NY Jets were smart to trade Jamal Adams in hindsight

If they draft a couple busts with Seattle's picks then this isn't the coup that many claim it is.

If they get a couple solid starters or the extra capital leads to being able to acquire Watson then yes, it was a good move.

Many here are celebrating Adams worst season (which was still good enough to be an all pro) but he will return to form next year with a trajectory towards a gold jacket.

I could care less if Adams makes the Hall of Fame or the Pro Bowl he still isn't the kind of difference maker that's worth over 20 mil a year and 2 first round picks.

It was absolutely the right thing to do, especially being a team in need of a proper rebuild. You don't draft a safety at 6 overall and try to build a defense around one, just not the smart thing to do. 

Now lets hope Douglas can make use of those picks and find some talented players for our team.

Still needs to ace this draft.

Absolutely. This is it for JD.  He must hit his picks and FA's this year.  He can always play it safe and trade 4 1st rounders, 2 2nd's and a 3rd for Watson and plead the 5th after going 7-9 for the next 3 seasons.

Anyone who didn’t see the logic or need to dump Jamal Adams when we did is a fool and doesn’t get to retroactively apologize for supporting Adams and/or support signing him to an extension. You were a clown then and you shall forever remain a clown in perpetuity. EAD. 

Thar she blows! You left out "IMHO", but I'll let it slide . . . because it was a cheap out to quote myself. 😏

Putting aside your going for absurdity that no team would need to surrender, plus an equally absurd 3-year ceiling 7-9 record with Watson that the Jets were able to achieve last year with f***ing Darnold... 

Should Watson actually be in play, the 4 first rounders part of your scenario works out to one of our two (original) upcoming 1st rounders (whether 2021 or 2022) + Adams + Darnold.

In reality, it wouldn’t take 4 1st rounders (#2 + #23 + Darnold pick + next year’s Seattle pick) to get him. If Watson is made available, then the Jets need only to outbid the next-highest bidder, not come up with imaginary bids to appease Houston’s fans.

If we get a new water boy it was a good move. We got rid of a whiny bitch, Revis III, which in itself was enough to justify the trade. Good riddance.

If he was Revis it would have been a bad trade.  Best player in Jets history and a huge difference maker.

Jamal can't hold Ed Reeds jock strap! He'd have to play 100 years to equal Ed Reeds turnovers produced. 

Leader of Men? Hardly. I'm still amazed how this guy got over on the media. It was surreal to watch Seattle on prime time games & as soon as he showed up on the TV screen pounding his chest, the announcers would go right into this diatribe of bull sh*t about the great Jamal Adams. 

I've never seen anything like it. When Bozwell entered the NFL doing literally the same thing, everyone in the media were just waiting for the moment they could knock him down. So when arguably one of the greatest athletes of all time Bo Jackson ran through him for a touchdown it became the biggest joke in the NFL. Hell, Alex Smith made Jamal Adams his personal bitch & nothing was made of it. The teflon is wearing off Adams finally & Seattle fans aren't stupid. Good luck on that big contract Jamal, your gonna need it.

But that trade set the bar higher for Watson.

It certainly did not, a move made by a stupid gm , does not set market. The stafford trade is a better indicator..we all know its 3 numbers ones- plus, and i am 100% sure the Texans will get that .

If JD winds up using the 2 picks he acquired for this blowhard to get Deshaun Watson, his trade of Adams will go down as one of the best trades in all of sports in the last 20+ years.

The thing about Adams, aside from his mouth, is that on the field, he likely shouldnt be a safety.  He needs to be moved to more of an OLB role where he can play the run, rush regularly and rarely if ever be asked to cover a WR.  TE yes, hes decent in coverage vs TEs, but he simply cannot cover NFL WRs.  The play in their playoff loss summed up his entire coverage skill-set. Burned by the WR who ran straight down the field and then when he gets bailed out by a severely underthrown ball, he completely misplays it and a possible turnover turns into a big gain.  

2 firsts for a player you have to scheme your entire defense around.  What a country!

Revis may be the "best player" in Jets history as he had 2-3 seasons that were essentially historic for a CB.

As a fan though, what he did in his last season here was an absolute disgrace.  If he didnt want to play thats fine, retire and keep your health, but to give zero effort after playing at the level he did throughout his career was a real sad thing to watch and for me as a fan tarnished my opinion of him.

It seemed to be a smart move at the time as well. Seattle is screwed. They can't really justify a huge contract on his play but they gave up more than 2 first rounders to get hin. Would think Seattle ill franchise him maybe try to tag and trade and recoup anything they can.

He's under contract this year, so no need to franchise him.  But, I can't imagine there aren't conversations about what they'd hope for, and be willing to take, if they were to flip him.
