Jamal Adams Plans To Retire With Seahawks 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Fri Jul 31, 2020 1:13 pm

After months of fighting, sometimes publicly, with the New York Jets over his contract and future, Jamal Adams is thrilled to be with the Seattle Seahawks.

\"When I got the call, honestly, I broke down in tears of joy,\" Adams said of last weekend\'s trade. \"A lot of mixed emotions. I\'m gonna miss a lot of the guys over there. But at the end of the day, man, this was my calling. This was where I need to be.\"

Adams has two years left on his rookie contract. The massive haul, including two first-round picks, that the Seahawks gave up appears to indicate long-term interest in the safety, but a new deal won\'t be reached in 2020.

\"The plan is to retire here,\" the 24-year-old said. \"This is my plan. But obviously, those things handle themselves. When all you have to do is just go on the field and perform, do the right things on and off the field, and those things will take care of itself, man. So I\'m very excited to be here. I know the rest of the guys are excited to have me, and the coaching staff, and everybody else. So again, man, we\'ll worry about that when the time comes.\"

Adams wears his emotions on his sleeve. A couple years ago he wanted to be a Jet for life. He's all talk. Great football player, but a drama queen that can't handle social media. I'm sure he'll be great on the Seahawks, but get ready for a major contract dispute next off season when the cap goes down $20m and they need to gut the team to keep him or he just walks.

What a goddamn hypocrite!
SELL THE TEAM, JIM!!! :curse:
