New York Jets All-Pro safety Jamal Adams notes that he’s past all the “drama and nonsense” that’s emerged this week.
Jamal Adams has been a trending topic this week, and not for the best reasons.
The New York Jets All-Pro safety has been the subject of what’s being known as “trade deadline drama.” It began when he accused Joe Douglas of shopping him around to other teams, which isn’t what happened. All Douglas did was field calls, something that’s in his job description as the team’s general manager.
But Adams didn’t even like the fact that calls were fielded on him in the first place. The veteran still energetically practiced and prepared for the Miami Dolphins this week despite not showing happiness with either Douglas nor head coach Adam Gase.
However, with the team’s matchup inching closer, Adams notified his Twitter followers that he’s “past all the drama and nonsense.”
My goal is still to be one of the best safeties in NFL History.
My goal is still to help my team win a Super Bowl.
My goal is still to set a standard of passion, effort, & excellence each time we take the field.
I’m past all the drama & nonsense.

Adams wasn’t the only player the Jets fielded calls on prior to Tuesday’s deadline. New York also listened in on offers for running back Le’Veon Bell and wide receiver Robby Anderson. Nothing came to fruition for either individual.
The only player the Jets dealt was veteran defensive lineman Leonard Williams, who they sent to the New York Giants this past Monday. In return, they received a 2020 third-round pick and a 2021 fifth-round pick.
The Jets are 1-6 heading into Sunday’s matchup. Luckily, the Dolphins are even worse at 0-7. The two AFC East rivals are set to kick off in Miami at 1 p.m. ET.
