Pairing Earl Thomas with Jamal Adams seems unfair to the rest of the NFL. It’s one thing to see it at the Pro Bowl… it’s a whole other story to see it in real football games.
Adams is what everyone wanted LaRon Landry to be: a freaky athlete at the safety spot who plays like a hitman. Adams probably has a 99 overall hit power rating in Madden. You can look up his highlights on YouTube and I’d be willing to bet the vast majority of them are him putting opposing offensive players in the turf.
The New York Jets and Adams have seemingly had a rocky relationship over the last year-or-so with trade rumors flying all over the place. Where there’s smoke there’s fire, and perhaps the team trading Adams away is the most likely of any player on this list. So, why not the Baltimore Ravens?
Once added to Baltimore’s defense, Adams would be perhaps its best player. Adams can quarterback the defense with his brilliance and make any and all plays needed. Adams can rush the passer, drop back in coverage, make the open field tackle, and everything in between. If you’re looking for the perfect safety, it likely looks like #33.
If you’re looking for someone who carries the mantra of “Play like a Raven,” then look no further than Jamal Adams. The man was born to be a Raven, so go out and get him no matter the cost.
