Barnwell has a piece talking about him sort of playing LB and Edge:Is Seattle confused about the position Adams plays?
Nominally, it seems likely that the Seahawks will line up Adams in a similar way to how they used Chancellor. It's the best place for Adams, who is an excellent hitter, a strong run defender and a devastating blitzer off the edge. According to Football Outsiders data, only two safeties made run stops more frequently than Adams did a year ago. Chancellor was stretched in coverage and was often targeted by teams when they wanted to try to go after somebody in the Legion of Boom at its peak, but Adams is better in coverage than Chancellor was.
StoryThe sad truth is that the Jets probably weren't going to be contending in the recent future, with or without Adams.
Which is why while i agree the Jets "Won" this trade by getting a haul.....what they do with that Haul will be interesting and probably underwhelming if history is any indications.I think I read that the Jets have traded 4 of their 5 first round picks from 2013-2017. Not great, Bob.
