The New York Jets despatched a not-so-casual reminder with their DK Metcalf provide than the Seahawks might have had extra had they not traded for Jamal Adams.
Though DK Metcalf has made it clear that he hasn’t heard something a couple of commerce out of Seattle, that hasn’t deterred groups across the league from asking about him.
The New York Jets joined the fray, providing the Seahawks a No. 10 decide for Metcalf. The Seahawks declined, proving there are limits to their 2022 rebuild, however it’s onerous to think about that this provide from the Jets wasn’t despatched over with a twinge of irony.
That No. 10 decide was initially the Seahawks’ decide, however they traded that decide, a first-round and third-round decide final yr, and Bradley McDougald for Jamal Adams.
On the time, Adams was a flexible sturdy security who had a powerful profession with the Jets, which garnered the eye of Seattle. Whereas Seattle sought to bolster their protection after they traded for Adams in 2020, the Seahawks protection has had an arduous battle towards NFL offenses within the seasons since—and Adams particularly has struggled in his present function.
In the meantime, the Jets are having fun with the advantages of operating again Alijah Vera-Tucker whereas the Seahawks needed to commerce Russell Wilson to the Denver Broncos simply to get the No. 9 decide—a decide above what they might have had in the event that they didn’t steal Adams from the Jets.

Whereas the Adams commerce hasn’t turned out the way in which the Seahawks have imagined for quite a lot of causes, the burden of compensating for all that forgone draft capital is tough for any NFL participant to steadiness. FanSided’s Carson Shroer illustrated that with that No. 23 decide alone, the Seahawks might have taken somebody like Vikings LT Christian Darrisaw, Ravens DE Odafe Oweh, or Eagles C Landon Dickerson. The offensive line has been a degree of concern for Seattle since Adams has been there, and whereas Adams contributed at security, the Seahawks additionally lack the sturdy corners they as soon as had of their Legion of Growth days.
Free security Quandre Diggs exemplifies how effectively a commerce can go in making change on protection, however a part of the problem with Adams is that he hasn’t been utilized correctly. There have been a number of situations of Adams getting beat on performs as a result of his protection isn’t as sturdy: what he excels at is being a hybrid security/linebacker. Moreover, Adams has confronted damage at numerous factors all through his first two seasons, which restricted how a lot he was in a position to contribute.
It’s not that Adams is a nasty participant, as his accolades and reel clearly denote that he wields high NFL expertise. However he hasn’t been utilized correctly in Seattle’s protection, and getting him nonetheless value Seattle two first spherical picks after which some.
Adams value a lot, actually, that the Jets had the gall to supply Seattle their very own decide to steal away DK Metcalf. It might have been the right vengeful heist for the Jets, however for the Seahawks, even the provide is a reminder of how a lot Adams must compensate for with out that draft capital.
