NFL Insider Has Strong Stance On What 2021 Season Means For Russell Wilson, Seahawks
After a tiff earlier in the offseason, Russell Wilson has assured everyone that he and the Seattle Seahawks are on the same page. For a few weeks it looked like he may join Aaron Rodgers and Deshaun Watson in the ranks of the disgruntled superstar quarterbacks. Instead, everything has been smoothed over…for now at least. […] The post NFL Insider Has Strong Stance On What 2021 Season Means For Russell Wilson, Seahawks appeared first on The Spun.
Safetyis in attendance at training camp for the Seahawks as he seeks a new contract with the team. However, Adams is following the same script that linebacker used when he got his most recent contract extension from Seattle in 2019. Adams is in camp with the Seahawks but not taking part in practices to begin camp.
While Adams is working his way back from offseason surgeries on his shoulder and fingers, it appears as though Adams is doing a de facto “sit-in” as he awaits a new deal with the team.
The Seahawks acquired Adams last year before training camp, sending two first-round picks, a third-round pick and safetyto the New York Jets in exchange for Adams and a 2022 fourth-round pick. Adams set an NFL record for most sacks in a single season by a defensive back with 9.5 in his first year in Seattle. Injuries helped contribute to him having some struggles as a pass defender at times.
NYC mayoral candidate Eric Adams considers living in Bedstuy and Gracie Manson if elected: ‘I love Brooklyn’
The Brooklyn borough president suggested Monday that he may live out of his Bedstuy apartment if elected mayor instead of staying full time at the Upper East Side’s palatial Gracie Mansion. “I love Brooklyn, and so it may be a combination of Gracie Mansion and my place in Brooklyn, Bedford-Stuyvesant,” Adams, a Brownsville native, said in an interview on WNYC’s “Brian Lehrer Show.”Adams, who’s widely expected to beat Republican mayoral candidate Curtis Sliwa in the Nov. 2 general election, added, “First we need to win, then we’ll decide what the proper address will be.
Nevertheless, Wagner says it was a big addition for the team to get Adams last year.
“He had an extraordinary impact,” Wagner said on Thursday. “You guys saw it from practice last year. You saw the energy that he brought on the field. And that was one way. Obviously, the blitzing. His energy is so contagious and makes you want to step your game up.”
As Adams follows a similar path to Wagner, the 10-year Seattle linebacker says he supports Adams quest for a new deal as he enters the final year of his contract.
“He’s somebody that we were fortunate to get, fortunate to have,” Wagner said. “And we can’t wait for him to be back out there on the field. He’s deserving of everything that he’s looking for. And we as players support him.”
Head coach Pete Carroll said Wednesday they’re hoping to get a deal with Adams done soon.
“He’s in a good place,” Carroll said. “They’ve worked really hard to this point. I’m very hopeful that it’s going to get taken care of here soon, very soon.”

Tyreek Hill vs. Davante Adams: Which top-tier WR should you draft first in fantasy football? .
Should you take Tyreek Hill or Davante Adams in the first round of your fantasy football draft? Starting your team with a non-RB can be nerve-racking, but each WR presents a strong case to be the first WR off the board in 2021.By the nature taking one in the late part of the first round (around pick 10), you'll soon be on the clock again in snake drafts. At least one high-quality running back will still be on the board, but you could also go with another stud WR or TE Travis Kelce. Either way, locking in Adams or Hill gives your team an advantage at the WR position week-in and week-out.
