RUMOR: Ravens interested in trading for Jets’ Jamal Adams
Already one of the best teams in the NFL last year, the Baltimore Ravens are reportedly looking to become even more of a threat heading into the 2020 season.
Adams, whom the Jets selected with the sixth overall pick in 2017 out of LSU, has quickly developed into one of the league’s best safeties in his first three seasons. However, that hasn’t stopped Adams’ name from popping up in trade rumors in the past year. Other than the Ravens, teams like the Dallas Cowboys have reportedly shown interest in adding the 24-year-old star.
The Ravens went a league-best 14-2 in the regular season last year led by MVP Lamar Jackson and a stingy defense. This offseason, Baltimore has added defensive weapons such as Calais Campbell and Earl Thomas.
As for Adams, the third-year pro continued to dominate despite his team’s lack of success. In 14 games for the Jets in 2019, Adams recorded 61 tackles, 10 tackles for a loss, seven passes defended, two forced fumbles and an interception while being named a First-Team All-Pro for the first time in his career.
The Ravens’ defense already ranked third in the NFL last season in terms of points allowed per game, so if the AFC contenders can find a way to add one of the league’s best young talents, it could make a great team even better.
However, at the same time, reports have come out that the Jets have no intention in trading their superstar safety.
