Jamal Adams on being shopped by Jets: ‘I didn’t take that lightly’
Jamal Adams has made it clear that he was not pleased with the New York Jets shopping him in trade talks ahead of the deadline, and the Pro Bowl safety spoke more about that with reporters on Wednesday.
Adams said he took it personally when he found out the Jets were considering trading him, as he views himself as a franchise cornerstone who has done everything the team has asked of him. He also compared himself to Tom Brady and Aaron Donald, noting how the New England Patriots and Los Angeles Rams have never entertained trade offers for those players.

Adams was also critical of Jets GM Joe Douglas on Twitter for misleading him about the trade deadline. He said Wednesday that he is not ready to speak with Douglas about it but is still excited to be a leader for the Jets going forward.
Like many others in New York, this has been a frustrating season for Adams. He was reportedly open to being traded to one team, but he’s not happy with the way the Jets handled the situation.
