Jamal Adams had previously requested a trade. For quite some time no one felt that the trade was going to be processes. The Jets weren’t publicly taking trade calls, almost any player can be traded for the right price, but the Jets weren’t openly listening for trades. Then the right call came along and the Jets made a deal. That or Adams finally said what he had to about the Jets organization and head coach. Probably a bit of both.
Trade: Jets deal Jamal Adams and 4th-round pick in 2022 To Seattle, in exchange for Bradley McDougald (safety), 1st-round pick in 2021, 3rd-round pick in 2021, and 1st-round pick in 2022, source tells ESPN. Deal is pending physicals. — Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) July 25, 2020
If you really want to get traded away from a team the tried and true method of calling out the head coach and saying he will never get your team to the Super Bowl is a great way to do it. Two first round picks for Adams makes sense but the Jets weren’t keeping the stud safety after what he said about head coach Adam Gase.
“I don’t feel like he’s the right leader for this organization to reach the Promised Land,” Adams said. “As a leader, what really bothers me is that he doesn’t have a relationship with everybody in the building. “At the end of the day, he doesn’t address the team,” Adams added. “If there’s a problem in the locker room, he lets another coach address the team. If we’re playing sh—y and we’re losing, he doesn’t address the entire team as a group at halftime. He’ll walk out of the locker room and let another coach handle it.” New York Daily News
That statement came out Friday the 24th and the Adams trade was announced Saturday the 25th. Jamal Adams wanted out and all he had to do was say what everyone already knew about Adam Gase. That he doesn’t care about anyone on the team but the Quarterbacks and a few other guys on the offensive side of the ball. The man does not understand defense to such a degree that he can’t even give defensive players the time of day. Considering Adam Gase and Jamal Adams haven’t spoken to each other since December 30th it all checks out. Gase only cares about scoring points, which as an offensive coordinator thats fine, however, when you’re the head coach you have to give a shit about every single part of the team. Even the punters and kickers. Easy punters and kickers joke, check. If you follow Adam Gase and his career at all the fact that another player has accused Gase of being a terrible head coach and wants to leave the team isn’t a surprise. Adam Gase was terrible with the Dolphins. He wasn’t all that great as the Bears offensive coordinator either. Plus he didn’t contribute a thing to the Denver B
