The Seattle Seahawks pulled off a blockbuster trade on Saturday, acquiring All-Pro safety Jamal Adams from the New York Jets.
In exchange, the Jets received multiple valuable draft picks. That includes a first-round pick each of the next two years. For Seattle, this move cements its status as the top candidate to unseat the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC West.
Adams had requested a trade from New York due to both a contract stalemate and issues with the Jets’ front office. Needless to say, the NFL world had its reactions to Saturday’s blockbuster trade.
