On Friday morning, ESPN Insider Adam Schefter reported that New York Jets safety Jamal Adams could very well be placed on the trade block yet again.
The Jets entertained offers for All-Pro safety Jamal Adams at last year’s trade deadline; might be a name to monitor again during draft week. https://t.co/ScBUoLoiVr

Adams is coming off a season in which he found himself on the block at the deadline despite being one of the more productive strong safeties in football.
If he’s on the block, there should be a handful of teams interested in his services. Let’s take a look at three teams that should trade for him.
Note: By the way, whoever gets Adams, it does not matter the price and it will be a steal to have a piece like that on your defense.
The Dallas Cowboys are hurting very badly in the secondary, having already lost Byron Jones due to free agency to the Miami Dolphins.
The Cowboys, over the years, have signed a bunch of cheap safeties in Jeff Heath and just recently signed Ha Ha Clinton-Dix this offseason. If the Cowboys can get an ‘in the box’ safety like Adams on their team, this defense instantly improves from good to great.
In the draft, they will only have to focus on getting a cornerback.
The Houston Texans have made some questionable trades over the last two seasons, giving away superstars and receiving washed-up talent in return.
If the Texans could get a trade like this to go through, they could find themselves back in the playoffs soon rather than later. The only difficult part about this trade is the Texans do not have a first-round pick. They would have to give future picks and players to get Adams.
If they want Adams that badly, you might just have to go all in.
The Colts are a very interesting team here.
They have the pieces around them to make a push for the playoffs and compete for a Super Bowl.
If the Colts could get a player in Adams on their already stacked defense, it will be game over and they could be one of the heavy favorites for a Super Bowl.
The only issues, just like Houston, they do not have a first-round pick to trade for Adams. They would have to give up later round picks, future picks, and players for this trade to go through.
But, if it does, the Colts will have the best safety corps in the entire NFL.
