New York Jets strong safety Jamal Adams hopped on WFAN to discuss the cruel realities of the current state of the team’s locker room.
After losing 41-10 to the Buffalo Bills on Sunday while witnessing his team’s record fall to 3-7, Adams is now back on the locker room topic.
In hopping on WFAN Sports Radio 660 on Tuesday, He reaffirmed that the culture has yet to change.
“Honestly, I could sit here and sugarcoat everything,” Adams said on WFAN. “But things have not changed. Obviously, we’re still losing. I’m not saying we have guys like that in the locker room. But at the same time, it’s not changing. It hasn’t changed. And we’ve been losing. At the end of the day, we’re going to get it fixed. Soon, the sun will shine.
“You can only say so much. People [in the locker room] come from different backgrounds. I was asked a question after the game if guys are going to quit. That’s something that I cannot control. Obviously, as one of the leaders on the team, I can do my best to change people’s mindsets and how they go about their business. But at the end of the day, everybody is a grown man. I damn sure won’t quit.”
Adams, 23, is in the midst of his second professional season. Tallying 67 total tackles, 1.5 sacks, two forced fumbles, nine passes deflected, and an interception, Adams has played at a legit Pro Bowl level in 2018—and doing so without even an average conventional four-man pass rush in front of him.
Win or lose, the LSU product and Jets captain has remained a vocal and vital part of the organization.
The 3-7 New York Jets take their low point into the bye during Week 11 prior to returning home to take on Tom Brady and the New England Patriots in Week 12—losing culture or not.
