Jamal Adams fired up about postseason berth for first time in career

The Seahawks clinched a playoff berth with Sunday’s 20-15 win over the Football Team, and the team’s biggest offseason acquisition is excited about it.

Seattle acquired Jamal Adams via trade over the summer, with the superstar safety successfully forcing his way out of New York after having been upset with the Jets coaching staff. And given that Adams was drafted by the Jets, he never had the opportunity to play in a meaningful game in January.

Until this season, that is.

Seattle clinched a playoff berth with Sunday’s Week 15 win, and the team is still in contention for the NFC West title. Adams was feeling jubilant about the opportunity, which he made clear in speaking to reporters after the game.

β€œHell, yeah!” Adams began. “That’s a hell of a feeling, man. I’m sorry, I’m not used to this. I’m used to sending my cards home, learning where I’m going next, where’s the vacation?!”

Adams is an ultracompetitive player, and playing in the postseason clearly means a lot to him.
