Last season, the Cowboys were in trade talks for Jets star safety Jamal Adams. With minutes before the trade deadline, the two teams were unable to strike a deal. The Jets were reportedly asking for multiple high picks. In turn, the Cowboys could not pull the trigger.
But, it seems that trade talks between Dallas and the Jets could spark up once again if the Jets cannot agree to a long-term deal with Adams. Dallas Cowboys insider, Mike Fisher, revealed the possibility via twitter.

Adams is currently heading into his fourth year in the NFL. The 2020 season will be the last of his rookie contract unless the Jets use his fifth-year option. With Adams being a proven All-Pro at his position, it would not come to any surprise if the Jets decided to extend the safety long-term. This may be difficult for the team considering that Adams is set to earn a top-tier contract for the safety position.
If the Jets are unable to get a deal done, the Cowboys will reportedly send a high-pick offer in return for Adams. Although the Cowboys just signed Haha Clinton-Dix, the team still needs an every-down playmaker. Adams can definitely be that playmaker.
As the draft approaches, the situation will become more interesting. With the Jets desperately in need of receivers and offensive linemen, the 2020 draft will be the perfect opportunity to address those positions. If the Cowboys were to offer up their 17th pick in the draft, it may entice the Jets to negotiate.
