New York Jets fans enjoy roasting Jamal Adams after Russell Wilson trade

Ever since Jamal Adams left the New York Jets in 2020, Jets fans have eagerly jumped on every single opportunity to make fun of the outspoken safety who forced his way out of town.

Another opportunity emerged on Tuesday.

Adams’ Seattle Seahawks traded superstar quarterback Russell Wilson to the Denver Broncos in exchange for five draft picks and three players, igniting a rebuilding process for a franchise that has been known as a perennial contender since Wilson joined the team in 2012.

It’s got to be a tough pill to swallow for Adams, who publicly admitted that he was tired of the rebuilding in New York.

“I was sick of hearing ‘the rebuild year’,” Adams said in a November 2020 interview.

“Let’s be honest, the Jets were the laughingstock,” Adams said. “(In Seattle), this is how the NFL is supposed to be. This is the dream I was dreamin’.”

Welcome back to reality, Jamal.

Jets fans wasted no time pulling out the jokes.

In August 2021, Adams signed a four-year, $70 million contract extension with Seattle that runs through the 2025 season, so he’s pretty much stuck in the Pacific Northwest for whatever trials and tribulations await in the post-Russell Wilson era.

Seattle continued signaling its upcoming rebuild with another big move after the Wilson trade. The Seahawks released eight-time Pro Bowl linebacker Bobby Wagner, who arrived alongside Wilson in the team’s 2012 draft class.

The Jets are scheduled to play the Seahawks in Seattle this season.
