Jamal Adams snapped back at his former team, the New York Jets, Monday, by saying, “I don’t think I’m gonna get bored winning.”

You just knew it was only a matter of time. This man cannot let it go; it’s simply not in his nature.

On Monday, former New York Jets star safety Jamal Adams clapped back at his former team, specifically Gregg Williams.

“G-dub, man, he definitely misses me – I would have to say that a lot of them miss me over there,” Adams told Danny and Gallant on 710 ESPN Seattle. “I don’t think I’m gonna get bored winning. So that’s how I look at it. I’m gonna be alright.”

Adams, 24, was traded to the Seattle Seahawks along with a 2022 fourth-round pick for safety Bradley McDougald, a pair of first-round selections (2021, 2022) and a 2021 third-rounder. He joins a defense that finished 18th in DVOA a year ago as compared to the Jets’ 10th-placed finish.

Williams stirred the pot late last week when he thought aloud about the possibility his former safety could get bored in Seattle’s vanilla Cover 3 defense.

“Jamal may get bored there because they don’t use their safety-type things with all the complexities,” Williams said.“ …maybe not showing what they’re doing as much as we do.”

By no means was Adams’ overall tone disrespectful. In fact, he complimented Williams’ scheme. At the same time, his outlook on what he wants (and what he thinks he’s going to get) moving forward is blatantly apparent.

“I think that I was in a great type of defense over there in New York – (Jets defensive coordinator) Gregg Williams did an outstanding job,” Adams said. “But over here, I think they’re gonna let me roam a little bit more, they’re gonna let me be me, they’re gonna put me in positions to get my hand more on the ball so I’m not classified a box safety.”

The jury is still out on whether or not Adams can shake that “box safety” tag, which, at this point, has to annoy him at least a bit. After all, he’s entering the fourth year of his five-year rookie deal (fifth-year option included). The 2021 offseason will be a big one for Jamal Adams—as everybody is well-aware.

Maybe, but he’s probably going to get bored of losing in the divisional round every year when Schotty slams the ball up the gut behind their subpar offensive line 42 times despite having the best QB in the NFC

Jamal was ultimately none of the things he professed to be. Your article on him becoming the “Prez” was spot on. I’m glad we don’t have his diva antics overshadowing everything and that Bell is a real leader.
