Seattle Seahawks star safety Jamal Adams has officially passed his physical examination and has been removed from the PUP list, signaling his readiness for the upcoming 2023 NFL season.

The announcement comes after Adams missed the entirety of last year’s 2022 season, sidelined since Week 1 due to an injury.

Adams’ impact on the field cannot be overstated. During the 2021 season, following his trade from the New York Jets, the dynamic safety showcased his prowess with an impressive 9.5 sacks in just 12 starts for the Seahawks.

His versatility shines in both run support and pass-rushing, making him an invaluable asset for Seattle’s defensive strategy.

The Seahawks’ defense faced challenges last season, allowing the seventh-highest yardage and eighth-most points per game.

With Adams’ return to the active roster, combined with the leadership of returning captain Bobby Wagner, the team is poised to make significant improvements on the defensive front.

The synergy between Adams and Wagner is expected to provide a formidable backbone for the Seahawks, bolstering their overall defensive capabilities.
