Titans Signing Former All-Pro Seattle Seahawks Safety Jamal Adams

The Tennessee Titans are heading into 2024 with a brand-new look. The team relieved head coach Mike Vrabel of his duties after the 2023 season and brought in former Cleveland Browns offensive coordinator Brian Callahan to run the team.

The defense also has a new coordinator in Dennard Wilson, who most recently served as the defensive backs coach for the Baltimore Ravens in 2023.

Wilson and the front office for the Titans have been plenty busy this offseason, adding tons of players at every position. Some of the most notable have been cornerbacks L’Jarius Sneed and Chidobe Awuzie, and linebacker Kenneth Murray. Now, the team has signed an All-Pro safety.

The Titans officially announced they are signing Jamal Adams to a one-year deal. Adams most recently played for the Seahawks, and he will now be rejoining the AFC.

Adams initially began his career with the New York Jets in 2017, when the team drafted him No. 6 overall in the 2017 NFL Draft. Adams came highly rated out of LSU, and would spend the 2017-19 seasons with the Jets. There, he would rack up two interceptions, six forced fumbles, 12 sacks, 25 passes defended, 273 tackles, and 28 tackles for loss.

Adams would be named a Pro Bowler in 2018, 2019 and 2020. He would also land Second-team All-Pro honors in 2018 and 2020, and First-Team All-Pro honors in 2019.

In 2020, Adams was traded to the Seahawks for two first-round picks and a third-round pick in exchange for a fourth-round pick and safety Bradley McDougald.

Adams became a central figure in the secondary for the Seahawks, amassing two interceptions, 11 passes defended, one forced fumble, 9.5 sacks, 221 tackles, 22 tackles for loss, and 19 quarterback hits.

In 2023, Adams only started and played in nine games, securing two passes defended and 48 tackles. Though his production has dipped heavily, he is still among the most proven veteran safeties in the NFL.

Adams is also only 28 years old and now has a chance to resuscitate his career with the Titans.

The Titans haven’t made the playoffs since 2021, when they secured a 12-5 record, but lost in the Divisional Round of the playoffs to the Cincinnati Bengals. The Titans would then go 7-10 in 2022 and 6-11 in 2023.

The team became an AFC powerhouse under Vrabel, but have since lost their touch. They will now look to return to the playoffs and have made a ton of moves to improve their defensive capabilities for that to happen. Adding Adams one a one-year deal could become a sneaky good move if he returns to form in 2024.
