Titans agree to terms with S Jamal Adams

Free agent safety Jamal Adams agreed to terms on a contract with the Tennessee Titans on Thursday.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed by the team for Adams, however multiple media outlets reported it was a one-year contract.

Adams, 28, will be reunited with Titans defensive coordinator Dennard Wilson. The latter was his defensive backs coach during his Pro Bowl seasons in 2018 and 2019 with the New York Jets.

Adams, who also was named to the Pro Bowl in 2020 with the Seattle Seahawks, is expected to battle Amani Hooker and Elijah Molden for one of the starting safety positions with Tennessee.

Adams was released by the Seahawks on March 5 in a cost-cutting move. He was due a base salary of $16.5 million in 2024, per Spotrac.

Adams recorded 48 tackles while being limited to just nine starts in 2023 due to a concussion. The 2017 first-round pick (sixth overall) has posted 494 tackles, 21.5 sacks, seven forced fumbles and four interceptions in 80 games (all starts) with the Jets (2017-19) and Seahawks (2020-23).

After recording 9.5 sacks in his first season with Seattle in 2020, Adams sustained a season-ending injury in Week 12 of the 2021 season and played in only 10 total games the past two years.
