New York Jets defensive coordinator Gregg Williams decided to send a comforting message to Jamal Adams on Thursday.

One man decided to reverse paths as the entire world is figuratively burning down in Florham Park, NJ.

Gregg Williams played the role of big brother on Thursday when he sent a comforting message to disgruntled New York Jets star Jamal Adams.

“I got his back,” Williams told reporters on a scheduled conference call.

Adams, 24, has been clear about his desire to skip town despite the two years remaining on his rookie deal. Going as far as to tell Jets fans “maybe it’s time to move on” and shout out at an individual in a parking lot that he’s “trying” to play for “Dallas,” the Jets are currently in the midst of a challenge unlike most.

A recent report suggests head coach Adam Gase is one of the main reasons Adams doesn’t feel right about sticking around long-term. On Thursday, Williams looked to defuse the situation by describing Adams’s excellent play and versatility on the field.

The Jets defensive coordinator mentioned how Adams isn’t just a defensive back—something Adams also believes.

Remember, part of what the kid is fighting is the stigma that safeties don’t deserve to be the upper-echelon of paid positions in the NFL. Williams furthered the idea that Adams is much more than a strong safety by mentioning how he can play linebacker and edge rusher (along with this strong or even two or three-deep safety duties).

Williams is entering the second year as Jets DC. In 2019, he led the Jets to the league’s 10th best defensive DVOA (-5.8%), per Football Outsiders.
