Seahawks, Jamal Adams strike 4-year, $70M deal

The Score

The Seattle Seahawks and safety Jamal Adams have agreed to a four-year, $70-million contract that includes $38 million guaranteed and makes him the top-paid player at his position, reports NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Adams secured a $70-million deal that includes $38 million guaranteed and makes him the highest-paid player at his position, reports NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

The agreement came after extension talks reportedly hit a wall. The Seahawks were apparently prepared to use the franchise tag on Adams in 2022 once his rookie deal expired; he reportedly would have tried to secure a more lucrative tag by arguing he plays linebacker instead of safety.

Seattle acquired Adams from the New York Jets last offseason in a blockbuster trade. The Seahawks gave up two first-round picks and a third-round selection in the deal.
