Jamal Adams. vs. New York Jets: The rare instance featuring two correct sides

Jamal Adams versus the New York Jets is that rare contract negotiation battle that features two correct opposing arguments.

In one corner is the challenger, the league’s best safety who flies around all parts of the field to make a tackle, swat away a pass or steal the bread right out of Daniel Jones‘ rookie hands. He is fearless in his approach, for he feels many of his colleagues depend on such a mindset. The players association, if you will, counts on at least a fight.

In the other corner is the undefeated champion, one of the 32 franchises that holds all the cards. Knowing the system, to dish out dollars to any player entering just the fourth year of his rookie deal (post-Sam Bradford class) would be a major error in value. This champion remains undefeated purely due to the system featuring a hard salary cap not for the faint of heart.

On Friday, Jamal Adams versus the New York Jets just plowed through another chapter in its already-long story, and what’s interesting about this case study is that both sides own a correct stance on the topic.

It’s a rarity for the court of public opinion to reach a stalemate in addition to the two sides at the negotiating table, but that’s what we seemingly have at the moment.
