That’s a pretty good return for a talented but disgruntled player who is getting expensive in next couple of years.

Jamal shot his way out of town which is disappointing. Pretty good return considering that.

That's more than the Bears paid for Khalil Mack:

Bears received:
Mack
2020 second-round pick (tight end Cole Kmet at No. 43)
2020 seventh-round pick (offensive lineman Arlington Hambright at No. 226)

Bears traded away:
2019 first round (running back Josh Jacobs at No. 24 by Raiders)
2019 sixth round (cornerback Blessuan Austin at No. 196 by Jets)
2020 first round (cornerback Damon Arnette at No. 19 by Raiders)
2020 third round (receiver Bryan Edwards at No. 81 by Raiders)

2 1st round picks for a safety, plus the 4th for a 3rd swap? That's a great deal for the Jets, even ignoring the fact that he had asked out.

I wonder if some teams are devaluing picks in 2021 due to Covid. If CFB gets shortened or compromised in any way those picks really become even bigger lottery tix than usual. Joe Burrow might not be a first rd pick let alone first overall in 2020 if Covid was a year earlier.

Is Seattle confused about the position Adams plays?
Barnwell has a piece talking about him sort of playing LB and Edge:

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.

Barnwell also uncorked quite a typo that no one at ESPN fixed:

The sad truth is that the Jets probably weren't going to be contending in the recent future, with or without Adams.

The franchise tag number for safeties is $12.7 million, which is lower than most positions. I don’t know how willing the Seahawks will be to play hardball with Adams after giving up two 1sts to land him, but he should end up earning a lot less than guys like Khalil Mack or Jalen Ramsey.

But yeah, unless you think Adams is going to be a generational talent like Ed Reed or Earl Thomas, you’ve got to love this deal for the Jets.

I think I read that the Jets have traded 4 of their 5 first round picks from 2013-2017. Not great, Bob.
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.

As a pats fan we rarely go wrong expecting the jets to screw up draft picks.
