Jets standout safety Jamal Adams is once again making headlines for requesting a trade. The First-Team All-Pro defensive back made it clear that he wanted out of New York when he released his preferred destinations earlier this week–with the Dallas Cowboys topping the list.
Cowboys’ owner Jerry Jones tried to land Adams last season before the trade deadline. However, the price tag was too big and Jones never pulled the trigger. Now, it seems like America’s Team is back into the mix for the safety.
A fan recently asked Adams if he was coming to Dallas after running into the safety in public. Adams responded with, “I’m trying bro.”

Adams may of spent his college days at Louisiana State University, but his home town is Lewisville, Texas; only 25 miles away from Dallas. This explains Adams’ desire to play for the Cowboys. The safety has expressed his interest for playing with Dallas since early last season.
The Jets selected Adams with the sixth overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft. Since then, Adams has been nothing but spectacular for the team. In his first three seasons, the safety totaled 273 combined tackles, two interceptions, six forced fumbles, 25 pass deflections and 12 sacks.
Because of his impressive performances, Adams is regarded as one of the best safeties in the league. For that reason, the Jets have expressed no interest in parting ways with Adams. With each side having opposing views, animosity may be growing between the team and Adams.
Whether or not Adams wants to be a Jet when the 2020 season begins, he may have to play with the team anyway. Adams can be stuck with in this situation for a while as he has two years left on his contract.
