Brandon Marshall chimes in on complicated Jamal Adams situation

The fallout between the New York Jets and safety Jamal Adams has led to the latter requesting a trade ahead of the 2020 NFL season. However, it seems former Jets wide receiver Brandon Marshall is holding out hope that their relationship will be resolved with a show of good faith.

Marshall said during an appearance on SiriusXM that the onus will fall on the Jets to extend an olive branch by making Adams the highest-paid safety in the NFL, via Tyler Calvaruso the Jets Wire:

“No no, he’s saying – I want to be clear here – he’s saying I want my money. Because if you pay him as the top safety in the NFL, he will be happy because Jamal Adams is a loyal guy,” Brandon Marshall said. “He’s passionate, he wants to rep this team. But he wants this team to stand up and say ‘You know what? We love you and respect you for the superstar you are.’”

Marshall is not the only one that is optimistic about Adams’ long-term future in New York. Jets head coach Adam Gase is also confident that both sides will be able to get on the same page despite all that has transpired this offseason.

Unfortunately, rumors indicate that Adams’ lack of trust in Gase has played a major factor in his overall desire to leave. As a result, the Jets may need to make significant efforts to ensure that the saga will not be a strain on the locker room leading up to the 2020 campaign.
