Seahawks Football 101: The emergence of Ugo Amadi

Dec 15, 2020, 5:11 PM | Updated: Dec 17, 2020, 2:34 pm

There was plenty for Seahawks fans to be happy about in Sunday’s 40-3 blowout win over the winless New York Jets, but it provides a good opportunity to shine a light on a younger player enjoying a good second year in the NFL.

Heaps: Seahawks fans shouldn’t be cynical about blowout of Jets

That would be defensive back Ugo Amadi, a fourth-round pick by Seattle out of Oregon in the 2019 NFL Draft. He had a few notable plays against the Jets that caught the eye of 710 ESPN Seattle’s Dave Wyman.

In this week’s edition of Football 101, Wyman breaks down what jumped out to him about Amadi as he watched from his perch alongside Steve Raible, the voice of the Seahawks, as they called the game for the Seahawks Radio Network at Lumen Field on Sunday.

For more on Amadi’s emergence in 2020, check out this story from earlier this month. And for more Football 101 videos from Wyman, the former NFL linebacker and current co-host of 710 ESPN Seattle’s Wyman and Bob, click any of the links below.
