Several members of the Jets organization spoke to the media on Thursday.
Defensive coordinator Gregg Williams has never been afraid to speak his mind. He had some interesting comments about former Jets safety Jamal Adams and his fit with his new team in Seattle.
Gregg Williams also said that Jamal Adams "may get bored" in Seattle, because the Seahawks don't do nearly as much with their safeties as Williams does with the Jets.— Ralph Vacchiano (@RVacchianoSNY) August 13, 2020
There isn’t much doubt that Williams’ defense is less predictable than Seattle’s.
Williams also expressed excitement about the safeties who are here.
Interesting...#Jets DC Gregg Williams says he has gone back and watched high school film on @ashtyndavis27. Likes that he was a college-walk on.— Kristian Dyer (@KristianRDyer) August 13, 2020
"Sharp guy, extremely smart guy. Sharp mentally." Praises his work ethic too.#NYJ #TakeFlight
Gregg Williams on new S Bradley McDougald: "He's very very good. I love those kind of guys... that (have) to prove (them)selves. He carries himself with a nice healthy chip on his shoulder... He works extremely hard."— Manish Mehta (@MMehtaNYDN) August 13, 2020
Even without Adams, this has the potential to be an above average group at the safety position.
Marcus Maye spoke about how his role might evolve within the defense without Adams.
Marcus Maye believes he can play in the box along with the post with Jamal Adams gone. "I feel like I can do both jobs."— Manish Mehta (@MMehtaNYDN) August 13, 2020
Says he believes he has "no limits" in what he can provide to Jets defense.
While Maye won’t bring Adams’ level of playmaking to the table, don’t sell short his versatility. Many have miscast him as purely a deep safety, but one of the reasons the Jets picked him in the second round in 2017 was his ability to do it all.
Meanwhile Jordan Jenkins was rather blunt in his feelings about the 2020 season.
