With the abandonment of the package, which includes two first-round sets, there is no doubt that Seattle’s Seahawks want Yamal Adams to be long-lasting, but several sources told ESPN on Tuesday that the team is in no hurry to sign the All-Pro safety extension. .
Sources said Seahawks plans to wait until next year, as opposed to making large financial commitments, as there is no current uncertainty about how much the NFL will lower the wage cap in the coming seasons due to the revenue shortfall caused by the coronavir pandemic.
Seahawks acquired Adams at the mall on Saturday. The Jets of New York sent first-round picks in each of the other two drafts, in 2021. Third wheel set and safety Bradley McDougald. Seattle chose 2022. The fourth round of the election, along with Adams, who asked for a trade last month because the Jets were not going to give him an extension.
The source added that Adams understood Seahawks’ position on his contract and added that the deal would not have taken place if safety had required an extension from Seattle immediately. In several social media posts, Adams expressed joy at joining the Seahawks, including an Instagram Live video in which he dances with a cigar in his hand.
“I’m glad I’m Seattle’s sea hawk,” the shining Adams shouts into the camera. “I’m happy.”
Sources told ESPN’s Rich Cimini that Adams wants to beat Chicago bear Eddie Jackson ($ 14.6 million) as the NFL’s highest-paying safety.
Adams had two years left and 13.45 million. USD remained the contract he signed as the sixth general election in 2017. He plans to earn 3.59 million. USD 2020 – 2.765 million A $ 5,000 bonus on the fifth day of training camp and a $ 825,000 base salary. and 9.86 million. USD for his five-year option in 2021.
The Seahawks were burned by a large budget due to a trade replenishment that never promised the team. They gave Percy Harvin an extension for six years ($ 67 million) when he bought it in 2013, then sold him a minimal return the following season after his volatility became no longer possible.
Another pending advantage of the Adams extension is that the Seahawks give more time to evaluate him as an individual. It also avoids a potentially awkward locker that plays key players who can extend an extension but haven’t received them yet, such as corner Shaquill Griffin and running Chris Carson.
According to ESPN statistics and information research, the Adams trade marked the fourth time since 2018, when the team abandoned multiple player selections in the first round. The other three such players were corner Jalane Ramsey, left defender Laremy Tunsil and lineman Khalil Mack. Until then, this had not happened since Jay Cutler in 2009.
