Jets star Jamal Adams not on speaking terms with GM

There’s certainly some hurt feelings in New Jersey one day after the NFL trade deadline.

Leading up to the deadline Tuesday afternoon, Pro Bowl New York Jets safety Jamal Adams was bandied about as trade bait. In fact, a deal seemed close between the Jets and Dallas Cowboys involving the third-year safety.

Adams noted following the deadline that he was unhappy the Jets went behind his back and had trade discussions surrounding the former top-10 pick.

The Pro Bowler now says that he is not on speaking terms with first-year Jets general manager Joe Douglas.

That’s probably not the best of news for a one-win Jets team set to take on the Miami Dolphins in the matter of days.

Adams had previously noted that he told the Jets’ brass he was happy with the organization. He now believes Douglas and Co. went behind his back to dangle the star safety as trade bait.

For his part, Douglas stated after the deadline that he didn’t make any calls to other teams about his players.

That seemed to sit perfectly well with running back Le’Veon Bell. However, the face of the Jets’ defense is none too happy. It could lead to further drama in Jersey as the Jets finish up what promises to be another lost season for the long-downtrodden organization.
