New York Jets strong safety Jamal Adams fully understands why Tom Brady and others are wanting the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Jamal Adams truly understands. After all, his employment happens in the unforgiving tax state of New Jersey.

It all started with an Adam Schefter tweet, as it oftentimes does.

“Since word surfaced that Tom Brady is expected to land in Tampa, an unexpected high number of players have reached out to the Buccaneers to let them know they want to join the former Patriots’ QB there, per league sources,” Schefter tweeted.

It’s a sensical piece of news hitting the wire after the shocking Tom Brady news that places him in Tampa Bay with the Buccaneers at age 42.

The Prez fully gets it and relays the idea that the desire for Tampa isn’t all about Brady.

“Plus no state tax lol folks not crazy,” Adams tweeted.

Adams, 24, plays for the New York Jets. Making his professional home in Florham Park means the Jets’ best player is subject to some of the harshest state taxes in the country.

No state taxes in Florida make the state a popular destination for professional athletes. Texas, Adams’s home state, is another tax-friendly spot. (Remember the Adams-to-the-Dallas Cowboys rumors and how often the bonus of no state taxes arose this past season?)

Adams continues to hit social media hard during these crazy, isolated times. But at least he can celebrate the re-signing of fellow defensive back Brian Poole and a couple of offensive line additions in George Fant and Connor McGovern.
