ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that the New York Jets traded safety Jamal Adams to the Seattle Seahawks.

Adams is a tremendous player, but man, that is a ton to give up. Two first-round picks and a third-rounder. Good on the Jets for sticking to their word. New York said they wouldn’t move Adams unless they got a deal they couldn’t turn down. Seattle gave them that deal.

Seattle gets better on defense right away, and Adams brings an instant impact. Adams gets to go to a contender, which was his wish. Good for him.

Rumors were floating around that Adams was interested in a few other teams, including the San Francisco 49ers. No way would an organization that’s looking to build for the future would give up two first-round picks for a safety. I still don’t think the Rams came out ahead in their trade for Jalen Ramsey, and cornerback is more important than safety. I love Adams. I think he’s a fantastic player, but goodness Seattle.
