New York Jets strong safety Jamal Adams has officially requested a trade on the same day he wrote “maybe it’s time to move on.”

New York Jets safety Jamal Adams has officially requested a trade, according to Rich Cimini of ESPN.

“The Jets-Jamal Adams situation continues to deteriorate,” Cimini wrote. “Adams informed the team he wants to be traded, a source tells ESPN.”

According to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, Adams wants permission to seek a possible trade. The Jets have not yet granted the request.

Adams, 24, has battled with the Jets the entire offseason about an extension. He’s entering the third year of a five-year rookie contract that’s set to pay him around $3.5 million in 2020.

Earlier on Thursday, he responded to a random comment on Instagram with a flurry of emotions and capped it off with, “Maybe it’s time to move on.”

Joe Douglas and the Jets have maintained their desire to keep Adams a Jet for life but also don’t seem willing to extend him until at least after his fourth NFL campaign.

The situation has now officially reached an alarming level.
