Gregg Williams didn't want to comment on the specifics of Jamal Adams' contract dispute with the New York Jets, but the defensive coordinator issued support to the safety and sounded cautiously optimistic about his return.

"You never, ever mess with a guy's contract, but I've got his back on those types of things," Williams said. "He has to get all that stuff settled, so now, boom! Get back into our setting and now we're ready to roll. He knows that."

Adams formally requested a trade from the Jets last week.

Since then, he has expressed on social media that his days with the Jets are over.
