Former New York Jets strong safety Jamal Adams claims he was anything but “bored” in the Seattle Seahawks season-opening win.
The former strong safety would say something.
“I wasn’t bored,” Adams told the media after the Seahawks win over the Atlanta Falcons, via Adam Jude of The Seattle Times. “I was blitzing. I was having fun.”

It was, of course, a bit of a shot in Gregg Williams’s direction.
The Jets’ defensive coordinator used the word “bored” during his first media availability following the shocking Adams trade.
“Jamal may get bored there because they don’t use their safety-type things with all the complexities … maybe not showing what they’re doing as much as we do,” Williams said.
With a sack, 12 total tackles (eight solo, two for loss) and two quarterback hits, Adams looked anything but bored Sunday. He instead looked like the same Jamal Adams every Jets fan became acquainted with over his first three seasons in the NFL.
What fans have also realized is Adams will say and do anything to get his way or take a shot. His Jets jabbing did not stop at the word “bored.”
“I’m not used to it,” Adams said in reference to Seattle’s offense putting up 38 points Sunday afternoon. “It’s exciting. It’s exciting to know when we do come off the field we can make our adjustments, catch a breather.”
Adams and the Seahawks not get ready for a team the defensive superstar knows well—the New England Patriots. Only this time, there’s no Tom Brady.
Yet again, Adams may feel a new “first” in Week 2—a win over the Patriots. (He is 0-6 all-time against Bill Belichick’s squad.)
Do you think he might say something about it once it’s all over?
