Jamal Adams tries to force a trade off the jets and choose his target.
Bold move with two years remaining on his contract.
The Jets had no intention of trading Adams when he started opting for a new contract earlier this off-season, and his trading request hasn’t changed, a source at the Post said.
The First-Team All-Pro is a talent that is worth having all teams ask Jets general manager Joe Douglas for the price. However, here are six logical landing sites (some according to Adams on Adams’ preferred list, others not). If the jets reverse course:
The cowboys have their own contract dispute: quarterback Dak Prescott wants a long-term extension, but will only leave $ 1
GM Howie Roseman is one of the most aggressive traders in the NFL and has an open line to his protégé Douglas. After Malcolm Jenkins’ loss in the independent agency, the converted cornerback Jalen Mills is expected to start safely. The combination of Adams with cornerback Darius Slay would create one of the best NFL secondaries. But the Eagles are expected to exceed $ 50.6 million in 2021 before another major order is added.
Adams is the prototype of this Smashmouth defense and wants to emulate Raven’s great Ed Reed. The ravens were reportedly dissatisfied with Earl Thomas’ free security even before he was arrested in May, although Adams is more of a strong security. The Ravens in which Douglas got through the ranks and maintains friends in the front office now have a cap of $ 9.1 million and $ 65.9 million in 2021.
The rebuilt jaguars have trading capital: six picks in the first four rounds of the 2021 NFL Draft, including additional first and quarter-finalists. The vaunted defense from the 2017 AFC championship game has been completely reduced and the team needs a face of the franchise. This would be a cold reminder of Adams that after three years as a professional, he can no longer choose his goal. Ask Odell Beckham if he wants to go to Cleveland.
It’s not Dallas, but Texas that Adams would welcome. It’s a shame for the Jets that the Texas trainer / general manager Bill O’Brien has already been prevented from selling the recipient DeAndre Hopkins to the Cardinals, otherwise he would have been the perfect second leg.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Defensive coordinator Todd Bowles – former Jets head coach – can ask to see you again and sell GM Jason Licht a perfect schematic match, but the Buccaneers have just called in second-round player Antoine Winfield for this position. They will soon have extensions for pass rusher Shaq Barrett and recipient Chris Godwin after loading this off-season with Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski to make money run dry quickly.
