Jamal Adams, Jets Reach Impasse On Extension Talks

That's a more-than-decent haul.

More than half the teams in the NFL have reached out to NY about Adams' availability, which is not all that surprising given his status as one of the league's best defensive backs.

Adams is reportedly seeking a big-money extension before the start of the season, but the Jets prefer to wait, which has led to increased tension between the two parties.

Will the Cowboys be willing to make the deal, and bring Adams back home to Dallas? The Adams camp is upset, claiming the Jets are dragging their feet. The Jets remain intent on signing Adams to an extension and have no desire to trade him.

Adams wants that contract this offseason, after Year 3 - the earliest point at which a player can get a second contract. While the Jets brass has emphasized the word voluntary, it seemed like Adams was attempting to send a message to the front office. Therefore, the Jets appear to be putting off his contract until the final year of his deal. He was a first-team All-Pro selection for the first time last season.

According to Gary Myers of the New York Daily News, a trade involving Adams is "very possible" due to contract stalemate. So no, general manager Joe Douglas doesn't have to pay Adams right now. Douglas has a lot of roster holes, and Adams does not play a premium position.

The Jets have to take care of this ongoing Adams situation before it becomes a distraction.
