Deja vu? Remember how before the last year of Earl's contract he wanted a new long term contract due to injury concerns? He wanted guaranteed money locked up so if he were injured he would still get paid (Kam). For whatever reason, he decided to play anyway, hence the middle finger when he got hurt.
So, will Jamal play for Seattle next year without a new long term contract? And after seeing what happened to Earl with the same management, will that make it more likely the Jamal won't make the same mistake Earl did? And if Jamal holds out next year, who blinks first? I think Seattle needs him more next year than he needs us.
Perhaps JS should have locked him up to a 4 year contract before giving up so many draft picks? As far as what it is going to cost to re-sign Adams:
“(Adams) is going to be in that $20 million conversation and that’s why this negotiation is not going to be simple, because the Seahawks do not want to pay him that kind of money, they want to keep him as a safety,” Heaps said. “Jamal Adams, he ain’t buying it, he ain’t having it, especially when he has 9.5 sacks.”
