Jets Do Not Plan To Trade Jamal Adams

Jamal Adams' current deal will see him earn $3.5m in 2020 rising to $9.9m in his fifth year

Reports are circulating that the New York Jets and star Safety Jamal Adams. As such, the two sides discussed the possibility of a trade earlier this week, but as Ralph Vacchiano of SNY.tv writes, the Jets have no intention of trading Adams.

The 24-year-old, a two-time Pro Bowl selection since being taken by NY with the sixth overall pick in 2017, is entering his fourth season and is due to make $3.5m in 2020.

It's not clear whether Adams would agree to continue playing on his rookie deal for a trade suitor, although that could be part of the conversation if a cap-strapped team inquires.

At last season's trade deadline, reports surfaced that the Jets had entertained offers for Adams, leaving Adams furious despite the club holding onto him. While the Jets brass has emphasized the word voluntary, it seemed like Adams was attempting to send a message to the front office.

Adams, 24, is due to make $3.5 million this year and is eligible for a contract extension as he has completed his third season. He's been paid $18.75 million since being selected by the Jets sixth overall in the 2017 NFL Draft.

Sources have told ESPN.com's Rich Cimini that the Jets let Adams know they prefer to wait on a long-term extension.

Adams has 273 tackles, 12 sacks, six forced fumbles, and two interceptions in three seasons with the Jets. Adams reportedly believes NY is dragging its feet, prompting trade speculation. As NFL Network's Michael Irvin reported, the price tag for Adams is indeed a first- and a third-round draft pick. Extending Adams would be the cherry on top for Douglas' first offseason at the helm of New York's front office, but it doesn't sound like a new deal is happening right away.
