Quick numbers and info on the Jets’ Jamal Adams replacement, Bradley McDougald.

McDougald, 29 (30 in November), was signed as an undrafted free agent out of Kansas by the Chiefs in 2013.

During his rookie season, McDougald was waived and claimed by the Buccaneers. In Tampa Bay, McDougald would play in 47 out of 48 possible games from 2014-16, starting 31 of 32 from 2015-16.

After ranking fourth among safeties with 10 passes defended in 2016, McDougald signed a one-year deal with the Seahawks heading into 2017 and re-upped on a three-year deal heading into 2018. He played 50 out of 51 possible regular season and playoff games under Pete Carroll over the past three seasons, starting 39 (33 of 35 over past two seasons).

Let’s hop into some key numbers behind McDougald’s three-year stint in Seattle.


McDougald began his first season in Seattle as a reserve until taking over as a starter over the final nine games. He was excellent once given the opportunity, particularly in coverage. He put up some fantastic numbers in the passing game:

I thought about the Maye part. IMO Maye might be a better tackler than McDougald right?
