In exchange for Adams, the Jets will be getting two first-round picks (2021 and 2022) and a third-round pick (2021) from Seattle in addition to strong safety Bradley McDougald, a key addition considering the lack of a strong safety on the roster beyond Adams.
It’s a fantastic haul for the Jets, one worthy of parting with the best safety in football. The timing is key, as they can move into training camp without a dark cloud hanging over the team.
Avoiding the fiasco entirely and getting Adams extended long-term was the best-case scenario, but this outcome is about the best realistic escape route to what actually transpired.
Le’Veon Bell shared his thoughts on the trade.
