawg, but a dawg.

He played his heart out when he was here, then brought us back a nice return when we couldn’t agree to a deal with him. He ended up on a really good team, and now he got paid.

Hopefully the picks we got for him turn into dawgs also.

Maybe this place can let go of him now. It was sad watching grown men carry on about the one that got away.

Does that mean you would give the picks back for  him and give him that contract to keep the “ one that gut away?”

The Seattle Seahawks have agreed to a four-year extension with Jamal Adams that will make him the NFL's highest-paid safety with a deal that has a maximum value of $72 million, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter on Tuesday.

The deal for Adams, 25, includes a $20 million signing bonus, a source told Schefter.

It tops the $15.25 million per-year average by the Denver Broncos' Justin Simmons.

The Seahawks and Adams' agent began negotiating early in the offseason and continued to do so through the start of training camp until their recent period of inaction

Seattle is running out of time.  Wilson has had a ton of concussions and looked like a boxer on queer street in the playoffs last year.  The trade and now the signing seems like a panic move by an organization that built two SB on a couple of great drafts with mostly low paid players.   If this doesn't work by moving the needle in the playoffs I can see Pete getting blamed.

Whoa.  $17.5 per over four years.  Well, he is the highest paid safety in the league now.  No doubt about that.

As for his play, in the right system he is a dynamite SS and the straw that stirs the drink.  In the wrong system - our new system and the one run in Seattle - he can be isolated in man to man coverage and his lack of lateral agility gets exploited by the NFL.

I thought the trade odd for Seattle because of the poor scheme fit.   After all, Pete Carroll is not going to change his scheme.   I also am with those who believe that Seattle paid too much.  Lastly, I thought that a rebuilding Jets would have better uses for the money - eventually - if we could turn the ship around.  But I do think that you can build a winner around Adams.  As Parcells says: "you have to be willing to stick your face in the fan".  Adams does it with gusto and will play as long as he avoids major injury.   But he really does need the right scheme to mask his weakness against the pass in man to man coverage.  One that plays a lot of nickel with a linebacker named Jamal Adams.     They do not do that in Seattle.  Their scheme is a lot like ours. 

Well, it will be fun to see how this one ages.
