The No. 6 overall pick in the 2017 draft is angling to be the second player from his draft class to sign an extension far earlier than is customary, following Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey. "It's all luv. Maybe it's time to move on!" Now, it is being reported that he has completely requested a trade and wants out of NY.
The Jets' all-pro safety, angered by the non-existence of the long-term contract offer he feels he deserves, requested a trade, sources confirmed to The Athletic. It's instead populated with six teams that made the playoffs in 2019, plus his hometown Dallas Cowboys. He very obviously would like to play for a victor after not experiencing a winning team in his three years with the Jets.
Making that type of demand with two years left on his contract won't endear him to coaches or management, Jets or otherwise. Adams has been pretty vocal about it, and now he sounds like he's just about done with the Jets.
It had been nearly three weeks since Jamal Adams rumblings were last heard around Cowboys Nation, so the latest news shouldn't come as a huge surprise. He is set to make roughly $9.8 million in 2021. There are reports out there, including one from ESPN's Jeremy Fowler, that Adams wants to be the highest-paid defensive player in the NFL. But if the Seahawks were willing to part with draft picks, they're in a position where that's possible. Currently, that honor goes to Eddie Jackson of the Chicago Bears, who makes $14.6 million.
A lot can happen between now and the beginning of the 2020 season.

Union Home Minister Amit Shah has emphasized on the need to have a unified strategy in the Delhi-NCR region to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic.
Multiple comments on social media led to Adams formally requesting an exit from NY in a matter of days this past week. That's less likely, but given Seattle's current cap situation, that's certainly an opinion they may have and favor.
But Ryan Clark - an ESPN analyst who trains several top National Football League safeties - updated the list Friday to include the Buccaneers.
"It's all about Marquise Blair at this point", he said.
As you probably expected, the Detroit Lions are not on Adams' list.
