Seahawks Release Jackson , Hunt and Aquired Jamal Adams
RENTON, Wash. (AP) — The Seattle Seahawks released veterans Branden Jackson and Joey Hunt, among nine players released by the team. But it was a bit of a surprising move after Hunt started eight games last season following a season-ending injury to Justin Britt. Seattle added B.J. Finney in free agency and reserve Ethan Pocic also has experience at center. Jackson appeared in 15 games last season for Seattle and had two sacks. He appeared in 36 games over three seasons for the Seahawks.
NEW YORK (AP) — The New York Jets have traded disgruntled star safety Jamal Adams to the Seattle Seahawks. New York parts ways with a talented player whose relationship with the franchise quickly deteriorated because of a contract dispute. The Jets received a massive haul in the stunning deal Saturday. They sent a 2022 fourth-round draft pick along with Adams to the Seahawks for a 2021 first-rounder, a 2022 first-rounder, a 2021 third-rounder and safety Bradley McDougald — all pending physicals. The deal ended a contentious several months for Adams and the Jets.
