Jamal Adams reportedly asks Jets to trade him

New York Jets safety Jamal Adams “informed the team he wants to be traded," reports Rich Cimini of ESPN.

What It Means:

Adams has expressed his displeasure about not receiving a contract extension and the Jets fielded trade offers for the All-Pro at last year's deadline, so this isn't a surprise. However, the Jets have previously indicated that they intend to keep Adams around for the long haul. The 24-year-old is scheduled to make $3.5 million in the final year of his rookie deal. He set career-highs in sacks (6.5) and tackles for loss (10) last season. Adams also recorded 1 interception, 7 pass deflections, 2 forced fumbles, 1 fumble recovery, and 1 touchdown in 14 games. He was named the fourth-best safety in football by Pro Football Focus. Adams has graded out as a top-four safety each of the past two seasons among safeties with 500-plus snaps.

numberFire's models project Adams for 87.3 tackles, 4.4 sacks, 2.1 interceptions, and 6.0 pass deflections this season. The Jets D/ST is 21st in our preseason fantasy rankings.
