New York Jets strong safety Jamal Adams continues his mysterious, cryptic ways on Twitter, which is prompting many emotions for fans.

Jamal Adams has officially reached the next plateau. Where exactly that plateau exists, very few know.

Just one glance at the man’s Twitter account could break your brain for the next 24 hours.

As cryptic as it gets, the New York Jets best player is throwing up tweets very few folks can decipher.

Adams, 24, is entering the fourth year of a rookie deal that now runs through the 2021 season (thanks to Joe Douglas activating his fifth-year option last week). As, arguably, the best safety in the NFL, the man deserves to be paid. Instead, he’s sitting in the 27th hole in terms of average salary per season for all NFL safety contracts.

Despite trade rumors and Douglas freely admitting he has picked up the phone when interested parties have called, he’s still a Jet after the NFL draft dust settled.

In 14 games a year ago, Adams collected 6.5 sacks, 7 pass deflections, 75 tackles and a pick-6. He was en route to breaking the NFL’s single-season safety sack record until a late-season injury knocked him out for two contests.

Quarantined like most of the country, the mysterious tweets just won’t stop.

The first explanation for any cryptic tweet can point to music. Some of these mysterious posts can be explained away through lyrics. That doesn’t quite look like the case in this situation.

The best bet deals with Adams’s contract situation. He’s made it clear that he expects to be paid, now, and he’ll share those thoughts in a subtle way through Twitter, including retweeting the following tweet:

Also, make sure you’re sharing your knowledge.

Yet Adams’s knowledge about any one situation he’s dealing with is far from available—the way it should be.

Cryptic or not, over-the-top or not, New York Jets fandom must commend Jamal Adams for his restraint since the season ended. Both he and Joe Douglas have handled things tremendously, especially after the trade-deadline noise that littered Jets headlines.

We warn you, however, to not dive too deep when visiting the man’s Twitter. You may never return the same person.

For those who take his tweets too seriously, come on… there has to be something better to do at home.
