These players could help the New York Jets recuperate from the loss of Jamal Adams.

For the sake of this article, we will choose one target from each of the teams laid out on Adams‘ “wishlist” (even though the Jets do not have to abide by it):

Let’s dive straight into it. If the Jets are able to snag a player (rather than just draft picks) from their trade partner in an Adams deal, which targets could help them land on their feet?

Cowboys: WR Michael Gallup

Wide receiver is going to be a common theme here. The Jets have perhaps the shakiest group of outside wide receivers in the NFL. If they can use the exodus of Adams to supplement their franchise quarterback, it would be a tremendous way to come out of this fiasco feeling rejuvenated.

Adams, a native of the Dallas area, has been connected to the Cowboys heading all the way back to the trade deadline. The Cowboys and Jets were rumored to have discussed a deal, which obviously did not come to fruition. Adams has been constantly nudging the Cowboys on social media.

Gallup, 24, just had a breakout second season in which he posted 66 receptions for 1,107 yards and six touchdowns, doubling up his rookie-year line of 33/507/2 even while missing two games.

With Amari Cooper locked into a five-year, $100 million deal and recent first-round pick CeeDee Lamb also secured for the foreseeable future, Dallas has more than enough talent at wide receiver to feel comfortable with the loss of Gallup. The Cowboys can also toss the burden of Gallup’s upcoming contract situation upon the Jets.

Gallup struggles with drops – he had a league-leading 13 in 2019 – but he does more than enough to make up for it. He ranked sixth in the NFL with 79.3 receiving yards per game and placed 10th among wide receivers with 2.16 yards per route run.

Our next target is a highly-intriguing defensive piece – one who is in his prime and would solve a major need for Gregg Williams and the Jets.
