Seattle Seahawks safety Jamal Adams revealed he was told by someone the Dallas Cowboys think he struggles in coverage so they will try to use that to their advantage this Sunday. Adams, who is considered by many the best safety in the NFL, heard the talk and now he will be extra motivated when the Seahawks face the Cowboys on their home field this weekend.
"I've seen a couple things, they said I struggle in coverage, so I can't wait," a smiling Adams said, per ESPN. "I got a little text from one of my buddies back home. He has the inside scoop on that. So, looking forward to it."
When asked which Cowboys player or players said that, or who relayed the information to him, Adams didn't want to specify. "I can't tell you that, man," Adams said. "C'mon. I can't give you the nuggets like that, man.
I grew up with a couple guys who are still my brothers, best friends to this day. We talk every day, group messaging. What goes on in Dallas, it always comes back to me. I always find out the scoops. So just a little edge, a little chip on my shoulder to go out there and continue to do what I'm doing.
Obviously, things happen. It's part of the game. And hey, just looking forward to the matchup."
Adams respects Cowboys offense
The Cowboys have one of the most offensively gifted teams in the entire league and containing them isn't an easy task for any defense in the NFL.
Last week, the Cowboys were down 39-24 against the Atlanta Falcons with just less than five minutes to go in the game but then their offense scored 16 points in a hurry to stage a major comeback. The key parts of Cowboys offense are quarterback Dak Prescott and flashy wide receivers Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup and CeeDee Lamb.
Adams knows a tough task is ahead of Seahawks defense but he is ready for it. "We've got our hands full," Adams said. "It's going to be exciting. It reminds me of Atlanta in a sense of what type of explosion they have at receiver, if that makes sense.
Not comparing them, but just saying that they have some explosive guys on their side that can make a lot of plays. So we have to do a good job of doing our thing and plastering them and covering them."
