New York Jets and Jamal Adams in stand-off over contract extension

Talks over a new deal for New York Jets safety Jamal Adams have come to a standstill, with reports the two sides have even discussed the possibility of a trade.

Adams and the Jets have reportedly had several discussions since last month’s Draft, but remain divided over the timing and urgency of an improved contract.

The 24-year-old, a two-time Pro Bowl selection since being taken by New York with the sixth overall pick in 2017, is entering his fourth season and is due to make $3.5m in 2020.

The Jets want to wait to do a long-term extension while Adams wants one done before the season.

Timing is on the Jets’ side, having already exercised Adams’ fifth-year option, putting him under team control for the next two seasons before his contract runs out.

If he plays on his fifth-year option, Adams would make $9.9m in 2021.

According to ESPN, the two sides even talked about the possibility of a trade, something Adams is reportedly open to but that the Jets want no part of.

There are also reports more than half the teams in the NFL have reached out to the Jets with interest in a possible trade for Adams.

The Jets reportedly entertained trade offers for Adams last year, with the Dallas Cowboys heavily linked.
