New York Jets head coach Adam Gase put forth a simplistic attitude towards the Jamal Adams situation: “That’s just what it is.”

It is what it is and there isn’t a single thing any one of us could do about the situation. Ask a friendly neighbor what it feels like during a time of struggle, and, more often than not, “it is what it is” will come back as the classic retort.

On Monday, Adam Gase was that friendly neighbor.

Asked what he thought about the current Jamal Adams situation, the New York Jets head coach provided as simplistic an answer as has ever existed.

“As far as with Jamal (Adams), this is voluntary. That’s just what it is,” Adam Gase said on a Monday conference call. “That’s the CBA rules and there’s really nothing we can do about that.”

Adams, 24, is undoubtedly the organization’s best player. On the heels of a first-team All-Pro selection, the LSU product is entering the fourth year of a four-year rookie deal that includes the familiar fifth-year team option.

Gase leaned on the voluntary nature of the program while on the call, something many NFL head coaches have had to do over the last several years via voluntary OTAs.

What makes Adams’s case unique is his contract situation.
