Adams, the All-Pro safety, said he wants a contract extension from the team that represents “my status.” He sounded optimistic about getting a deal done, and said the team and his agents have had preliminary discussions.
“They’ve talked about it, no numbers yet,” Adams told two New York reporters at the Super Bowl. “I’d be lying if I said I don’t expect to be extended. I do because of not for what I’ve just done on the field, but even off the field for what I’ve done for the organization. I’ve done everything they’ve asked me to do. I’ve done it at a high level each and every year. I’ve proven that I’m the best safety doing it right now.”
Adams also tweeted about it today.
Just to clear this up... we’ve had small discussions thus far, not in detailed talks yet, just talked about it. With that being said, I fully expect to be extended this offseason. I want to be in New York! https://t.co/ecJGxIiofG— Jamal Adams (@Prez) January 29, 2020
Players become eligible to sign extensions after completing their third season in the NFL. 2019 was Adams’ third year in the league.
