New York Jets: Jamal Adams’ best route to big money remains commitment

Commitment has always been New York Jets strong safety Jamal Adams‘s best strategy in the hopes of big NFL money.

Life is unfair. Any objections?

Only the made-for-money rich kid with a trust fund could possibly disagree, yet he or she probably would not dare stand up and object. For the majority of us, “life is unfair” is just something of a cold, harsh reality.

What’s that I hear? An objection? A yes, it’s Jamal Adams, your friendlihood best safety in the NFL who has stood up with authority.

If only Adams obeyed his greater instincts. He’d understand a fierce objection is not his path to piles of cash he can swim in like Scrooge McDuck.

Commitment is the correct path to his desires.

You already know the story. Hockey-loving Russia has to know the story by now. The New York Jets best player wants a new deal. He wants to get paid, and the man—based on the production showcased over his first three years—deserves that money.

Joe Douglas and the Jets even want to pay him. Just not yet. Not now. Not when the kid’s entering the fourth year of a rookie deal in a league that rarely dishes out extra cash to a first-round three-year vet.

Let’s get ready to rumble. Leaks, reports, rumors and cryptic tweets have swirled since the trade-deadline day last fall that had Jets fandom erupt into a frenzy. Adams’s feelings were burnt and he wasn’t afraid to let the world know how he felt.
