Jamal Adams reports to training camp on time

Reports earlier this week indicated Jamal Adams would report to training camp on time Tuesday, and the Seahawks safety indeed has shown up at the team facility.

The Seahawks tweeted a photo of Adams among a collage of players reporting for camp. Russell Wilson appeared in one of the other photos.

Adams, 25, still wants a contract extension and the sides reportedly are not “close at all.” So, despite being in the building, Adams might not practice without a new deal.

As Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times pointed out, linebacker Bobby Wagner did not practice the first two practices of 2019 before signing a three-year, $54 million extension.

Adams will become the highest-paid safety in the NFL. That was all but assured when the Seahawks gave up what they gave up to get Adams from the Jets a year ago.

He is set to play out this season on his fifth-year option, which carries a salary of $9.86 million. Justin Simmons became the league’s highest-paid safety in March, signing a four-year deal that averages $15.25 million per year.

    Is that you Jamal adams?

  3. Better lock him in, lest my niners come scoop him up next year, like we did Sherm.

  4. Problem is Adams doesn’t just want to be highest paid safety. He wants to be one of the highest paid defensive players of all positions.

  5. What’s taking so long with closing this deal? I’m beginning to think the guy’s got physical issues – like Brian Bosworth’s degenerative shoulders.

  6. Hopefully they will get it worked out today. I’m okay with paying him at his elite level. That’s what the plan was when the team traded for him. That’s what needs to happen.
