Surprise, surprise: Jamal Adams issues complaint No. 1 with Seahawks

The Jets traded Adams to the Seahawks for a 2021 and 2022 first-round pick, a 2021 third-round pick and safety Bradley McDougald. The end came this week after Adams went to the New York Daily News and aired dirty laundry about coach Adam Gase and general manager Joe Douglas, calling the tandem dishonest, disrespectful and distant. But how do the Jets offloading the malcontent Adams in this deal measure up to other recent defensive player blockbuster deals?

"I think he wants to be [with the Jets]".

Adams is set to make about $3.59 million in 2020 and $9.86 million in 2021.

Adams responded, saying he would see Bell during their Week 14 matchup. This helps the defense tremendously. That gives Douglas plenty of ammo to build around Darnold with cheap rookie contracts.

"We haven't drafted above 25 for what-10 years?" The Jets look like the last-place team in the AFC East for the fourth year in the last five. But Carroll noted that the Seahawks are a perennial playoff contender, and if they remain that way the picks will be toward the end of the first round. That New York netted that much draft capital while being backed into a corner publicly is impressive work. Seattle shores up its secondary with one of the game's best safeties. Everything will fall on the draft now, yes, but that flexibility in both the draft and the salary cap is what made Douglas a quality executive in his previous three stops, and it will be what defines his tenure with the Jets in the coming years as well.
