Jamal Adams on Woody Johnson: “We need the right people at the top”

Jamal Adams is trying to talk his way out of the Jets anyway, and now he’s making pointed comments about ownership.

In response to a story accusing team owner Woody Johnson making sexist and racist comments in his job as the United States’ ambassador to the United Kingdom, the Jets’ star safety made his feelings clear.

We need the RIGHT people at the top,” Adams wrote in his first message which accompanied CNN’s story. “Wrong is wrong!”

He followed that with his own words expounding on the situation.

The Jets have been run by Johnson’s brother Christopher (seen linking arms with Adams in the photograph) in Woody’s absence.

The football team has been trying to get Adams back in the metaphorical boat, but he’s been openly taunting the Jets anyway, and it’s clear he’s not happy with this latest development. That makes it hard to imagine how this makes him more likely to sign a long-term deal with the team.

  1. The NFL is dead. When identity politics, double standards, embracing this cancel culture, and feelings are brought to the forefront, it becomes an undeniable fact. Everything they touch gets destroyed.

    Maybe the NFL could just go more than a few days without an on owner or an organization being accused of sexual misconduct?

  3. In any legitimate administration, Johnson would have resigned the moment these allegations saw the blinding light of exposure.

    It seems to me that everyone is being accused of something nowadays. It’s not interesting anymore, it’s downright petty. The sympathy cards were all used up a very long time ago.

  5. I don’t think this comment has anything to do with Adams trying to talk his way out of town. Yes, he may feel like he has nothing to lose, but this is what EVERY Jets player should be tweeting today, regardless of status. The fact that he wants a new contract or to be traded is irrelevant. I hope his actions embolden more past and present Jets players and their fans to do the same.

  6. when the money is right, adams will sign. Johnson’s an idiot, and now an embarrassment.

  7. Is there audio recorded of Woody Johnson saying inappropriate things? If not,. then it is hearsay.

  8. “Is there audio recorded of Woody Johnson saying inappropriate things? If not,. then it is hearsay.” yes, there is a video.

    Legitimate being the key word here.

  10. I wanted my team to draft Jamal Adams. I am so thankful the Jets took this money hungry distraction instead.
