Jets star Jamal Adams speaks out on wanting to win a Super Bowl for New York
“I would love to be here. I would love to be here, it’s simple as that,” Adams told reporters. “I want to bring success to this organization. I want to bring a Super Bowl to this organization. That’s why I feel like I was placed in New York, to kind of pick up where my dad left off. His career was cut short. That’s my calling.”
New York took calls on trade offers for Adams, with a potential trade with the Cowboys gaining traction in the media before it was determined New York’s asking price for the former first round pick was too high.
Adams is in his third season with the Jets, with 35 tackles and a sack so far in 2019. His best season came in 2018 when he racked up 115 tackles, 3.5 sacks, and an interception, earning a trip to the Pro Bowl.
New York hasn’t had the same success as Adams though, with the team going 10-30 since taking Adams with the sixth pick in the 2017 NFL Draft.
The Jets had promise going into the season, signing free agent running back Le’Veon Bell and linebacker C.J. Mosley. But after squandering a fourth quarter lead in Week 1 against the Buffalo Bills and losing quarterback Sam Darnold to mono, the team is now one of the worst in the league.
While it may take a while for the Jets to play in February, Adams is determined to stick with the team and win it all in the black and green for his father, a former Jets player.
