Jets star Jamal Adams finally clears air with team’s brassBy Ryan Ward
Before the trade deadline, the New York Jets were one of the teams that was mentioned prominently in trade rumors. One of which saw star safety Jamal Adams’ name brought up as a possible trade target. The Dallas Cowboys among others were rumored to be in hot pursuit of him.
Although a deal was not reached, it left things up in the air between Adams and the Jets. This was the first time that he was discussed in trade talks. As well as that, Adams believed he had received assurances from the organization. However, the two sides have since hashed things out to move past the entire situation, according to Rich Cimini of ESPN.

It took nearly a week, but New York Jets safety Jamal Adams finally met with general manager Joe Douglas to discuss the trade-deadline brouhaha that left Adams fuming.
Adams called it a productive discussion, saying Thursday that he doesn’t want to play anywhere else. He said it’s his “calling” to play for the Jets and lead them to a Super Bowl.
That is a rough patch that the Jets are more than happy to get past as Adams has been a critical piece to the puzzle. He has been their best player on the defensive side this season. He has also continued to voice a strong commitment to stay with the franchise for the long haul. New York is venturing through a difficult season, having lost seven out of their first eight games. Despite their playoffs hopes all but crushed, it’s certainly a great sign for them to have Adams committed for the long-term.
