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.
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.
