Jamal Adams, Seahawks

Seahawks star Jamal Adams out for the rest of the season

The Seattle Seahawks started the 2022 season off on the right foot with an impressive win over Russell Wilson and the Denver Broncos.

However, the team took a tough blow as Pro Bowl safety Jamal Adams suffered an injury to his quadriceps tendon in the Week 1 contest. The injured occurred in the first half when he attempted to blitz Wilson.

Seattle placed Adams on the injured reserve on Thursday and signed Teez Tabor of the Atlanta Falcons’ practice squad. The injury is a significant loss as the star safety played a massive part in the team’s defensive game plan.

The 26-year-old has struggled to regain his footing since joining the Seahawks due to injuries and inconsistent play. Last season, he finished without a sack in 12 games.

Adams hasn’t been the player that the Seahawks hoped for when they acquired him before the 2020 season. He had proven to be an all-around factor with his ability to pass rush and defend against the pass.

Instead, his reputation has taken a hit during his Seattle tenure, as he struggled last year and has missed eight games over his first two seasons. That total will likely tally up to being sidelined for 24 games over three years.

Adams is in the first year of his four-year, $70.5 million deal that runs through the 2025 season. If the injuries continue to pile up, the Seahawks could consider other options as his the dead cap hit drops in the final two years of his contract to $14.2 million in 2024 and $7.1 million in 2025.
