Jamal Adams wants out of New York.
The All-Pro safety, who is signed through 2021, has reportedly demanded to be traded by the Jets if a new deal isn’t done before the regular season.
He reportedly gave the Jets a list of seven preferred destinations and according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Adams would welcome a trade to the Seattle Seahawks.

So would Seahawks 2020 second-round pick Darrell Taylor.
Over the weekend, B/R Gridiron shared a photo of Adams with a slideshow of possible landing spots. Taylor screenshotted the slide showcasing Seattle’s defense and delivered this message to the two-time Pro Bowler.
“Come on @PresidentMal.”
Taylor isn’t the first Seahawks player to drop Seattle’s name in the Jamal Adams sweepstakes. Quandre Diggs also chimed in on the idea back in March.

Since the 2017 NFL Draft, Adams is the only defensive back with 10-plus sacks, 20-plus quarterback hits and 25-plus tackles for loss, per NFL Research. His 6.5 sacks, 13 quarterback hits and 10 tackles for loss in 2019 were each career-bests.
While Jadeveon Clowney watch continues more than100 days after free agency began, Adams could be that “wow” acquisition the Seahawks need to bolster the secondary for years to come.
