“Pass-rushing ability is what helps separate Adams from the pack at the safety position,” Brandt starts. “Not only did he break Adrian Wilson’s single-season sack record for a defensive back by collecting 9.5 for the Seahawks in 2020, but he did it in just 12 games. Adams is also just nine sacks short of topping Rodney Harrison’s career record for sacks by a defensive back (30.5, the most since sacks were first tracked in 1982).
“Adams is about to become the highest-paid safety in NFL history — and he deserves it.”
The Seahawks and Adams have yet to agree on a contract extension just yet, but if one comes, it will most certainly be a doozie.
