Jamal Adams was the best safety in the NFL before the Seattle Seahawks traded for him in 2020. Adams is coming off the worst season of his career, but Seattle just gave him a record-breaking four-year, $70 million contract extension. All Seahawks fans can do is hope that the deal pans out and Adams raises his level of play in 2021.
The Seahawks remain confident that Adams is one of the top three safeties in the NFL. The LSU product was a First-Team All-Pro for the Associated Press in 2019 and earned Second-Team All-Pro honors in 2018 and 2020. For what he does on their defense, this is a decent contract for Seattle.
It’s never a great turn of events when a team becomes the first paying a position record-setting cash, but at least this contract lets Seattle retain a player they gave up multiple first-round picks for. The Seahawks also avoid having a deep 2022 free agent safety class drive up Adams’ total value.
The Seahawks posted a brief highlight reel on their Twitter account to celebrate Adams signing through his 30th birthday.

With Adams under contract, Seattle and General Manager John Schneider can focus on reaching an extension with former All-Pro left tackle Duane Brown.
