Joe Douglas: Jets excited to move forward with Jamal Adams

Safety Jamal Adams was the only Jets player selected to the Pro Bowl and All-Pro team, which would seem to make him the kind of piece the Jets would want to build around in 2020 and beyond.

They haven’t made it abundantly clear that’s the case, however. Adams’ name came up in trade talks before the October trade deadline, which didn’t make Adams happy, but he remains on hand and General Manager Joe Douglas said on Monday that the team has placed that in the “rear-view mirror” as they head into the offseason.

“We’re just looking forward and just excited that he’s part of the team. . . . All you have to do is watch on Sundays and see the difference that he makes not only on our defense but on our team,” Douglas said during an appearance on The Michael Kay Show.

The Jets can sign Adams to an extension this offseason, although Douglas didn’t comment on the likelihood of that happening because he’d prefer those discussions are kept inside the organization.

  1. Overrated. Perfect Jet though. Lots of talking and self promotion, bad defense, low IQ and immaturity with little leadership.

    The team will enable him more, they’ll never get over .500 and then he’ll want 15 mil per.

    Rinse and repeat.

  2. What is a GM of a rebuilding team supposed to say?

    What is any GM in any sport supposed to say when reporters ask them to tip their hand and reveal their plans?
    “Build through the draft”, sounds like a good stock reply.

  3. I’m sure the NFL always puts the most overrated players on the all pro 1st team. It’s always better to keep your mouth shut and let people think you are a fool rather than open it and erase all doubt. We all know, you are a fool!

  4. Yes TY he was voted all pro because he is a bad defensive player – do you even pay attention to what you post ? Talks too much? perhaps he should be more humble like Gilmore ( “I should be DPOY”)is, eh? Talk about self promotion- but we understand your O2 consumption gets a little thin in mommy’s basement from time to time – what a tool!

  5. If Adams ever wants to play for a real franchise he should be pulling an AB to get out as should any player with the Jets including Darnold because as long as Gase, I am a QB Guru and look how bad of a job i did coaching Tannehill (seems to be a much different QB with a real coach) and Miami but the Jets hired me, remains coach this franchise will continue to go further down the toilet.

  6. Tylaw you are a clueless as they come. Clown my man your comments get more rediculous every time I read one. Jamal adams is the best safety in the game and every team including ur patriots would jump at the chance to have him. Jamal is 24 with 2 pro bowls and 1 all pro and that’s just the start of his hof career. Good luck with you’re rebuilding process over their in New England might be a little hard when they take away some draft picks because you CHEATED. Again. Can’t win without cheating

  7. “Jamal Adams > Any New England DB in History

    that’s just truth”

    He’s certainly not better than Rodney Harrison or Ty Law.

    Fact: Jamal Adams woul dneve

    He can’t even hold Pat Chung’s jock as in the box Safety. Can’t even hold it.

    Yes, Jamal Adams is better than HOFer Mike Haynes, Ty laws, should be a HOFer in Rodney Harrison, etc. Or, now Gilmore.

    I am not even sure he’s better than what Lawyer Nilloy was in HE. In fact, he isn’t. He’s dumb as a bag of rocks and a liability in coverage. The classic “look at me” ego player for the Jets where the NY media just prints what he says.

    Watch him play. You clearly haven’t seen enough. He has no range and takes lots of gambles, hence their pass D sucks.

    You can find a Rover like that in the ;later rds. It’s a specialized position, one he isn’t that great at because he has little cerebral play.

    His IQ is probably under 100. He scored a flippin’ 11 on his Wonderlic.

    LOL

    Again, was never even on the Pats draft board.

    Running around like a chicken with your head cut off is not playing a proper Safety role.

    Learn the game.

    Won’t do that, but I have been warning about Brady checking out since he skipped last year’s OTAs.

    I want McDoofus gone and Brady’s 23 mil off the books. Stidham is good to go.

    I saw Brady’s ego being a problem last year and so did BB. The run game and D won the SB last year for all to see.

    Not an outlier with a QB at age 42.

    Thanks.

    PS Try to learn the sport from others. It might help you.

    LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Best Safety in the game?! You people are sick.

    He’s nowhere near the best Safeties in the game. Eddie JAckon with Chicago blows him out of the water for example.

    Old man McCourty blows him away. Old man Chung has mastered the Rover spot for the last 5 years winning 3 SBs in the process.

    Learn the game. A mouthy, immature self promoter for the Jets is not the “best” at anything.

    He’s the best at self promotion, that’s about it.

    What’s next, Leonard Williams is the best DT in the game? LOL!

  11. Hey Harrison

    Agree he’s not the player Rodney Harrison or Ty Law turned out to be – but he is a very good young player who has done very well in his first few years on a team that is not very good. He certainly has the opportunity to be great like the players you mentioned. But for the loser above to indicate he is a bad player and simply a product of Media is just ignorant – and certainly indicative of someone who himself needs to learn the game – I see lots of knowledgeable Pats fans on here – certainly he is not one of them
