The Jamal Adams contract saga has been weighing on the minds of Seattle Seahawks fans all through training camp, but they can finally breathe a sigh of relief. The Seahawks inked Adams to a four-year, $70 million contract extension on Tuesday.

After a ton of back-and-forth between the two sides, what finally got Adams to put pen to paper? It turned out to be some stern words from his mother.

Anyone who has been chewed out by their mother knows how he must of felt when he got a notification of a text from his mom that started with "Jamal Lee Adams."

Of course, it probably wasn't too difficult to heed his mom's advice when she was pushing him to agree to contract that makes him the NFL's highest paid safety, averaging over $2 million per year more than anyone else at the position and carrying $38 million in practical guarantees.

Regardless, Pete Carroll and the rest of Seahawks Nation have to be feeling mighty thankful for Michelle Adams and her sage advice.
