Good morning, GGN! I hope you’re all having a great start to the day. Former Giants Safety Michael Thomas thinks that Jets’ Safety Jamal Adams can end up being the ‘face of the league’ in the near future. While Adams is a great player, I think this is a fairly outlandish thing to say for a multitude of reasons. The first being that the NFL is a Quarterback’s league; always has been, always will be. The second issue with Thomas’ statement is that Jamal Adams isn’t even the best defensive player in the NFL right now; and it’s debatable that he’s the best Safety in the league right now. While Adams is great, he’s little more than a big-hitting Safety who can also cover well. As a fan/coach, this is great. The flip side is that you won’t see too many exciting plays or takeaways from him. Adams isn’t Ed Reed or Troy Polamalu, and it’s uncertain if he’ll ever reach those levels. So while Thomas’ statement may have given some brownie points to Jets’ fans, it’s nothing more than a headline in this otherwise wasteland of NFL news. With that, here are your links to the team to start your day off.
