Jets star Jamal Adams reveals what he wants New York to do this offseason
The New York Jets are discussing a long-term deal with safety Jamal Adams, and general manager Joe Douglas recently said that he wants to make Adams a Jet for life.
Based on that, there is obviously a reason to be optimistic in terms of Adams’ long-term future in New York.
However, Adams is also getting tired of losing, as the Jets have been an abject disaster ever since the two-time Pro Bowler was drafted by the club in 2017.
Of course, Gang Green has been bad for much longer than that, as New York has not made the playoffs since the 2010-11 campaign, but we are just going by Adams’ frame of reference here.
While Adams seems committed to the Jets for the long haul, he also wants the team to get better moving forward, and he offered some advice as to what he thinks Douglas and Co. should do this offseason:
“I would definitely go for (Jadeveon) Clowney. Pass rusher, that’s what I’m looking forward to,” Adams told NFL Network at the Scouting Combine. “That’s a safety’s best friend, you know what I mean? Definitely Clowney, big 9-1 (Yannick Ngakoue) down in Jacksonville, he’s a beast. Dante Fowler. I mean, there are so many guys coming out right now in free agency that we could sure use coming off that end.”
Clowney and Fowler, who spent their 2019 campaigns with the Seattle Seahawks and Los Angeles Rams, respectively, will be free agents this month. Meanwhile, the Jaguars plan to use their franchise tag on Ngakoue, but Ngakoue made it clear on Twitter on Monday morning that he has no intention of signing a long-term contract with the club, meaning that Jacksonville could very well trade him this offseason.
The Jets are certainly in need of some pass-rushing help, so Adams’ recommendations are sound.
