Seahawks coach Pete Carroll’s bold take on Jamal Adams trade amid season-ending injury
Adams is scheduled to undergo surgery due to a torn labrum after “significant damage” in the Seahawks’ win over the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.
The injury plus the step down in play from Jamal Adams ever since he arrived in Seattle had a few calling the trade that brought him over a lopsided one. The Seahawks traded away two first-round picks, with the upcoming one in 2022 looking might tasty for the New York Jets.
Pete Carroll, however, stood by the trade when asked about it on SiriusXM NFL Radio, calling it a “terrific trade for us.”
Carroll spoke on Adams’ injury as well, with words of encouragement for his sidelined safety.
Via Pro Football Talk:
“Unfortunately, he got hit just the wrong way and he’s going to have to get fixed up,” the Seahawks coach told reporters on Wednesday. “He’s been through this before and he’s really rocked by it, of course. We are all pulling for him to come out and get back at this thing as soon as possible. I’m really disappointed for him, as well as us.”
The Jamal Adams era in Seattle isn’t panning out the way most Seahawks fans hoped. With him reportedly eyeing a 100% recovery for next season, look for Adams to remind everyone why he was worth such a lofty trade package in the first place.
