Report: Cowboys Were “Involved” In Jamal Adams Trade Talks

For the second time in the last few years, the Cowboys lost out on a game-changing safety who made it clear they wanted to be in Dallas, simply because the price tag got too high.

No matter your feelings on the Cowboys’ roster building as a whole, and even after seeing the haul of picks the Jets received in exchange for Adams, it’s still disappointing to see Dallas fail to upgrade to the very best at a position of need.

We should not think that the Cowboys weren’t at least calling on Jamal Adams, though.

ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler tweeted after the trade went down that the Seahawks (and parties involved) believed that both the Cowboys and 49ers were trying to land Adams as well. Our own John Williams has also heard rumors that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were trying to get in the mix as well.

Notes on Jamal Adams/Seahawks, per sources. Parties involved believed 49ers, Cowboys were both in. A deal now not stipulation for trade, can extend this year or next.Draft uncertainty a factor.All but closes book on Clowney.Team views Adams as weapon more than safety

This means that four of the top contenders in the NFC (at least on paper) were all trying to make a move to land the All Pro defensive player. In the end, the Seahawks won the fight for the star this time, potentially giving them a short-term edge over their division foes in San Francisco.

Still, as Jeremy Fowler mentioned, this deal also makes it highly unlikely that Jadeveon Clowney will return to the Seahawks this season.

Maybe this is where the Cowboys can land their own big fish, without needing to give up the draft capital to do so.

What do you think?

  1. Would have loved Adam’s but not for 2 number ones, maybe 1 one and a second or third round pick, burnout 2 ones, no way!

  2. Price tagg was way to high… 2 1’s (& 3rd)and he still wants 15 mill a yr at safety. Good business isn’t always praised, but the Jones made the right business decision.

  3. Great business decision by dem Boys!!! we are going great building through the draft on the cheap, signing 1-2 yr Free Agents (and getting comp pics) as hole fillers. Stay with the model.

  4. I’m glad we didn’t get Adams!! And I’m glad the talks are finally over!! The jets have always wanted too much for Adams and I’m glad we wasn’t the team stupid enough to give up all of that draft capital to get him!! Adams is good, but he’s not worth giving up a 1st and a 3rd, let alone two 1st and a 3rd plus a player!! The seahawks are stupid for giving up that much to get him, but again, I’m glad it wasn’t us!!

    • Great player but simply not worth the draft pucks. If you were to add his potential dalary to Dak’s, Zeke’s, Cooper’s and Lawrence’s would have left about 90 million left for the rest of the team. Throw in the offensive line and that leaves about 45 million for the rest of the 43 players. That’s a recipe for having less talent, no depth and a Cap disaster.
