Report: Ravens in trade discussions for Jamal Adams

Coming off back-to-back Pro Bowl appearances, Jamal Adams is seeking a contract extension ahead of the fourth NFL season. But the New York Jets are reportedly unwilling to budge on a new contract this offseason, preferring instead to wait until 2021.

With tension growing between the two sides, trade talks appear to be heating up for the former LSU standout. Longtime NFL writer Gary Myers reported Friday that the Baltimore Ravens are among the teams that have been in discussions with the Jets about a potential trade for Adams.

This comes just one day after Myers reported that there was friction between Adams and the Jets after the two sides had come to a stalemate in contract discussions.

“Sources told me today Jets have given no indication they will sign All-Pro S Jamal Adams to new contract in offseason,” Myers tweeted Thursday. “Want to wait to make decision. He wants contract now. Stalemate has caused friction & sources said trade very possible. It's expected half the teams will call Jets.”

The Ravens’ interest in Adams should not come as a surprise as Baltimore reportedly pursued a trade for the star defensive back ahead of the NFL trade deadline last season.

Adams was angered by reports that the Jets had been taking calls on his availability at the NFL trade deadline, and trade rumors surrounding the 24-year-old have not died down since. Last month, however, Joe Douglas maintained that he wants Adams to be a Jet for the rest of his career, and plans to have conversations with Adams and his representatives in the near future.

"My stance on Jamal hasn't changed," said Douglas while talking about the Jets' NFL Draft haul. "At some point, we're going to get with him and his representatives. ... He's an outstanding player. We would like him to be here a long time."

On several otherwise hapless Jets teams, Adams has been not only the franchise’s best player, but one of the best safeties in the NFL outright. He has made two consecutive Pro Bowl appearances, following up a second-team All-Pro season in 2018 with first-team All-Pro honors last season.

In 14 games last season, Adams notched 75 tackles, including career-highs in both tackles for loss (10) and sacks (6.5), to go along with 13 quarterback hits, seven pass breakups and two forced fumbles. He also scored a pair of defensive touchdowns on a pick-six and fumble return, respectively.

Adams was selected by the Jets with the No. 6 overall pick in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft following a decorated college career at LSU. He spent three seasons with the Tigers, amassing 209 tackles, 18 tackles for loss, two sacks and five interceptions over 36 career games, garnering second-team All-America honors as a junior before declaring for the NFL Draft.

A former five-star recruit out of Hebron High School in Carrollton, Texas, Adams was ranked as the No. 32 overall prospect and No. 2 safety in the country for the 2014 class, according to the 247Sports Composite. He was also the fifth-ranked player in the Lone Star State.
