Report: Jamal Adams would not demand extension from teams on trade list

Jamal Adams

Jamal Adams does not want to play for the New York Jets this season if they do not sign him to a contract extension, but apparently the Pro Bowl safety would not hold his new team to the same standard if the Jets agree to trade him.

Adams has requested a trade both privately and publicly, and he presented the Jets with a list of eight teams to which he would welcome a trade. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, those eight teams are the ones that Adams would be willing to play for in 2020 without a contract extension in place.

Adams still has two years remaining on his rookie deal with New York, so his only real leverage is to become a headache. It’s interesting that he is open to playing for a new team without an extension but will not make the same concession for the Jets. That speaks to the current relationship between Adams and the team.

While Adams is willing to play for eight teams, he seems to have revealed over the weekend that he places one team above the others.

Adams is set to make $3.5 million this season. The Jets exercised the fifth-year option for him at just under $13 million, but he wants a long-term deal. He is clearly unhappy, but it doesn’t seem at this point like the Jets are in a hurry to trade him.
