New York Jets strong safety Jamal Adams voices serious displeasure with his employer about his contract situation.

Just like that, the Jamal Adams conversation returns.

New York Jets strong safety Jamal Adams voiced displeasure with his employer. Commenting on a Bleacher Report Gridiron Instagram post that discussed the possibility of Myles Garrett signing a new deal soon, Adams made his frustrations known.

“As they should,” Adams commented. “Well deserved MG (Myles Garret). I can’t even get my first proposal that they said they would send over in January.

“I was called selfish, tho. Lol. A lot of talk no action.”

Adams, 24, is heading into the fourth season of a five-year rookie deal (with the team-option officially activated). He’s been vocal about wanting a new deal following the 2019 season. In addition, the trade-deadline blowup in last fall didn’t help matters.

The first-team All-Pro safety will make a base amount of $825,000 in 2020 and $9.86 in 2021. All told, Adams will rake in $3.5 million in 2020 (beyond his base number).

Over the last couple of weeks, this topic has been relatively quiet. Adams immersed himself in the recent protests surrounding Black Lives Matter. On Friday, he decided to shift the topic to his contract negotiations (or lack thereof).

Joe Douglas and the Jets have consistently sent out the same message: they want to make Adams a “Jet for life.” When the extension arrives is the sticking point. Very few players receive that extension after just the third year of the rookie deal (post-Sam Bradford). Value is the name of the game and dishing out that money when it’s absolutely not yet necessary is a tough move for a general manager.

How this saga plays out remains to be seen. But we now know it’s officially back in the headlines thanks to Jamal Adams once again taking it to social media.
