Jamal Adams seems frustrated the Jets were discussing him in trade talks

NFL: Buffalo Bills at New York Jets Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports

Tuesday afternoon there were trade rumors about Jamal Adams potentially being dealt by the Jets. He took to Twitter to express frustration.

Based on what we know so far, Adams’ statement might be inaccurate. The reports detailing trade talks have suggested other teams initiated the talks rather than the Jets shopping him. It is impossible to prove one way definitively or the other.

While I understand Jamal’s frustration, no player is untouchable. For every single player there is a price where a trade makes sense. It certainly doesn’t sound like the Jets were in any rush to deal Adams if the report that they turned down a first round pick from the Cowboys is true.

General manager Joe Douglas responded to the situation.

The Jets seem to have an issue on their hands now. It is up to the team to resolve it.

For what it is worth, the media reports we have heard back Douglas’ story. Piecing together separate accounts of what the Jets asked for and what the Cowboys offered, it doesn’t sound like the two sides were even in the same ballpark.
