After trading two first round picks for Jamal Adams last year, the Seahawks have now signed the star safety to a record-setting contract that is set to keep him with the team through 2025. Seattle also frees up nearly $5 million in cap space by making the deal and hopefully it offers them flexibility to pay a couple other veteran players who would like to stay with the team beyond this season. We talk about how news from earlier in the week was an indication that both sides were ready to close the deal.
Seahawks backup players saw their first preseason action in Las Vegas on Saturday. Geno Smith took a monster hit which means we could see more of Alex McGough coming up against the Broncos. We talk about some of the challenges the team had against the Raiders and discuss whether the new preseason format will change how the Seahawks get their starting players prepared for the regular season. Finally, before the break, we talk a bit more about the overrated Arizona Cardinals to close out the Know Your Rival series.

Plus, a Better at Life nod for the person who helped seal the deal between Jamal Adams and the Seahawks.
