Jets news: Jamal Adams expects to get an extension done with New York
The New York Jets have a bonafide superstar on their hands with safety Jamal Adams. However, things got a little rocky between the two during the 2019 season.
It appears there’s good news on that front for the Jets. Things seem to have been repaired, as contract extension talks between the two sides have begun. Not only that, but Adams seems to be happy with where things are headed. And he expects to get a deal done.

Adams has been one of the better safeties in the NFL since entering the league in 2017. 2019 was another great year in that short career so far.
Although he only played in 14 games for the Jets, Adams racked up 75 tackles (it was a career-low). He set a new mark in sacks with 6.5 sacks though.
Adams also logged two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery. He also had an interception and scored his first two defensive touchdowns in 2019. Finally, he added in seven pass deflections and a career-best 10 tackles for loss.
Adams has firmly planted himself as one of the best safeties in the NFL. The Jets struck gold when they drafted him sixth overall back in 2017. It appears they understand that too, as they are trying to get a deal done.
With both sides eager to get something done, it is likely this deal will be in the news pretty soon. As New York continues to grow into a much better team, they will want their homegrown stars to stick around.
That all starts with Adams. Expect this deal to pay him handsomely, as he looks to anchor the defense for years to come.
