Pete Carroll and John Schneider finally found a replacement for Kam Chancellor, but my goodness they gave up a lot to get him.

Jamal Adams was the sixth overall pick in 2017. The Jets had already picked up the fifth-year option on his rookie deal, which expires in 2021, for a total of $13.5 million over the next two seasons. However, he has made it clear he wants to sign an extension as soon as possible, and his sky-high salary demands are part of the reason he was available in the first place.
Earlier this week, we noted that Adams was among the league leaders in defeats at his position. That includes 6.0 sacks, two more than anyone in Seattle had in 2019. Maybe they're going to play him at edge rusher.
