New York Jets star strong safety Jamal Adams released an emotional statement on Monday, highlighted by three words: “Stop killing us.”

Jamal Adams hasn’t said much as of late. Gone are the cryptic tweets while the world speculates about his future and in are the much more serious messages… for good reason.

Just as the COVID-19 situation appeared to be dying down, allowing athletes and sports fans to catch a glimpse of that light at the end of the tunnel, the entire country has stopped in its tracks thanks to the George Floyd video.

On Monday, the New York Jets best player unveiled an emotional statement highlighted by three words: “stop killing us.”

“Over the past few days I’ve been struggling with the pain from daily injustices in America,” Adams tweeted. “It’s something new every day!

“I think it is important to find your peace in all of this and remember self-care and positive energy. My heart goes out to the family and friends of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery. They’re more than just hashtags. It’s disgusting that we don’t have time to deal with our trauma before the next tragedy. We can’t let these conversations die and can’t forget those we’ve lost. Stop killing us.

“This isn’t just a political issue, this is about the morality of our nation. We all have a party to play!”

Adams, 24, is set to enter his fourth year in the NFL (all with the Jets). The first-team All-Pro is seeking a new contract, one he’s undoubtedly earned. Suddenly, that topic doesn’t carry the same weight as it did just a week ago thanks to a variety of happenings around the country, from coast-to-coast.

Adams also quote-tweeted Michael Jordan‘s statement on Sunday and showed love to teammate Quincy Enunwa, who recently celebrated a birthday during these sad times.
