Report: Jets listening but not shopping S Adams

The New York Jets will listen to any trade offers but are “not going to shop” safety Jamal Adams despite the All-Pro’s potential interest in being dealt, Yahoo Sports reported early Saturday.Per the report, Adams wants to be traded if his contract is not extended before the 2020 season, but the Jets would prefer to keep Adams and sign him to an extension in 2021. In the meantime, the Jets will not shop Adams, and his agent does not have permission to seek a deal, but they’ll listen to teams that call.Adams, 24, is coming off his second Pro Bowl appearance and first first-team All-Pro selection in three seasons, but he is under contract through 2021 after the Jets picked up his fifth-year option. He will make $3.6 million between salary and bonuses in 2020, with a $9.9 million salary in 2021.According to Yahoo, the Jets aren’t ready to make Adams the league’s highest-paid safety at this point but could in 2021. Their asking price for Adams when the possibility of a trade emerged last fall was first- and third-round picks, but that isn’t necessarily the price now.The report adds that Adams would prefer, if traded, to land with his hometown Dallas Cowboys, but he would play for other teams. The report also suggests Adams’ father, former NFL running back George Adams, is encouraging a trade.Multiple outlets reported Friday that the Jets and Adams had reached an impasse in extension talks, prompting the increased trade speculation.
