New York Jets’ Jamal Adams says his goodbyes to teammate and fellow safety, his partner in crime, Marcus Maye.
There are only a few rules in 2020—the year that’s testing every human on the face of the Earth. The first and most important rule is to always wear a mask inside buildings while in public. Secondly, make sure you’re socially distancing, maintaining a safe 6-foot distance at all times.
Jamal Adams decided those rules aren’t enough, as he’s recently come up with a dandy of his own: Make sure to always create news about his current “unhappy situation” every 24 hours.
The man simply cannot let a full day go by without updating to the saga. On Monday, the New York Jets safety essentially said his goodbyes to teammate and partner in crime within Gregg Williams’s defensive scheme, Marcus Maye.
The most recent Jamal Adams move is to quote-tweet Marcus Maye in a way that makes it obvious he feels he's never playing another snap for the #Jets again. pic.twitter.com/sVWwrmd6Uw

“Brotha just keep being u. Show the world why you’re the best FS in the Game,” Adams tweeted. “U deserve everything coming your way. I’ma miss balling with u the most. Believe that! Love you forever brotha.”
Adams’s comments came from a quote-tweet hitching off an original Maye tweet calling out all of the “fake love” he’s been receiving as of late.
I been getting all this new fake love now!!! Smh

Despite having two years left on his rookie deal, Adams continues his public strategy that is shouting displeasure about his current situation.
Many pundits believe the Adams-Maye combo is the best safety tandem in the NFL. Adams’s box play mixed with Maye’s deep coverage is something very few tandems can match on a game-by-game basis. Maye’s injury problems in 2018 set the duo back a bit but 2019 saw them flourish.
Maye is entering the final year of his four-year rookie contract. His second-round status means the Jets have no chance to attach team fifth-year option as they did with Adams.
