The New York Jets have traded disgruntled All-Pro safety Jamal Adams to the Seattle Seahawks in exchange for a player and multiple first round draft picks. The deal is pending physicals.

Adams was drafted with the sixth overall pick of the 2017 draft out of LSU. After starting all 16 games his first two seasons, Adams earned All-Pro honors in 2019 although he missed two games. Adams also has a Pro Bowl selection from 2018 on his resume.

In hopes of receiving a new long-term contract before the end of his rookie deal, Adams requested a trade from the New York Jets this offseason.

The other player involved in the trade was Seattle safety Bradley McDougald. Undrafted out of Kansas in 2013, McDougald originally signed with the Kansas City Chiefs. After being promoted from the practice squad his rookie year, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers claimed McDougald off waivers. McDonald joined the Seahawks in 2017 and has one year remaining on his contract.

The New York Jets will acquire Seattle’s first and third-round draft picks in the 2021 draft. The Jets will also receive Seattle’s 2022 first-round draft pick while sending back their fourth round pick in return.
