Jamal Adams led all strong safeties in the NFL's Pro Bowl fan voting with 186,068 votes. … Seems likely he'll be a Pro Bowler for the second straight year once the players and coaches votes are tallied, too.

Adams, 24, made his first Pro Bowl last year in just his second season. He was also selected to his first All-Pro team. Despite dealing with injuries this year (has missed two games), it looks like Adams will receive some of the same accolades he achieved in 2018.
Through 12 games, the third-year pro has racked up 64 combined tackles with eight tackles-for-loss, 12 quarterback hits, 6.5 sacks, two forced fumbles, one interception (one pick-six), and six passes defended. He’s essentially the quarterback of the Jets defense and should absolutely be given the opportunity to participate in his second Pro Bowl.
Adams is the only Jets player to receive the most votes for his respective position. The players and coaches votes have yet to be revealed. The league will release the final Pro Bowl results on Tuesday at 8:00 p.m. ET on NFL Network.
