Make the trade, it was the Jets general manager, Joe Douglas, which is in the front office dropped the ball, it was in the first instance, a renewal of his contract negotiations with Adams, 24, is a third-year do-it-all safety with two Pro Bowl appearances and a first-team Pro-team for his NFL credentials.
Speaking to the media for the first time since Saturday, the month in which the trade between the Jets and the Seahawks, Douglas shut down the notion that he messed up with a “promise” to Adam (via The NFL Network’s Kim Jones it on Twitter).
In #Jets conference call, Joe Douglas, disputes that he has reneged on a promise to Jamal Adams: “I have never promised him any offer.” The Adams as a “Jet for life” talk, Douglas said, “That was when I first came here.”

Douglas went into the fight in New York city in June of last year, and after the band of Green, for the hiring of new head coach Adam Gase, and by 2019 the NFL Draft. In his term of office, at the expense of the Jets, Douglas has pursued, in the words of New York’s offensive line, along with the stockpiling of future draft picks (and coincidentally, load up on picks in 2021, when there may not be a college football season in 2020-21).
With Douglas, the Jets saw the relationship with Adams, a former sixth-overall pick) from LSU by the AFC East franchise, high-strung, especially in the days leading up to the trade and the All-Pro safety, put Gase and Douglas fir on blast in a exclusive interview with the New York Daily News. Adams had strong words against Gase, in particular, as the former Miami Dolphins coach, who is now in his second year in New York, New York, was criticized for failing to engage with each of the players in the locker room.
Adam starts a new chapter in his career with Seattle as the Jets try to move forward with a qualified security McDougald, and more draft picks to help rebuild it and maybe it will help with the rising third-year quarterback, Sam Darnold, and, of course, is to resolve, in one way or the other, and the headache from his public opposition to the football team.
