At this very moment I think you can make the case that this is the shakiest the Seattle Seahawks have been at cornerback since the 2010 season when they had a fading Marcus Trufant and Kelly Jennings as starters. Seattle will enter Week 1 of the 2021 season with neither of its 2020 Week 1 starters on the roster. Shaquill Griffin went to the Jaguars and Quinton Dunbar signed with the Lions.
In talking with new Seahawks pass rusher Kerry Hyder Jr., you get the sense that he wants to be wanted. To his credit, what player wouldn’t feel that way about his team? After all, unless you’ve been hiding under a rock, you’ve spent the bulk of the NFL offseason hearing about Russell Wilson’s frustration with the Seahawks’ failure to protect him with a top-ranked offensive line.
Part of why Adams was traded from the Jets was he was unhappy that the team didn’t want to discuss a long-term deal with him. Now, he has just one year remaining on his rookie deal and is set to enter free agency after the 2021 season. So should it be concerning that the Seahawks and Adams haven’t put pen to paper in terms of an extension?
