Buccaneers on Jamal Adams’ list of preferred teams in a trade

Jets safety Jamal Adams told the team that he wants to be traded this week and he apparently wouldn’t mind joining up with a couple of his former opponents in the AFC East.

Adams told former NFL safety and current ESPN personality Ryan Clark that he would love to play for the Buccaneers.

Landing Adams would continue a monumental offseason for the Buccaneers as they’ve already added quarterback Tom Brady and tight end Rob Gronkowski to change the look of their offense. It would also reunite Adams with former Jets head coach Todd Bowles, who is heading into his second year as the defensive coordinator in Tampa.

A report on Thursday indicated that Adams has also targeted the Cowboys, Ravens, Texans, Chiefs, Eagles, 49ers and Seahawks as potential destinations. The Jets could trade Adams anywhere, but his desire for a contract extension would likely make teams not on his list dubious of giving up much for a player who might not be there for the long term.

The Jets haven’t shown any sign that they’re pushing to trade Adams anywhere at this point, but things could move in that direction if they don’t come to an agreement on a new deal in the near future.

  1. The thing is, these teams may not want to do a market setting contract for him, so is he willing to accept a fair offer that doesn’t cripple the salary cap?

  2. I’d like to see the Jets trade him if they can get a lot of draft material for him.
    He’s not Ed Reed. He’s very good, but not a difference maker.

  3. How can he make a trade team list when he’s still on his rookie deal. Does he honestly think the Jets give a rats asz where he wants to go?

    They will trade with whom they can find a partner, which will hard enough task in its own considering he wants north of 17 million and will also probabpy fetch 21st round pics.

    Good luck with that Jamal.

  4. I’m normally on the player’s side but it’s like he only wants to go to winning teams. Going to a winning team and trying to get top dollar usually don’t go hand in hand.

    The original report mentioned that the teams he specified were teams he would go to without needing a contract extension. All other trade destinations would require a long term extension first.

    So you’re exactly right. He wasn’t requesting top dollar from the “winning” teams. I put winning in quotes because the list includes Dallas.

  6. Chiefs already have Matheau and Juan Thornhill, a young rookie stud. Not paying what he’s certainly going to demand when they’re already set.
