Seattle Seahawks safely Jamal Adams stands alone on the field during minicamp in June at VMAC in Renton.

A heist, a fleecing, a savage swindle — all seemingly fair descriptions of the Seahawks' Russell Wilson trade last March. Seattle gave up a quarterback that "led" the Broncos to the lowest point total in the NFL last season and received two first-round and two second-round picks along with impact players such as Noah Fant and Shelby Harris.

It helped put Seahawks coach Pete Carroll and general manager John Schneider back on the elite-executives list in the minds of the media — and there has been plenty of acclaim in this space as well. But as commended as that deal was, there was one a couple years earlier that has been criticized — the acquisition of safety Jamal Adams for two first-round picks and a third-rounder to boot.
