Jets’ Safety Jamal Adams Requests Trade From Team, Gives List Of Teams Of Interest

The New York Jets and their star young safety Jamal Adams have been at odds for a while now as the two have been unable to agree upon a contract extension. Due to this, Adams has requested a trade from the team that drafted him.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Adams has a list of seven teams that he wants to be traded to. Those teams are the Baltimore Ravens, Kansas City Chiefs, Dallas Cowboys, San Francisco 49ers, Philadelphia Eagles, Seattle Seahawks and Houston Texans. Six of those teams, with the exception of the Cowboys, made the playoffs in 2019 but it will not be easy for a trade to those teams, especially if Adams wants an extension.

For the 2020 season, the Chiefs and Cowboys have less than $12 million in cap space, and have to pay their franchise quarterbacks. The Ravens and Seahawks also have less the $15 million in cap space, while the 49ers have just over $15 million. The Texans have $20 million which is a possible spot. But the team that is most likely to trade and sign an extension with Adams would be the Eagles, who have over $24 million in cap space for this upcoming season, fourth most in the NFL, and have already locked up their franchise cornerstones to long-term contracts.

Adams does have two more years on his rookie contract and can be franchise tagged at least once, so if he gets traded to one of the teams on his list, it is possible that he waits to sign an extension for at least one year. 

Numerous members of Adams’ 2017 draft class have received massive contract extensions including Christian McCaffery with Carolina and Partick Mahomes in line for one with Kansas City. 

Adams is seeking to be the highest-paid safety in the entire NFL, which would mean a salary of more than $14.6 million, which is the current high mark. Of all the guys that deserve to be the highest paid safety in football, Adams is on the short list. In three season, Adams has been named to two Pro Bowls, has a total of 273 tackles, 12 sacks, two interceptions and six forced fumbles.
