New York Jets’ Jamal Adams: ‘I’ll be back to set the (safety) sack record’

New York Jets stud Jamal Adams announces that he will break the NFL safety sack record when he returns to action.

Jamal Adams finished just 1.5 shy in 2019. His 6.5 sacks fell short of the NFL safety record of eight, set by Adrian Wilson in 2005, and he missed two games late in the season that seemingly derailed his pass-rushing momentum.

After once claiming he would break the record (he did so at some point last year prior to the injury), he’s at it again.

Adams announces that he will, indeed, break the record once he returns to action, via his official Twitter account.

Adams, 24, has been the subject of serious NFL rumors since last year’s trade deadline that had Joe Douglas not immediately hanging up the phone when other teams asked about his potential services. Though he was hurt initially, both Adams and Douglas have gone about business in a professional manner since.

Other than Adams’s absence from the New York Jets virtual offseason program, all has been well despite the rumors.

As the tweet states, since 2017, no safety can touch Adams’s pass-rushing productivity. He’s sacked the quarterback 12 times over the last three years, with 10 of them coming over the last two seasons.

If not for the late-season injury, Adams would have probably broken the record. Sitting with 6.5 after 11 games a year ago, the injury in Cincinnati forced him to miss two of the last three games, all of which he failed to register a sack.

Without an incredibly-dangerous edge rusher on the roster, Jamal Adams may represent the Jets’ best pound-for-pound pass rusher. That idea is as scary as it is impressive.
