If anyone pays remote attention to how modern day sports reporting works, they'd know this is likely the first step in an eventual break-up between the Jets and Adams. It's a clear sign the relationship is strained from at least one or both sides. Someone told Schefter to post this to create buzz and grease the wheels for their desired result. The entire Mookie Betts saga this baseball off-season all started with a seemingly harmless story about how far off he and the Red Sox were in negotiations but "had plenty of time". These sort of stories/tweets aren't done for no reason. Schefter knows where his bread is buttered. 13 minutes ago, Beerfish said: Your statements are counter to each other. Yes the jets hold the hammer and don't have to do anything. Jamal the great team leader is skipping them, hell when there is nothing else in the world to do these days. This is only going to get worse, I think the jets front office and or owner told jamal they would reneg his contract. When they decide not to reneg right now he will bleat like a sheep. Maybe, but right now this is just as much of a non-story as any other star player, with contract negotiations coming up in the next two seasons skipping voluntary virtual workouts. It's not uncommon, it doesn't nec. mean anything and so it's a non-story. That's just how I view it. Everyone knows Jamal wants a new deal, its no secret. I'm not surprised Jets brass don't want to extend him yet. These are voluntary, he has no obligation to be a part of it. I'm not surprised he's skipping it. This could mean the Jets trade him next week to Dallas on draft night OR it could mean he pouts all season (while playing like a stud) then the Jets extend him and he's happy as a clam OR it could mean he pouts all season (while playing like a stud) and the Jets trade him next season OR it could mean the Jets wait until he hits FA and resign him to a mega deal or he gets injured or he holds out or a number of other scenarios that would take entirely too much time to predict. Right now this is barely news. 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
