NEW YORK (AP) — The New York Jets have traded disgruntled star safety Jamal Adams to the Seattle Seahawks.

New York parts ways with a talented player whose relationship with the franchise quickly deteriorated because of a contract dispute. 

The Jets received a massive haul in the stunning deal Saturday. 

They sent a 2022 fourth-round draft pick along with Adams to the Seahawks for a 2021 first-rounder, a 2022 first-rounder, a 2021 third-rounder and safety Bradley McDougald — all pending physicals. 

The deal ended a contentious several months for Adams and the Jets.

So far, the Seahawks are being very supportive of the trade.

And McDougald tweets to the Jets that he's ready to play.
