Head coach Pete Carroll said Monday that he expects Adams (shoulder) to be ready for training camp, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports. Adams suffered a torn labrum in his left shoulder in a Week 13 win over the Texans and underwent season-ending surgery in early December. He battled a left shoulder injury in 2020, too, so it's possible that this will be an ongoing concern for the All-Pro safety. Still, it's encouraging that he should be back in time for training camp. Adams will be an every-snap player as long as he's healthy in 2022. Prior to his injury this season, he racked up 87 tackles (56 solo), five pass breakups and two interceptions through 12 games.
Adams made nine tackles (six solo), two pass breakups and an interception in Monday's 17-15 loss to Washington. Adams now has a career-high two interceptions this season, both of which were generated in the last three weeks. The 2017 first-round pick has often been criticized for his coverage skills. Adams now has 83 stops (54 solo) through 11 games, matching last year's mark. He will continue to be a high-end IDP contributor as long as he stays healthy.
Adams (groin) is a game-time decision for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports. Adams was added to the injury report with a groin issue Thursday, and he's officially listed as questionable for Week 11. He'll presumably test things out in pregame warmups Sunday before the Seahawks determine his status.
Adams reached an agreement Tuesday with the Seahawks on a contract extension worth $70 million over four years, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. There was talk Adams would attempt to reclassify as a linebacker instead of a safety for franchise tag purposes if the two sides were unable to break their stalemate. Instead, Adams appears to have agreed to the terms of the Seahawks' last offer, which included $38 million in guarantees. There may be some language in the contract itself that now made it amenable for Adams to put pen to paper, but either way he's become the highest paid safety in the league. With his future settled, he'll begin fully practicing with the team after being mainly a spectator at training camp until now.
Following an excused absence from June minicamp, the Seahawks expect Adams to show up for the start of training camp in late July, NFL.com's Grant Gordon reports. Adams is scheduled to play out 2021 under the fifth-year option on his rookie contract, but he likely is aiming for a long-term extension that will make him the highest-paid safety in the NFL. While comments from coach Pete Carroll suggest the Seahawks aren't expecting a holdout, Adams could have other ideas if negotiations don't progress over the next few weeks. He should be healthy for the start of camp, coming back from January surgery on a torn labrum in his left shoulder. Adams had 83 tackles and 9.5 sacks in only 12 games last season, making a big splash in his first year with the Seahawks. In three years with the Jets, he averaged 91 tackles, 8.3 pass defenses, 4.0 sacks and 2.0 forced fumbles.
