What’s in it for the New York Jets?
The New York Jets are intent on making Jamal Adams a “Jet for life” so why would they want to get rid of him?
Well, for one, when a player requests a trade it’s usually hard for things to work out between the player and the organization. Other players might start to question if Adams actually wants to be with the team. So, it’s probably best both for the Jets and for Adams if a deal is made before the season.
What would it take for the Jets to trade Jamal Adams?
"According to Robinson, ex-Cowboys star Michael Irvin and former Dallas and New York columnist Gary Myers, the Jets’ asking price is at least a first- and third-round pick. But it stands to reason the Jets could hold out for a lot more. After all, they have most of the leverage considering they can feasibly retain Adams through 2022 — and that Adams would be forfeiting money if he decided to hold out deep into the offseason. For reference, in 2019 the Jacksonville Jaguars got two first-rounders and a future fourth in exchange for Jalen Ramsey, a defensive back with a similar All-Pro pedigree and desire for a new deal. via Cody Benjamin and Jeff Kerr of CBS Sports"
A first and third in the same draft might be a bit too steep for the Tennessee Titans to give up for Jamal Adams considering their current safety situation is already pretty good. That doesn’t mean they can’t try to negotiate with the New York Jets, though.
There has been no concrete news of the Titans trying to negotiate, but as far as what’s in it for the Jets? Draft capital.
