Cowboys’ Dream of Landing S Jamal Adams Isn’t Completely Dead yet

There’s still a chance Jamal Adams could play for the Dallas Cowboys.

The Dallas Cowboys dream of landing Jamal Adams via trade from the New York Jets all but died a few days ago after the Seattle Seahawks pulled off a blockbuster trade to land the All-Pro safety. It was quite a gut punch to many around Cowboys Nation, however, they might not have to get up on that dream just yet.

Strangely enough, Adams and the Seahawks reportedly agreed to table contract talks until 2021, per Tom Pelissero of NFL Network. Even then, there’s no promise he has to agree to whatever they offer him at that point. He could very well become a free agent in just two short years.

WHAT!?

Upon learning this news I was completely floored. The Seahawks paid a pretty penny to trade for Jamal Adams. They sent Safety Bradley McDougald, a 2021 third-round pick, and two first-round picks (2021 + 2022) to the Jets in exchange for Adams and a 2022 fourth-round pick. That’s a lot of draft capital to give up for what basically could end up being just a two-year rental.

I’m completely flabbergasted the Seahawks would give up so much draft capital and not have some kind of long-term extension worked out with Jamal Adams prior to completing this trade. Now they only control his rights through the 2021 season. He will become a free agent after that and as such is free to sign with any team of his choosing.

Enter the Dallas Cowboys.

Jamal Adams hasn’t been shy about naming the Dallas Cowboys as his preferred team to play for. He did just about everything within his power to force the Jets to trade him with the hope the Cowboys would somehow be able to swoop in to save him from the purgatory that is New York. Sadly, that’s not the way things worked out.

Adams’ and the Dallas Cowboys dream of uniting isn’t quite dead just yet though. It might be prolonged for a few more seasons, but there’s still a very real possibility this is one of those scenarios where the dream actually becomes a reality.

If Jamal Adams truly wants to become the highest-paid safety in the league it probably behooves him to wait before agreeing upon a long-term extension. No doubt the 2021 salary cap is going to take quite hit because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Waiting until the salary cap increases or at the very least gets back to normal would be in his best interest. 2022, when he becomes a free agent, could very well be when all of that happens.

The Dallas Cowboys should have things with Quarterback Dak Prescott figured out by then and be in much better shape salary-cap wise. And as far as Jamal Adams is concerned, he will be just 26 years old then and still very much in the prime of his career. Could the stars be aligning?

All of this of course is hypothetical, out-of-the-box thinking on my part right now. The Seattle Seahawks could very well lock up Jamal Adams long-term in the next two years putting an end to all of this once and for all. However, if not, I’d be willing to bet my bottom dollar the Dallas Cowboys will once again be mentioned as the favorite to land Adams’ services.

Do you think the Cowboy still have a chance of landing Jamal Adams?

What do you think?

  1. Would not want ANOTHER problem child on the team. Adams ALREADY went on social media to COMPLAIN that Seahawks put him on “too early” a flight, 7am, to get to Seattle. Just a preview of the problems this guy will cause.

    What is this constant fascination with Adams anyway? Seattle was idiotic to give up all that for a Safety. Cowboys should have enough talent right NOW to make the post season. If they don’t, then the finger pointing, and the never ending excuses, will erupt.

    • How is Jamal Adams a “problem child”? He has never been in trouble on or off the field. He did what he had to do to either force the NY Jets to extend him long-term or trade him. I have no problem with the way he handled the entire situation and I think he would be a tremendous upgrade to the Cowboys defense as a whole, not just the secondary.

      • ASK THE JETS. Apparently you have not followed Adams closely enough. Refer to Gary b comments at 10:56 am. Also Adams comments on Drew Brees. NOT A PROBLEM???

  2. Unless I’m mistaken Adam’s was criticizing coaches left and right and sorta of forced Jets hand. Really the first tweet u send out regarding ur new team is to complain about an early flight? Sounds like a bit of a mouthy prima donna to me. Sure any teams defense would improve with him, but at what cost? Granted the Seahawks will be good so the 1st rounds picks will likely only be in the mid to high 20s but still a very high price to pay for one of the least important positions. Teams are built thru the draft so that’s alot of draft capital to part with. Not to mention the Jets got a starting caliber safety in the the deal.

  3. But I’ll argue the flip side just to play devils advocate. What are the chances the Jets find an elite player picking in the high 20s? though for life of me don’t know the why the Seahawks didn’t have a deal in place before trade, as he can in essence become a FA in 2 yrs plus they are looking at signing a SAFETY to a huge contract not a position I want taking a big bite of my cap.

  4. You’re either drunk, high or stupid (maybe a combination of all three) if you think the Hawks are going to let Adams go after two seasons. HE’S. NOT. GOING. TO. DALLAS.
