Seahawks BREAKING: Jamal Adams, Quandre Diggs Cut by Seattle

As head coach Mike Macdonald begins his first year at the helm, the Seattle Seahawks are making some big changes.

Per reports from Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, the Seahawks are set to release veteran safeties Quandre Diggs and Jamal Adams ahead of the new league year. The move will save Seattle $27.5 million in "cash and significant cap space."

"The Seahawks are releasing three-time Pro Bowl safeties Jamal Adams and Quandre Diggs, per sources. The moves save $27.5 million in cash and significant cap space for Seattle, which will look a lot different in the Mike Macdonald era," Pelissero tweeted.

Diggs, who has been with Seattle since arriving in a mid-season trade from the Detroit Lions in 2019, has become a fan favorite during his time in the Pacific Northwest. In 4 1/2 seasons with the Seahawks, the three-time Pro Bowler has started in all 72 games he's appeared in while posting 324 total tackles, 18 interceptions and a touchdown.

As for Adams, his time in Seattle never quite went as planned. A three-time Pro Bowler and one-time All-Pro, he arrived to the Seahawks in 2020 after a trade with the New York Jets. He had a strong first season in Seattle, but became limited by more injury issues, which allowed him to play in just 10 games over the past two seasons.

The Seahawks will now look to continue building their secondary around Devon Witherspoon and Riq Woolen headed into next season, with some additions via the draft a possibility as well.
