Baltimore Ravens pass on former Seahawks All-Pro

The Baltimore Ravens’ next target at safety is now out of the question, as former All-Pro Jamal Adams has signed with the Tennessee Titans, reports ESPN’s Turron Davenport.

Adams, 28, briefly visited the Ravens in May but left without a contract. Even after that visit, speculation about the three-time Pro Bowl pick in Baltimore continued to swirl.

“Him and I, at the Pro Bowl about four years ago, when we were there, we rode the bus back and forth every day for some reason, and we kind of became buddies,” coach John Harbaugh told reporters May 22. “We had a good time and kind of continued that relationship. Then we came back and met up. He met up with a lot of people, but he met up in my office and we had another great conversation. (I was) very impressed, very impressed with his attitude, let’s see what happens.”

Drafted sixth overall out of LSU in 2017, Adams has had an interesting journey throughout his career. He showed great promise early on, earning Pro Bowl honors in 2018 and 2019 while also finding success all over the field. He was then part of a blockbuster trade to the Seattle Seahawks and even set a record for sacks by a defensive back with 9.5 in 2020.

Since then, though, it’s been a bumpy ride, to say the least. Adams has been plagued by injuries throughout his tenure in Seattle, even missing nearly the entire 2022 season with a torn quadriceps. He only played in nine games last year while recovering from said quadriceps injury, and the Seahawks ultimately released him in March.

Additionally, Adams’ defensive issues have become more apparent over time. With the Jets, he allowed a passer rating of around 75, but with the Seahawks, that number often topped 100. Last season was his worst on defense, as he allowed 25 passes on 31 targets for 175 yards and two touchdowns. Considering how poorly he’s doing on defense, he’s more of a linebacker than a safety at this point.

With Adams heading to Nashville, the Ravens will have to look elsewhere for backups behind Kyle Hamilton and Marcus Williams.
