New York Jets safety Jamal Adams accuses general manager Joe Douglas of shopping him before the trade deadline.

The NFL trade deadline came and went with no movement from the New York Jets other than the trade of Leonard Williams. There was talk about the possibility of Le’Veon Bell, Robby Anderson and Jamal Adams all finding themselves as part of trade deals. However, nothing came to fruition.

Adams was actually reported to be inquired by the Dallas Cowboys on Tuesday. Did Adams request to be traded in the first place? Well, we don’t know the legitimate truth. However, according to Adams, he certainly didn’t.

The All-Pro safety took to Twitter to express that as well as accuse general manager Joe Douglas of shopping him around.


Douglas insisted that he didn’t shop Adams, but just fielded calls on him. This is, in fact, his job. He didn’t call teams on the matter. Therefore, there’s a chance this could be a huge misunderstanding between the Pro Bowler and his general manager.

Per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the only way the Jets would’ve shipped Adams off to Dallas is if they were given a first-round pick and two second-round picks in return.

The Cowboys front office didn’t budge, as the deal would’ve been too expensive for them, per Albert Breer of The Monday Morning Quarterback.

Thus, Adams remains in green and white. He and the Jets will get to work on preparing for their Week 9 matchup with the Miami Dolphins.
