Jamal Adams Chatter Heats Up as NFL Draft Approaches

Jamal Adams Chatter Heats Up as NFL Draft Approaches

by April 20, 2020 0 comments

Over the last few weeks, there has been plenty of news circulating about the potential of the Jets solving their sticky Jamal Adams situation. Adams has expressed his displeasure with the Jets on several occasions but has also said that he loves New York and would love to remain a Jet for life.

Adams has quickly created a very confusing situation for the team to gauge but there finally seems to be some clarity.

General manager Joe Douglas has said several times that he will undoubtedly kick the tires on his end about a potential extension after he has the draft squared away. This makes sense from an organizational standpoint, but Adams might not be as content with this choice. The longer the Jets wait, the more they risk the loss of interest on Adams’s end. The less interest from Adams, the higher his price tag will be.

Adams will presumably want his contract to make him the highest-paid safety in NFL history. With that in mind, the current highest-paid safety ever is Eddie Jackson of the Bears, who takes in $14.6 million per year. Adams will want more money than that on a deal north of five years. Presumably, he would be seeking a deal between $80 million and $100 million, which is a bit hefty for a safety. Of course, Adams is one of just two safeties from the 2017 draft class or later to be dubbed a First-Team All-Pro (along with Jackson).

Time will tell what the verdict will be, but this is an intriguing situation to watch.
