While Major League Baseball steals headlines with their season-opening, the Seahawks brought the NFL back to the forefront on Saturday with the acquisition of safety Jamal Adams from the New York Jets.

According to Brian Costello, the Jets are sending Adams and a 2022 fourth-round pick to the Seahawks in exchange for safety Bradley McDougald, a 2021 first and third-round pick, and a 2022 first-round pick.

This move comes on the heels of Adams discussing his concerns with Manish Mehta about Adam Gase’s ability to lead the Jets moving forward. This is in addition to his open lobbying for a trade for much of the offseason. And now, he is one his way to the Pacific Northwest.
