Jets, Jamal Adams Reach Impasse in Contract Negotiations

Jamal Adams' current deal will see him earn $3.5m in 2020 rising to $9.9m in his fifth year

The Jets reportedly entertained trade offers for Adams past year, with the Dallas Cowboys heavily linked.

We heard yesterday that the Jets and star safety Jamal Adams have reached an impasse.

The 24-year-old, a two-time Pro Bowl selection since being taken by NY with the sixth overall pick in 2017, is entering his fourth season and is due to make $3.5m in 2020. However, that hasn't stopped Adams' name from popping up in trade rumors in the past year. The Jets remain intent on signing Adams to an extension and have no desire to trade him.

Hopefully cooler heads will prevail and Adams will stay with the Jets.

What is clear is that the Jets are not interested in setting a sizable precedent by extending Adams after his third National Football League season.

Adams, eligible for a new contract now that he has completed his third season, said in January he wants an extension by the start of the 2020 season. He's been paid $18.75 million since being selected by the Jets sixth overall in the 2017 NFL Draft. In 14 games for the Jets in 2019, Adams recorded 61 tackles, 10 tackles for a loss, seven passes defended, two forced fumbles and an interception while being named a First-Team All-Pro for the first time in his career. And it's one that can't be considered without the clearance of a daunting trade hurdle. The Jets aren't actively shopping Adams on the trade market, and Adams' agent doesn't have permission to facilitate a trade.

That's something that could linger in any future talks and result in Dallas having a more expensive price tag, especially if Adams is willing to play in Dallas on his rookie deal, which he clearly doesn't want to do for the Jets.
