It’s really a rock and a hard place scenario for both sides. On the one hand, why would Adams agree to trust Douglas to extend him at a later date? He already distrusts him because of the deadline fiasco this year. On the other hand, why would—as you laid out here—Douglas hand Adams free money if he doesn’t have to? The only reason you’d re-do Adams’ contract now is to hand him a bunch of up-front cash with an eye toward opening up cap space down the line, but (as @derp detailed) the Jets don’t even have anyone under contract two years from now, other than Darnold, who they’re going to have to pay. Granted, Adams has minimal leverage at this point, but he’s likely to go the Jalen Ramsey/Yannick Ngouke route and make it hard to keep him in the building, and I wouldn’t blame him. If he can make a stink that results in getting 1. To a team he wants to be on, AND, 2. A raise of between $10-$15 million dollars next year, he should probably go ahead and do it.
