Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is extremely excited about the addition of safety Jamal Adams to the team as he believes the two-time Pro Bowler is one of the players in the NFL. Adams, who made the First-team All Pro this past season, was traded from the New York Jets to the Seahawks last month after months of publicly trying to work his way out of New York.
"Jamal’s a fiery guy. I love him,” Wilson said, per Pro Football Talk. “He’s passionate about the game, he’s one of the best players in the game, for sure, one of the best defensive players.
He can do it all. He’s got the energy, he’s got the passion, he’s got the energy, he’s got the knowledge. He brings something, for sure, to our team, not just for the defense, for our whole football team.
He’s a great leader. He’s going to be a great football player for a long time. I’m glad he’s on our team”. Jets defensive coordinator Gregg Williams thinks Adams may get 'bored' in Seahawks defensive scheme Jets defensive coordinator Williams insists the Adams departure won't change much in the team's defensive scheme.
"It really doesn't. We're very multiple with how we do those things anyway," Russell Wilson said
"Jamal may get bored there because they don't use their safety-type things with all the complexities ...
uh, maybe not showing what they're doing as much as we do. "We'll still do a lot of the same exact things, but we'll highlight the people we have here. As you saw what we did [last season], he had maybe his most productive year here because of how we highlighted the skill set he has.
"I've had a lot of really, really good guys at that position. Over the years, I've had a lot of good safeties to be able to build things around. Now it's the next man up." Seahawks coach Pete Carroll saw the comments of Jets defensive coordinator Williams and he didn't appear to take them too seriously.
"We don't make as many mistakes as he does," Carroll said. "Let's let him have a chance to come back. We might as well do something coast to coast. That will be fun." "Gosh, we're so simple here and basic that we probably won't get to any of that stuff. That might be a good idea. Thanks for bringing it up."
