New York Jets legend Nick Mangold is certainly not buying the stuff Jamal Adams is selling with his new team, the Seattle Seahawks.

If Nick Mangold portrayed a quiet, dull and unadventurous personality, he simply would not be Nick Mangold. New York Jets fans point to his captivating personality as the reason he’s so beloved.

Perhaps an eye-opening Mangold comment on the Jamal Adams situation was inevitable. Actually, forget comment—the former Jets center outright mocked what Adams had to say to the Seattle media Thursday.

Using Kevin Malone, from the hit show The Office, Mangold made it clear where he stands on Adams’ statement that his “plan is to retire in Seattle.”

“I’m here to stay, and I’m excited to be a Seattle Seahawk,” Adams said on a Zoom call with the Seahawks beat.

Adams, 24, was traded to the Seahawks, along with a 2022 fourth-round pick, for safety Bradley McDougald, a pair of first-rounders (2021 and 2022), and a 2021 third-round selection last Saturday. An offseason of social media drama finally came to a head when Joe Douglas pulled the trigger on trading his most productive player.

Mangold—arguably the best center in Jets history (save for the Kevin Mawae arguments)—played 11 seasons in the NFL, all with the Jets. The Jets have suffered greatly at the center position since his retirement following the 2016 campaign.

The seven-time Pro Bowler and two-time first-team All-Pro player is a guy whose production ranked him atop the league at his position for the majority of his career. Before Adams pushes back, it’s important to note Mangold’s dominance. (This isn’t just any player speaking out of turn.)

Adams also mentioned that he asked God to send him to the right situation. Thanks to the evidence that’s piled up over the last few months, it’s safe to say most Jets fans are with Mangold on this one: the Seahawks will not be Adams’ last NFL team.
