Jamal Adams trade rumors began at the 2019 NFL Trade Deadline and have picked up once again. This time it’s the All-Pro safety making the request to seek a trade, per Manish Mehta on Twitter.
The New York Jets have said numerous times that Adams is in their plans for the future, yet no progress on an extension all off-season. In a move that surprised literally no one, the Jets picked up Adams’ 5th-year option for the 2021 season. While under contract for the next 2 season, Adams wants to be paid and rightfully so. Adams is one of the top safeties in football. According to overthecap.com Adams ranks as just the 25th paid safety based on yearly average. The likes of Vonn Bell, Ricardo Allen, Jeremy Chinn and Tre Boston are ranked ahead of Adams.
Jamal Adams has made quite a name for himself in the NFL. He was named to the 2017 All-Rookie Team, 2nd Team All-Pro in 2018, 1st Team All-Pro and Pro Bowl honors in 2018 and 2019. He is a proven player and deserves to get paid as such.
In 2019 Jamal Adams played in 14 games for the New York Jets. He racked up 74 tackles, 7 pass deflections, 6.5 sacks and a pick-six. If the New York Jets want to be any relevant and compete in a Brady-less AFC East they need to get an extension figured out with the All-Pro safety. The Buffalo Bills are coming off of a playoff birth with a very solid that has proven pieces on defense as well as a young and promising quarterback. The Miami Dolphins are no pushovers either, their roster is young and promising looking to make some noise in the fight for the division. Otherwise, the Jets remain in mediocrity. If the Jets do decide to trade the form number six overall pick there will be a good market. According to Adam Schefter Adams would welcome a trade to these teams:
