Bonus: Reacting to the Jamal Adams trade w/Rob Staton
The Seahawks pulled off a trade on Saturday for an immensely talented safety. Jamal Adams was an All-Pro in 2019 and second team All-Pro the year before. Seattle is getting a player who immediately gives them another player on the defensive side of the ball that opposing teams will need to account for. But it also came at a big cost.
While Pete Carroll and John Schneider have dealt first round picks in the past, no trade comes close to the amount of risk associated with this deal. But giving up two future first round picks, it means that if an injury occurs that gives the team a top 10 pick - the Jets will now be the beneficiary.
Did the Seahawks also make a mistake by not using a similar trade package for help along the defensive line? The next few weeks will tell us if Seattle is actually satisfied with the moves they've made up front or if there is more work to be done ahead of the Week 1 game against the Atlanta Falcons.
