The Associated Press’ All Pro team is the highest individual honor a player can receive in the NFL. The team was announced today, and Jets safety Jamal Adams was named First Team All Pro.

Adams recorded 75 tackles, 6.5 sacks, 2 forced fumbles, and 1 interception in 2019. After an uneven start to the season, he finished strong. When the Jets won a game this season, odds are Adams played really well. There were some games where Jamal took the team on his back. In a difficult stretch for the team overall, I think it is fair to say the Jets have found themselves a bona fide superstar at the safety position.

Spoiler alert: Get used to me talking a lot this offseason about the Jets’ need to get Adams on a long-term contract extension.

This is Jamal’s second All Pro selection. A year ago he was named Second Team All Pro.
