Jets star safety Jamal Adams requests trade

It wasn't all that long ago that the New York Jets had safety Jamal Adams hoping to be a "Jet for life".

Adams is also said to have the Cowboys, Ravens, Texans, Chiefs, Eagles, 49ers, and Seahawks on his not-so-short list. As Ralph Vacchiano of SNY.tv writes, the Jets' stance on the issue has not changed, and the team has no intention of trading him or allowing him to seek a trade on his own.

Adams is entering his fourth year in a Jets uniform, so he's now eligible for a long-term extension. And then last week, Adams called out the Jets for their lack of action on extending his contract, which ultimately prompted him to request a trade.

Adams was drafted by the Jets with the sixth overall pick out of LSU in 2017. Additionally, the Jets could use a franchise tag on Adams for 2022 if he plays out his current contract. Pat is about to get 40 to 60 M's a year. But don't compare me to QB's if you aren't paying me QB money. S**t, if I want to get about 40 plus u wouldn't hear a damn word from me. Well deserved. Great friend of mine. At the conclusion of his lengthy rant, Adams stated that he would protect himself "just like an organization will look out for themselves at the end of the day" and signed off with the statement: "Maybe it's time to move on!" You're lost my guy.

But it is hard to envision a divisional rival dealing away their best player to a player within the AFC East, and so the dreams of Adams player for Brian Flores are likely exactly that: dreams. Adams has made it known he wants a new contract before the 2020 season begins.

New York, which picked up the fifth-year option on Adams' contract in April, reportedly doesn't intend to trade him.

ESPN and the New York Daily News first reported Adams seeking a trade, while the two-time All Pro safety Adams appeared to indicate on Thursday he might be looking to play elsewhere.
