Cowboys could return to Jamal Adams trade negotiations with Jets if no long-term deal exists
Jamal Adams is content with his situation with the New York Jets, but that doesn’t mean that the Dallas Cowboys won’t be keeping a close tab on him. According to Sports Illustrated’s Mike Fisher, Dallas could return to trade negotiations for Adams if he’s unable to reach a long-term deal with the Jets.

Adams, who has cemented himself as one of the best safeties in the NFL, is confident that he’ll get a deal done with the Jets. However, if the talks between New York and Adams get derailed, the Cowboys seem fixated on landing the All-Pro safety.
Ahead of last year’s trade deadline, it was reported that the Jets could be listening to trade offers for Adams. Of course, Dallas emerged as a possible candidate to land him. As a matter of fact, the Cowboys offered a first-round pick for Adams before the Jets chose to keep him on the roster.
Earlier in free agency, the Cowboys chose to sign Ha Ha Clinton-Dix to a one-year deal to bolster their secondary. Despite Clinton-Dix joining the team in 2020, Dallas wouldn’t mind pairing him with Adams if the opportunity presents itself.
Back in 2018, the Cowboys surrendered a first-round pick to acquire Amari Cooper in a trade. Therefore, Dallas has shown that they aren’t afraid to part ways with an early-round pick if it means getting a proven player.
In his first three seasons, Adams has evolved into arguably the most versatile safety in the league. Without a doubt, fans of the Cowboys will be hoping for his contract talks with the Jets to fall apart in the coming months.
