Adam Gase Wants Jamal Adams To Stick Around

New York Jets head coach Adam Gase was asked if he wanted All-Pro safety Jamal Adams on the team in 2020. "Yes, I want Jamal on our team," Gase said. Adams has been in an ongoing contract dispute with the team and requested a trade last week. Defensive coordinator Gregg Williams made similar comments on Thursday. Adams wants to be paid like a top defender in the league and wants a new deal before the 2020 season, but the Jets are in no rush to make a move, as they have Adams under contract for another two seasons. Gang Green hasn't given the 24-year-old permission to seek out a trade. He has made two Pro Bowls and one All-Pro team and will make $3.6 million this year and $9.9 million in 2021. It remains to be seen if the two sides will reconcile, but either way, Adams is the top fantasy defensive back in IDP leagues.

Gregg Williams Wants To Keep Jamal Adams Around

New York Jets defensive coordinator Gregg Williams doesn't want All-Pro safety Jamal Adams going anywhere after he asked for a trade. He has to handle his contract, Williams said. Hell do all that kind of stuff Im hoping everything goes well. I love coaching him. And I got his back. Adams was tied for the team lead in tackles for loss (10, pass deflections (seven), quarterback hits (13) and forced fumbles (two) last season under Williams. He also finished first in solo tackles (61) and second in total tackles (75) and sacks (6.5) despite missing two games. The 24-year-old is one of the best safeties in the game already and should be considered the top IDP safety for fantasy owners because of his ability to play in coverage, stop the run, play as a linebacker and rush the passer. The Jets would be losing their best defender if they end up trading him.

Jamal Adams Pushing For Trade To Cowboys

New York Jets safety Jamal Adams, who requested a trade last week, would prefer to be dealt to the Dallas Cowboys, his hometown team. Adams grew up in the Dallas area and attended high school 31 miles from AT&T Stadium. The Cowboys are one of eight teams he'd accept a trade to without needing a new deal, but the Jets haven't granted him permission to seek a trade. Dallas was a suitor last year at the trade deadline for Adams, but the Jets have no intention of trading him with him being under contract for two more years. An All-Pro in 2019, Adams wants to be one of the highest-paid defensive players in the league and wants an extension before the 2020 season. Dallas could use Adams' services in the secondary, but they only have around $11 million in salary cap room as of right now. No matter where Adams is playing come Week 1, he should be the top IDP target among defensive backs.
