What if Jamal Adams, New York Jets fail to extend prior to the season?

New York Jets fans are waiting on the edge of their seats for Jamal Adams to receive that big-time extension, but what if it doesn’t happen?

Any day now. It will happen. It has to.

The New York Jets wouldn’t be foolish enough to enter the 2020 season without extending their best player, right?

These are the words of the average Jets fan at the moment. The overall sentiment of the Jets fanbase is crystal clear: They want a Jamal Adams extension and they want it now. But as the Rolling Stones have reminded us time and again, you can’t always get what you want.

As clear as most of the fanbase believes an extension should happen, what if it never materializes prior to the 2020 season? What then?

Adams ranked 27th in salary at his position a year ago, meaning his salary isn’t commensurate with his production. Since the offseason ended, Adams has been quite clear about his desire to extend as soon as possible, even publicly announcing he wants to be a Jet for life.
