Jamal Adams and the New York Jets have reached an impasse in their contract talks with tensions rising.
Adams is seeking a deal before the start of the season, but the Jets prefer to wait on a long-term extension. The Adams camp is upset, claiming the Jets are dragging their feet.
The possibility of a trade came up in a conversation between the two sides on Wednesday. The Jets remain intent on signing Adams to an extension and have no desire to trade him.
Adams is eligible for a new contract now that he has completed his third season. Adams is due to make $3.5 million in 2020. His salary jumps to $9.9 million in 2021, the amount of his fifth-year option.
