FRISCO (105.3 The Fan) - New York Jets GM Joe Douglas conceded on Monday that as much as he wants All-Pro safety Jamal Adams to be a “Jet for Life,” he’s not ruling out an NFL Draft-time trade of the disgruntled star.
"Going into this draft, my goal isn't to move any players," Douglas told reporters. "But if a team calls, (we) will listen."
Said Jones (via 105.3 The Fan) when asked about the subject in general: “I think you have to be open at all times to improving your team.”
The animosity that exists between Adams and the Jets - who exchanges trade offers with Dallas last October - is all about New York’s slowness in giving Adams an extension that would make him the highest-paid safety in the NFL.
The Cowboys in October were willing to give the Jets a first-round pick and a player (cornerback Anthony Brown). Dallas was also prepared to do the new contract.
The Jets have a problem, and now, with an assumed Adams holdout, they’ve admitted a willingness to listen to solutions. The Cowboys have the No. 17 pick in Thursday’s NFL Draft ... and a chance to offer an answer.
