Jamal Adams has made it clear he is going to play Saturday in his first career playoff game.
Jamal Adams spent three tumultuous seasons with the New York Jets before being traded to the Seattle Seahawks in July. His wish to play for a contender came true and now he is set to play in his first career playoff game.
The Seahawks are taking on the Los Angeles Rams this Saturday, and there was some concern about a shoulder injury that caused Adams to miss part of last week’s game. However, he has made it clear he is going to play.
Jamal Adams isn’t missing his first playoff game.
“No question in my mind, I’m playing, man,” Adams said Wednesday. He went on to explain how he actually wanted to return last week, but his helmet was taken away for his own good.
Adams was the No. 6 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft and was able to get out of New York just in time. Now he has moved past his impending contract extension being his main focus and appears to only be focused on chasing a Super Bowl this year. The money talks can wait a few months.
The safety was named to his third straight Pro Bowl this year thanks to his 9.5 sacks and all-around great performance. He has lived up to the hype on an actual contender and is a key piece in the Seattle defense.
Adams being on the field is huge and is going to cause problems for a Rams offense that may be without Jared Goff due to his thumb injury. Even if he is out there, the Seahawks remain clear favorites in the game.
Seattle wants to return to its past ways of having a legendary defense. Having Adams on the field is a great step toward making history once again and winning a Super Bowl.
