Jamal Adams: Shoulder, fingers “good now” after surgeries

Seahawks safety Jamal Adams missed the final weeks of last season after having shoulder surgery and he took another trip to the operating room after he went on injured reserve.

Adams told reporters earlier this week that he also had surgery to fuse the two middle fingers on his left hand. Adams demonstrated that he won’t be able to fully extend the fingers during his press conference and said he did it for “the love of the game” as well as a chance to feel like he’ll be playing with two arms for the first time in a while.

“Been going through that for two years now,’’ Adams said, via Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times. “I mean, my first year when I got here, dislocated my ring finger probably about 10 times and the other one, probably about 12. So I’ve been dealing with that. I didn’t really say much. Let everybody talk about it, whatever. But you know, it’s good now and they’re in trouble. . . . I played with one arm damn near for two years. But that’s no excuse. At the end of the day it was tape it up. Let’s go.”

New Seahawks defensive coordinator Clint Hurtt said earlier this year that he still believes Adams can be a difference maker in Seattle. Being at full health can only help Adams’ bid to prove him right.

  1. We’ve seen a lot of people talking crap at Adam’s expense.

    He has not been right for two years from a health standpoint, but has tried to play thru it as best he can.

    There are reasons why a horse goes off at even odds and others go off at 80-1, just like there are reasons why select NFL players command two #1 draft picks, and other players are simply released.

    Neither John Schneider nor Pete Carroll are fools.

    Over the next two years, we will see who finally wins at the betting window with the Adams trade-

  2. Didn’t they trade 2 first round picks for this guy and then get rid of their QB?

  3. He’s all set to have a great year, improve he was worth to first round draft picks.
    All he has to do is play quarterback.
