According to ProFootballTalk.com, the Jets and Jamal Adams are in a contractual stalemate. The report claims Adams is a hard sell for the organization due to being under contract until 2021. Adams has been the most vocal party, while the team has been quiet.
“I’d be lying if I said I don’t expect to be extended,” Adams said last Super-Bowl weekend.
Joe Douglas then had to answer, and he did so with care, as the following statement proves.
“The plan is for Jamal to be a Jet for life,” Douglas said with emphasis, at the 2020 combine.
Jamal’s on a fifth-year option, which means the Jets can still franchise tag the All-Pro in 2022.
Last time Adams discussed with management, the Cowboys reached out. Suspecting need for a Safety, expect to see them offer the Jets for Adams, before the first day of practice. Ideally, the Jets capture multiple first-round picks, or a receiver, or a corner, or an offensive lineman. Whatever the team can acquire is a blessing. Adams could simply leave and give the Jets nil.
