Jamal Adams’ Tenure With the Seattle Seahawks

According to reports, the team has converted $9.92 million of Adams’ 2023 base salary into a signing bonus. As a result, it has cleared $6.61 million of cap space for this season. Adams’ new cap hits are now $11.4 million this season, $26.9 million next year, and $27.9 million in 2025. All in all, the Seahawks are still tied to him for a long time. So far during Adams’ Seattle tenure, he has recorded nine passes defended, 9.5 sacks, 15 tackles for a loss, and two interceptions.

It is clear why there was frustration among the Seattle faithful at first, but Jamal Adams seems to be settling into his own as a Seahawk now. However, can they have another Cinderella-like campaign like they did post-Russell Wilson?

All in all, it will telling how the Seattle Seahawks perform in just their second year after moving on from Russell Wilson.
