There was a lot of buzz surrounding the former LSU man, Jamal Adams, in the 2020 offseason. He was being courted by a host of top NFL teams and ultimately ended up joining Pete Carroll’s Seattle Seahawks.
Since joining, Adams has won both of his games with his new team over the last two weeks. The in-form Seattle-based franchise plays the Dallas Cowboys in Week Two.
Here’s what former Texas native Jamal Adams had to say about this week’s opponents.
Summer recruit Jamal Adams spoke at length ahead of the upcoming game between the Seahawks and the Cowboys. Here’s what the in-form safety had to say about Sunday’s opponents.
Adams revealed he has some friends in his hometown who’ve been giving him some inside developments on the Cowboys.
He said, “I’ve seen a couple things, they said I struggle in coverage, so I can’t wait. I got a little text from one of my buddies back home. He has the inside scoop on that. So, looking forward to it.
“I can’t tell you that, man. C’mon. I can’t give you the nuggets like that, man. I grew up with a couple guys who are still my brothers, best friends to this day. We talk every day, group messaging. What goes on in Dallas, it always comes back to me.”
Star quarterback Russell Wilson has been terrific for the Seahawks this year. In fact, he’s already been touted as the frontrunner for this year’s NFL MVP award. Adams is confident that his team has what it takes to overcome the Cowboys at the AT&T Stadium.
“I always find out the scoops. So just a little edge, a little chip on my shoulder to go out there and continue to do what I’m doing. Obviously, things happen. It’s part of the game. And hey, just looking forward to the matchup.
“We’ve got our hands full. It’s going to be exciting. It reminds me of Atlanta in a sense of what type of explosion they have at receiver, if that makes sense.
“Not comparing them, but just saying that they have some explosive guys on their side that can make a lot of plays. So we have to do a good job of doing our thing and plastering them and covering them,” Adams concluded.
Seahawks start the game against the Cowboys as favorites as per NFL oddsmakers. However, Mike McCarthy’s boys must be feeling invincible post their emphatic 40-39 win over the Falcons last weekend.
This game promises to be a thriller, so make sure you tune in on Sunday.
