Jamal Adams: I’m just focused on this team

In 2019, who a player does or doesn’t follow on social media becomes fodder for conversations and that’s what happened with Jets safety Jamal Adams on Tuesday.

Adams reportedly unfollowed the Jets on Instagram in the wake of Monday night’s 23-3 loss to the Browns. Adams was on the bench for the final five plays of that loss and confirmed during an appearance on WFAN Tuesday afternoon that he was benched.

“I tried to anticipate a play and anticipated it wrong. They benched me,” Adams said.

With other players pushing for getting trades around the league, the benching/social media double whammy could have some wondering if Adams is looking for an exit from the Jets. While Adams was less forthcoming about anything having to do with his social media proclivities and sounded down about the general state of affairs around the team, he didn’t say he wanted to go anywhere else.

He called the social media issue “outside noise” multiple times and said that he’s “just focused on this team.” That team has had a brutal start to the season, but Adams said he still believed the team can be a winner.

“I strongly believe so. It’s a special place. It’s a special atmosphere at MetLife,” Adams said. “We just have to get it together. . . . We just have to keep fighting.”

The next fight comes in New England this Sunday and people will be calling for the towel well before the final bell if the Jets look the way they did on Monday night.

  1. I think the biggest takeaway from this story is that there its not just news a big freakout event whenever someone follows or unfollows somone in social media.

  2. LOL

    OVERRATED

    Have warned and warned..I saw him doing some dumb film study garbage with Jaws and he kept talking about himself all the time AND he acted like his blasting into the backfield was some special talent.

    The guy is in no way, shape or form worthy of his draft selection. It’s crazy how middling players in certain markets self promote and then the media buys into it without actually watching his quality of play.

  3. I really feel bad for Jamal. No matter how bad the Jets have lost he has always remained positive and supportive of his team. He’s a true leader on and off the field; a far cry from players like Ramsey and Fitzpatrick who demand a trade at the first sign of adversity.

  4. There’s some talent on that roster. There just isn’t good leadership. It takes more than just talent to win in the NFL, as pretty much every diva WR without a ring can attest.

  5. Tylaw you are completely clueless. Jamal is one of the best safety’s in the league and ur team would take him in a second. You say a lot of stupid stuff that I’m surprised they post. Really shows you don’t have a clue

    I come with facts. What’s next, Leonard Williams is one of the best DL in the league? bawahah

    Like I said, he can’t hold Pat Chung’s jock as the Rover. You probably don’t even know what that is.

    Just because Jamal Adams hyped himself to the media and public (what a shock as a LOT of Jets players have done this through the years only to be exposed), it doesn’t mean he’s a great Safety in the league.

    Ridiculous. He lacks range, is sort of dumb and only plays downhill towards the line of scrimmage. I am sorry, but if you have Baker Mayfield tuning you up last night, you aren’t very good.

    Keep pretending that magically when NE wins SBs they don’t have any really good players on the team. Those really good players, somehow, some way, just only play elsewhere.

  7. TyLaw it is entertaining to come onto any random PFT article and know there’s a good change I’ll see some ignorant drivel from you. Hopefully for your sake the Pats can keep this winning up when Brady hangs them up. Good luck

  8. Dude idk what ur even talking about. No one said Chung the drug dealer wasn’t good. But for you too say Jamal isn’t good just shows how idiotic you are. I get you don’t like the jets or Goodell but come up with some other material man. Knocking Jamal when he is a do everything safety who is all over the field is just plain stupid. And Leo is overrated and not what he should be you are correct. But we weren’t even talking about him. You got some issues

  9. this guy is such a clown…he is only known because he is a loud-mouth look-at-me kind of player, certainly not for his play. cj mosley has made more of an impact on the jets in 3 quarters than this guy has in 3 years. his biggest play was mindlessly blindsiding a mascot at the pro bowl.

  10. And baker didn’t lite anything up actually the jets def made him look real ordinary. My guess you didn’t watch the game. And if the jets could have scored or did anything on offense they would have won the game. But your dead wrong like usual. Just stick too pats stuff cuz ur knowledge of other teams and players is a little off

    oh, i watched it

    great comedy

    sweet coverage on that 89 yarder to obj

    leonard williams = bust

    how wrong am I? Hmm? Mayfield sucks..wait until a real qb or offense gets ahold of that Jets D

  12. This kid is a football player, not a quitter. When the going gets tough, the tough get going. That used to be an American saying. Now it’s when the going gets tough, the weak quit. It’s nice to see there are still a few good men. I’m sure glad some of today’s football players aren’t members of The United States Marines Corps. Geez, could you imagine?

  13. Adam gase beginning the same pattern as he did in Miami. He’ll run all their good players out in the next two years just like he did there.

  14. Piss poor coaching showed when the 3rd string Qb looked better than the back up. Sam going down definitely hurt but not preparing for these type of scenarios hurts more. Be interesting to see who they bring in with only 1 qb healthy.
