“It’s about to be a great week. Let’s attack it!”
Adams, 24, has been an embattled soul for the better part of the last two months. Wanting a contract extension (similarly to draft-class brothers such as Myles Garrett, Christian McCaffrey and Patrick Mahomes, who were all granted that wish this offseason), the best safety in the league has made his unhappiness known.
From telling the world he was “trying” to get to “Dallas” to publicly saying his goodbyes to fellow safety Marcus Maye, the LSU product has done everything possible to make as much noise as possible.
Throughout the entire process, Joe Douglas and the Jets have remained stonefaced. Not a peep has surfaced from the organization—a welcomed change from prior regimes. The only public sentiments coming from Florham Park were concise: they wanted to make Adams a “Jet for life,” and the process of getting with the Adams camp would begin once the draft process finished.
A year ago, Adams, the first-team All-Pro, finished with 6.5 sacks, a pick-six in New England, two forced fumbles, a fumble recovery, seven passes defended and 75 tackles (10 for loss).
Over the last couple of weeks, Adams’ social media tune has drastically changed. Instead of defiance, silence has been the name of his game. Now, suddenly, he looks like he’s ready to roll for camp.
Jets rookies report on Tuesday with veterans slated for July 28—the date in which all franchises will commence camp. Quarterbacks and injured players are allowed to report two days after the rooks, which coincides well with Adams’ message that football is around the corner, and he intends on reporting.
