It’s one of the biggest stories during an otherwise slow time on the NFL calendar. New York Jets All-Pro safety Jamal Adams is currently engaged in a contract stalemate with his team.

The No. 6 overall pick back in 2017, Adams is now open to a trade. Talks between the two sides have broken down. He’s not happy.

Fresh off a previous suggestion that it would cost the equivalent of a fully-loaded Brinks Truck to acquire Adams in a trade, comes this report.

According to Ralph Vacchiano of SNY, the Jets have no plans to trade Adams.

This could be nothing more than a negotiating tactic targeting both Adams and any team who might call the Jets up about a potential trade.

Things are not getting better between the two sides after a 2019 season that was defined by a rift between Adams and the Jets’ front office as well as countless trade rumors.

Adams, 24, is among the best defensive players in the game. As the Jets look to become relevant in the wide-open AFC East, there’s no way they can justify balking at extending the former LSU star. Trading Adams would be even harder for the organization to justify.
