Jamal Adams vows to be “a man on a mission” in Seattle

Jamal Adams was disgruntled as a Jet, but as a Seahawk he says he’s motivated and ready to win.

“To the Seahawks Org & Fans,” Adams wrote on Twitter, “You have a man on a mission, a man all in on winning a Super Bowl, being the best leader & teammate he can be, & a man who will give everything he has to the city of Seattle and to the 12s all across the world. Thank you for believing in me!”

Adams also said he has high regard for Jets fans, even if he made no secret of the fact that he had little regard for Jets coach Adam Gase.

“To NY & especially the Jets fans,” Adams wrote, “I love you & will always love you. You all will hold a special place in my heart forever. When I came into the league, you embraced me & watched me grow! We went through it all together. Thank you for the Luv & support these 3 years.”

In Adams, the Seahawks undoubtedly have a talented young player. Whether he’ll remain a happy camper in Seattle — and whether he’ll play well enough to justify the two first-round draft picks Seattle traded away — remains to be seen.

  1. Disgruntled employees for one company, do not suddenly become exemplary employees at another company. There will be a breif honeymoon, then the marriage will sour.

  2. Earl Thomas is what made the Legion of Boom work. Nothing against Sherman and Kam who were great, but Thomas was the irreplaceable cog. Looks like Carroll is trying to replicate that.

  3. Trading away multiple 1st round picks for help on D didn’t help the Bears or Rams. But maybe it will work for Seattle.

  4. I will believe it when I see it. Once a team breaker always a team breaker is what I was always taught. Once someone thinks they are bigger than the team, then the team is better off without them.

  5. Adams is still a l-o-n-g shot and two first round picks is a big gamble (and perhaps a complete waste) for a player who might quickly sour.

  6. It’s only a matter of time before the same song and dance about paying him comes back. This guy can’t keep his mouth closed. I don’t see a lot of upset Jets fans crying about the best player on the team leaving. Says a lot.

  7. The Jets fan assessment of Adams on the other thread is spot on. He’s not even that good. He’s dumb, immature, can’t play in space, has weak lateral movement and only plays downhill.

    He’s a massive liability when forced to cover. A glorified Rover who apparently has duped people.

    20 mil per? Laughable.I’d question even giving him half of that.

    The fact Seattle didn’t have a deal in place was also a massive blunder.

    Shows you how weak theit talent base is if people think he was their best player. lol

  9. Jamal Adams suffers from the same mental illness that Cam Newton does – that you can just ‘go on a warpath’ and ‘be a man on a mission’ and fire yourself up into a stupor and kick ass and take names. Doesn’t work like that – you’re supposed to already have been on a mission, building your life routine around the daily, consistent incremental improvement in your craft. Look at Tom Brady – guy’s basically ‘been on a mission’ since day 1 in the NFL.

  10. When millionaires Control Billionaires LMAO! Two first for a BOX safety not even a ball hawk or a CB? And still needing to get his 15 mil per WTH!

  11. Just another selfish jerk saying the right things after demonstrating the opposite of leadership.

    Always amusing when one of PFT’s resident trolls lifts comments from online scouting reports in order to make himself appear knowledgeable.

  13. Very pleased that the Seahawks picked up a player who has two all pros, two pro bowls, and is only 24 years old. Duane Brown worked out OK as a disgruntled transfer. People also forget what an absolute train wreck the Jets are currently. Jamal Adams will be rocking in Seattle for years. How many Seattle first round draft picks do you remember? GO HAWKS!

  14. Could be on a mission to make a difference in the world or at least a neighborhood but hey knock yourself out .

  15. Zero credibility. Another loudmouth impressed when he looks in the mirror. He will never have anyone’s back except his own. No class whatsoever.

    I think he is Odell Beckham’s twin separated at birth.

    $25 million cap cut next year and Seattle will sign him to contract they can’t afford and dump him in two years just about the time he has destroyed the team and Pete Carroll has retired.

    We all know him well, but when he is right, he is right. The message is spot on even if you don’t like the messenger.

  17. All this talk about Adams being the “best” player on the Jets team.
    He didn’t lead them anywhere. They didn’t accomplish anything with him. How could they possibly miss him?

  18. “Once someone thinks they are bigger than the team, then the team is better off without them.”

    BB couldn’t have said it better.

  19. Just how much play is considered worth it for two round picks? In my estimation it’s got to be pretty high. As in hands down best player in that position for the entire league.

  20. He makes the entire defense better this year. Future draft picks are great for the future. Hawks go for the SB now. Jets enter another decade building for the future.

  21. have fun seattle. dude loves you on monday, hates you on tuesday, wants to get married on wednesday.

  22. Pete knows what he’s doing. He’s rebuilt the LOB. Shaquill Griffin pro bowl corner. Quandre Diggs cover safety ballhawk. Quentin Dunbar physical corner. And now a hard hitting downfield thumper Jamal Adams. Jamal reminds me of Kam Bam Chancellor. So pumped to see them all on the field.

    My own, personal analysis. Period.

    I’ve seen him 2x per year minimum. He’a dumb, a narcissist, wants attention and has a weak lateral ability in a passing league. He makes a couple of physical plays, flexes his muscles and then blows coverages a and over-pursues as part of a crap defense. Again, overrated. Very much a sef promoter and the Jets media always give these immature players a platform.

    He should be a 5 tool player drafted in the top 10. He is nowherr near Eddie Jackson, Derwin James, etc. Numerous safeties play a better position than him. You need to be ceberal at Safety. He is a dumb player.

    I don’t watch much college football so that’s my own analysis on him as a pro. If it matches scouting reports on him, so be it. Others have seen it, too.

    That’s what most people on here do. Look at stats, read articles, and steal others thoughts and opinions.

    There’s no way some on here are as knowledgeable, and have the insight, as they perceive to portray. Plagiarism is their best friend!

  25. Honestly who would want to work for Woody Johnson? He helped Trump try and fix the Open Championship going to Turnberry. The Ambassador to the Court of St. James trying to be a fixer?

  26. Yea, good luck with that Shoehawks.
    Talk to non Hawk fans in three years, when you still have no pass rush, you’re Oline remains a question mark, you pay that box safety 16 million a year and pay Wilson. The cap shrinks, no FA, and your #1 draft picks are not there.
    You’ll still be able to read Jamals tweets, to see how wonderful he still is
    Remember the name Landon Collins, that’s right, nobody does. .

  27. When you win in New York you are king of the world. When you win in Seattle, Well you won in Seattle,

  28. I can’t believe Seattle paid the price they did and now have to pay a Safety $15m+ per season with a huge signing bonus. The salary cap is rumored to go down for at least the next 2 seasons, so paying a Safety that kind of money along with Wilson’s $32m cap hit, Wagner’s $14m, and Brown’s $12.5m could really limit their free agent spending. I’m not sure this has been said in a long time, but the Jets won the trade.

  29. Only SEA would make a move that freaking stupid. SEA has no pass rush with the worst Defensive Line in the league per PFF, one of the worst OLs in the NFL with several key starters aging out, at RB Penny is a bust and Chris Carson is coming off a serious injury, they spent a 1st round pick this year on a MLB who everyone else had a 3rd round grade on, last years 1st LJ Collier was predominantly a run stopper offering little pass rushing ability n he looks like a total bust. SEA Traded a 5th for a CB who looks like he’s going to prison n who definitely will be suspended this year.
    SEA has ALL OF THOSE HOLES on their roster and they trade away not one but TWO 1st round picks for a safety, a freaking safety. That is hilarious. I don’t care who you have in your secondary if you can’t rush the passer they’re going to get burned all day long. As a Cardinals fan I couldn’t agree more with this trade, it ensures SEA will continue their downhill slide but Pete doesn’t care he knows in 2yrs he will be retired so he’s trying to go for it all now problem is SEAs roster sucks right now and doesn’t have the talent necessary to get close to a title much less win one.

  30. Saw the headline and was like “heck yeah!” Saw what they gave up to get him and now I feel sick. If he doesn’t get them over the hump it will look foolish by any measure.

  31. As someone who watches the jets I can assure you he runs his mouth a lot.
    He had 2 games last year where he padded his stats, one of which was against the Giants. He’s a very good player, but not a difference maker. And he’s going to get overpaid.

  32. Jamal Adams is a leader on any defense.

    This false narrative that he was a cancer in any situation of than the end when he wanted to get paid was a strategic campaign he and his agent deployed.

    I’m happy for him and expect he will be an absolute monster in Seattle.

  33. I’m a jet fan for over 50 years Jamal was the best safety we ever had.that being said is isn’t earl thomas Ed reed or even Derwin James… he isn’t worth $15+ million a year…even though the picks will be at the end of the first round this was a tremendous haul ..Joe Douglass May be the first competent GM we ever had

  35. The Jets literally stole high value draft picks for a good, but not great, player…maybe for a 2nd & 3rd…maybe…like other things going on in Seattle, this is insanity…

  36. Great trade for the Seahawks. Jamal Adams is a monster. Its nice to see players not accepting lingering away on bad teams and teams that dont care about winning. Only half the teams in the NFL care about winning and thats a problem for the League. They all publicly say they want to win, but the same teams always lose and mostly the same teams are in the Playoffs

  37. “Trading away multiple 1st round picks for help on D didn’t help the Bears or Rams. But maybe it will work for Seattle.”

    There’s no way the Bears would have won the division in 2018 and even been 8-8 last year with their offense. That was entirely because of the defense.

    Even hobbled last year, without a credible threat from the OLB opposite Mack, they were still near the top of the league.

  38. All of you Jamal haters take note! Would you as a person trade out and to Seattle or stay a Jet if you had a friggin clue on how to get it done ???

    Good on him extricating himself from a bad organization…

  39. Seahawks just traded 2 late 1st round picks a late 3rd and McDougald for a 6th overall draft pick…and an early 4th. It’s a good trade for both teams.

  40. Wow he makes a terrible teamate You could’ve gave it your all in NY but you did’t have the heart No use in selling nonsense now

  41. As a Seahawk fan I’m not sure why we let Thomas go for money only and then trade for Adams with multiple first round picks plus you have to pay him more than Thomas would have been. Yes, i think right now Adams is better than Thomas (due to age), but why give up a bird in the hand vs one in the bush?

    Adams doesn’t hold a candle to Kam. Adams can hit and that’s about it. Kam could do it all, and was a LEADER.

    The “NBA style force trade” is not good for the NFL. One player (short of a hall of fame QB) cannot turn an NFL franchise around on his own. Building a TEAM is so much more important than collecting talent. I’m sure the Jets are ecstatic to be rid of this crybaby and to have a couple extra high picks.

  44. …as long as that mission is getting paid. And that’s OK, but don’t tell us all the other BS. Next we’re going to hear that he ‘wants to be a Seahawk for life.’
