New Seahawks safety Jamal Adams’ former defensive coordinator with the New York Jets caught some attention with a comment last week.

Is Jamal Adams really better than Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor?

“Jamal may get bored there because they don’t use their safety-type things with all the complexities,” Gregg Williams said about the Seahawks, “… maybe not showing what they’re doing as much as we do.”

That raised quite a few eyebrows, with several on social media essentially pointing at a metaphorical scoreboard. The Seahawks haven’t had a losing season since 2011 and have made the playoffs in all but one of the last eight years. The Jets, meanwhile, haven’t made the postseason since 2010 and have finished over .500 just once since then.

Adams had a chance to respond to Williams’ comments Monday morning on 710 ESPN Seattle’s Danny and Gallant, and he certainly did.

“G-dub, man, he definitely misses me – I would have to say that a lot of them miss me over there,” Adams said. “I don’t think I’m gonna get bored winning. So that’s how I look at it. I’m gonna be alright.”

Adams came to the Seahawks in a blockbuster trade last month, a move that came after he reportedly requested a trade from the Jets.

A two-time Pro Bowler with the Jets and a 2019 All-Pro, Adams quickly became a star for New York after being drafted sixth overall in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft out of LSU.

Seattle sent veteran safety Bradley McDougald, a first-round pick in each of the next two drafts and a third-round pick in 2021 for Adams and a 2022 fourth-round selection.

Adams covered much more in his interview, which you can listen to in full in the podcast embedded below or read about in this takeaways post.
