This Jets-Seahawks Trade Involving Le'Veon Bell and Jamal Adams Would Be Absolutely Epic

Not only have the New York Jets done little to squash trade rumors surrounding Le'Veon Bell, but star safety Jamal Adams wants out, listing seven playoff contenders that he wants to be traded to.

The Seattle Seahawks, who need help both in the secondary and in the backfield, could be a spot for both Adams and Bell if the Jets pull the plug on these two.

With two talented players changing hands, even though Bell has a ton of money coming his way due to his contract, the Jets should still look to recoup a first-round pick from Seattle, as Bell and Adams would give a run-centric offense and Cover 3 heavy defense an elite safety and running back concurrently for the first time in years.

The Seahawks have clearly shown they aren't all in on Chris Carson, as the signing of Carlos Hyde and the selection of Miami's DeeJay Dallas in the fourth round of the draft added tons of new competition for the former Oklahoma State star. Carson would give the Jets someone that can rip off more big plays out of the backfield than ageless wonder Frank Gore or rookie La'Mical Perine.

If Seattle flips a seldom-used backup like defensive lineman Branden Jackson to the Jets in exchange for a late-round pick in this deal, the financial end of things will work out for John Schneider and both Bell and Adams will be Seahawks.

Blowing up a team built around a young quarterback and a solid defense would a move most GMs would never make, but Joe Douglas hasn't one much to squash rumors surrounding either of these two. Packaging them to Seattle could help the Jets maximize the return they get in exchange for these two stars.
