49ers ‘believed’ to be in on Jamal Adams before trade sent him to division-rival Seahawks

Jul 25, 2020 at 2:04 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers, along with the Dallas Cowboys, were "believed" to be among the teams involved in trade discussions for Jamal Adams before the New York Jets sent the All-Pro safety to the division-rival Seattle Seahawks, according to Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.


And boy, did the Seahawks have to give up a lot to pry him away from the Jets.

In addition to safety Bradley McDougald, Seattle sent a first-round pick in 2021, another first-rounder in 2022, and a third-round pick in 2021. Plus, at some point, the Seahawks will need to give Adams the long-term contract he desires, making him the highest-paid safety in football.

The move was likely at least partially motivated by San Francisco's dominant play last season. The two teams split their regular-season series, but the 49ers narrowly won the Week 17 matchup at CenturyLink Field, winning the NFL West in the process.


Fowler's report is the first potential confirmation of a rumor by a Sports Illustrated writer earlier this month that San Francisco "had preliminary discussions" with the Jets about the disgruntled defender. The 49ers, along with the Seahawks and Cowboys, were among the teams Adams mentioned as desirable trade destinations.

Now, San Francisco will have to face Adams at least twice a year moving forward. While the move does potentially create a fluctuation in the balance of power within the NFC West, the addition came at a high cost for Seattle.

Maybe Jimmy Garoppolo will be the San Francisco 49ers quarterback next season. Head coach Kyle Shanahan said on Tuesday that he expects that to be the case. "I expect Jimmy to be our starter next year," Shanahan told reporters. "I mean, I expect him to come play with us this year (after he recovers from his ankle injury). We have six games left. We are not out of the playoffs yet. I've been on a team that was 3-6 going into a bye week that ended up winning their division. "I think we have guys on this team capable of finishing this the right way. We've got to do it one game at a time, and I hope Jimmy can come back and be a part of that. But to think that we've

All football energy flows through the Great Magnet, and he has decided the San Francisco 49ers will endure more than their fair share of pitfalls and anguish this season. The 49ers began Week 9 already a hobbled franchise and were further undercut when wide receiver Kendrick Bourne tested positive for COVID-19 last Wednesday. Shortly after, tackle Trent Williams and wide receivers Deebo Samuel and Brandon Aiyuk also landed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list. Only fools attempt to defy the negative energy that has gripped this rotten year. I'm not privy to head coach Kyle Shanahan's game strategy, but the laundry list of players out last
