While New York Jets stated multiple times that they don’t intend to trade Pro Bowl safety Jamal Adams, rumors about the subject still continue to surface. But Jets’ fans shouldn’t be worried about losing one of their best players according to Adams’ teammate linebacker C.J. Mosley.
In a recent chat with ESPN, Mosley said that he doesn’t believe Jets’ will trade Adams since that would be a “crazy move.”
“To me, I wasn’t too worried about that,” said Mosley. “That would be a crazy move.”
According to Mosley, Adams is one of Jets’ leaders and a galvanizing presence that makes everyone on the team play better.
“To have that presence in the secondary, a guy that can make plays in the passing game and also plays in the backfield — in the box — that’s always exciting,” he added.
Since Jets drafted him sixth overall in 2017, Jamal Adams established himself as one of the best safeties in the league. He received Pro Bowl in the last two seasons while also earning First-team All-Pro honors in 2019. Despite this, however, Adams has been on the trading block for the past year.
Reportedly, Adams was close to joining Dallas Cowboys last year, but the move fell through in the last moment. Jets also had trade talks with other teams about the 24-year-old, but those didn’t get much traction due to the team’s high asking price.
In case the Jets don’t trade Adams this offseason, they will most likely have to pay him. According to reports, the player will skip the team’s voluntary programs and wants to get an extension before the start of the new season that would make him the highest-paid safety in the league.
