New York Jets safety Jamal Adams was reportedly being discussed in trade talks right before the league's trade deadline. This was news to Jamal Adams. He vented on Twitter after the news broke that his contract was on the auction block, saying that he had no reason to suspect a move was in his future.
"Any reports of me asking to be traded from the New York Jets are completely false," he wrote."At the end of the week last week, I sat down with the GM and Coach Gase and told them I want to be here in New York. I was told yesterday by my agent that the GM then went behind my back and shopped me around to teams, even after I asked him to keep me here! Crazy business."
According to ESPN, Dallas offered a first-round pick for the 24-year-old Pro Bowler. While Adams has been open about his feelings during his time in the league, including his thoughts on the fortunes of the Jets, the team could not part with him for what the Cowboys were willing to give.
