Jamal is getting advice from his dad and other former nflers. He knows that it’s way harder for safeties to get mega contracts than other positions. From the time he was drafted, the jets have taken a qb, a LT and a potential dominant pass rusher in the first round. Throw in Mims who will be paid if he’s good. Douglas isn’t interested in overpaying for a safety and as the team improves, Adams’ relative impact should decrease.
adams knows his window for a big time contract extension with the jets is closing so it’s hard to blame him for continuing to whine in the media and via social media. That’s his generation and that’s his individual personality. But with mccagnan gone so is his leverage and if the jets do extend him it won’t be for close to the money he thinks he’s worth.
