The Dallas Cowboys are now “seriously in play” for the services of New York Jets strong safety Jamal Adams, per report.

Where the truth lies is usually the tricky part when discussing big-time professional sports rumors. Even trickier is what currently surrounds Jamal Adams.

The New York Jets stud safety isn’t happy with the fact he doesn’t yet have a longterm extension on the table, and it’s causing serious friction between him and his employer.

Now, the Dallas Cowboys are “seriously in play” for Adams’ services, per Gary Myers.

“The latest just now from my Jamal Adams source: ‘The Cowboys are seriously in play now that they confirmed the Jets want 1st and 3rd round picks for Adams.’
Boys $5.6M under cap and need to get long-term deal done with Dak to lower his $31.4M franchise number to sign Adams.”

Adams, 24, is a Lewisville, TX native, something that’s sparked Cowboys rumors since last fall. His camp and the Jets continue the saga that started last trade deadline. No dollar amount has been yet indicated, meaning, most likely, the two sides are very far apart in terms of whether or not this should even be a discussion.

Joe Douglas is from the value school of NFL front office business. He learned from Ozzie Newsome and understands every dollar under the salary cap is valuable. Extending a player (no matter how great) heading into the fourth year of his rookie deal is a rare thing post-Sam Bradford.

But that doesn’t mean the franchise is even looking to trade their best player. For instance, per Ralph Vacchiano of SNY, the Jets would love to avoid such a situation.

“The Jets have no intention of trading Jamal Adams despite their latest impasse in contract negotiations, according to a source,” Vacchiano wrote. “And they expect that they will eventually sign him to a lucrative contract that, as promised, will make him a ‘Jet for life.'”

Those words mirror what Douglas has said on multiple occasions this offseason.

Moreover, a contrasting report to Myers’ comes from Jane Slater of NFL Network, who claims the Cowboys are “not in” on the Adams fun.

In this rare case, both sides own a legitimate claim, and how it winds up should be extremely interesting.

I am sorry to see this publication lower its self to using click bait. The headline is clearly misleading and there is NO CHANCE….at least very little that the Jets trade Adams and he has NO LEVERAGE to force the issue find something more relevant
